Brian worked at GE in N.Y working with large power turbins for 38 years. When he retired they moved to Florida. Brian loved the beach and riding his motorcycle. He enjoyed fishing and traveling and and daily coffee time at Peggy’s diner with great friends and family as well as Ruthie’s and the sandbar he will be truly missed by a lot of people.
There will be no service and only a small gathering of close family and friends. He was a simple man and would want a simple goodbye.
