    Brian was one of a kind…one of those people you could always count on to be there and be the same no matter what. I first met him in 1988 at the Hushpuppy when I was 16. He taught me how to wash dishes, cook fish, and catch fish :) For the past year or so my son has worked along side him at the Catfish Hole and considers him a legend. So do I. Love you and miss you Brian.

    Dear Family and Friends:
    I am praying for your comfort and strength to shine through at this time.
    May God lift you up and remind you that Brian is now beautifully perfected in Heaven.

    I worked with him for many years at the “Hole” and he was such a joy to be around and always made me chuckle. Those were some good times and the Catfish Hole family has lost quite an asset and will never be the same.

    Dear Aunt Mary Jane, Ronnie, Brenda and Linda, you are all in my, Dad’s and Erin’s prayers. Brian was always so sweet and kind to me. He was a lot of fun when we were kids. I used to love riding on the dirt bike with him at the old fish frys. He’d take me outside to the coke cooler and we’d walk around the yard and visit. We’d have so much fun lighting fire crackers and bottle rockets. I remember the time he came to L.A. and we went to the ocean. I will miss Brian… Know that you are constantly being prayed for and know that this pain will ease one day… Love you all! Cousin Kelly
