Always fair, most of the time smiling, incredibly funny, a great friend. You mentored many officials over your short career and myself being one of them. All our hours spent on the decks were some of the best time we had. You were truly one of the good guys. Gods Speed


I’m happy to see the donations coming in for Brian. He volunteered his time at swim meets which seemed to be every single weekend, and the support coming in from the swim community is well deserved.


So sad to hear about his passing. I swam with/against his son for many years. Pacific swimming has lost a great man.
