Brian was born March 18, 1963 in Woodbury, New Jersey, where he lived until he was nine. His family embedded their roots in rural Ulster, Pennsylvania, where Brian grew up learning to love hunting, riding his motorcycle, and spending time with friends. Brian married his high school sweetheart and best friend, Carolyne Schlosser, on Dec. 5, 1981. Shortly after, Brian joined the United States Air Force in February of 1982. He served as a Jet Engine Mechanic and earned the rank of Staff Sergeant until his honorable discharge in July of 1992.
Brian and Carolyne built a beautiful family and legacy throughout their 42 years of marriage, having two children and helping to raise multiple neighborhood kids who were always welcome in their home. Brian built a career at The Daily Review/Towanda Printing Company, where he worked for more than 25 years. In his most recent years, Brian enjoyed spending his days with his family, especially his grandchildren and his dogs, Tucker and Abraham. His favorite hobby was decorating for and celebrating Halloween. His family asks that in his memory you will continue to spread the Halloween spookiness throughout the season.
A quote from his favorite movie, Young Frankenstein:
“Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: What a filthy job.
Igor: Could be worse.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: How?
Igor: Could be raining ... (thunder, followed by rain)”
