While thinking about Brian, many good memories come to mind. I can recall one Christmas when Evan and I attended a small Christmas party at Brian's old house. I don't remember many details, but I do remember Brian scrambling to find us a gift, since they didn't plan on us being there. Brian quickly presented us with some very old comic books. We thought that this was the coolest thing in the world. I remember reading these old comic superhero comics a few times, always careful to put them back into their protective coverings. I still have them to this day, and that means a lot to me. That's just the kind of man he was, always happy to accommodate others. He will be dearly missed.
4-20-18 is the worst day of my life so far. I lost my son I love very much. He is gone but in a different place. hardest thing I have ever went thru by far. I am so proud of Brian and his many years at Hi Tech. To Connie I love you dearly my daughter. I will see you in the next life Brian we need to reschedule the fishing trip since you cant make memorial weekend. I have never felt this bad from any family I have lost before. I love you with all my heart my son.
I am so sorry for your loss. Brian and I were co-workers for the last 24 years. I am sure going to miss him!

My thoughts and prayers to Connie, friends and family. Brian was a man with such a kind and gentle nature and always a smile and a story. Our world lost a great man.

We are so sorry for your loss. We prayed and will continue to pray for your journey forward with faith in eternal life for Brian. The Lord recognizes your mourning and promises comfort and peace. Although it may not feel like that now we will pray you have a sense of that promise to lean on.
I’m sad to hear of the circumstances relating to Brian’s passing. Growing up in the same neighborhood,I knew both Brian & Mark well.
My thoughts are with Marsha, Dan and the rest of the family.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family in this time of dealing with such a tragedy. It is very sad news and my heart hurts for all who are affected by this. Life passes so fast, I have not kept contact with the family in the last couple years like I wanted to, however they have never left my mind. I have many found memories of the good times we've had since the teen years.
I will continue to pray for comfort and strength to get through this.
Prayers and hugs going through this horrible time for the kinser family new of him but we went to school together so sorry he will b truley misses
