Graduated from Patrick Henry High School (Roanoke, VA) in 1975; from University of Virginia in 1981 with a BA in economics; and from George Mason University in 1989 with an MS in electrical engineering. Married Pamela Welsh in April 1982. Worked in Northern VA and Pittsburgh as an engineer and was awarded two patents. Retired to care for his son, Grady, and to pursue his engineering ideas. He leaves behind several boxes of work. A voracious reader, Brian loved to talk with friends and neighbors and was quick to offer help and advice. He enjoyed engaging youngsters. Grady loved Brian's elephant trumpets, crashing airplane imitations, and spending time on his lap, leading to the nickname of fully adjustable dad-omatic. A fan of movies, Brian tried his hand at writing screenplays, which Pam enjoyed reading.
