It was a privilege to have worked with you, Brian, a true gentleman. My condolenses go out to your family at this very sad time.

Posted by Pat Slevin on 21st December 2012
My deepest sympathies go to Brian's family on their sad loss. I remember Brian well, especially when we were engaged, on opposite sides of the table, in resolving staff issues. Brian was always energetic and determined in presenting his case, but in our several encounters, I cannot recall one occasion when he was unpleasant or aggressive. Always the gentleman.
Posted by Roger Linnell on 21st December 2012
I had the pleasure of working and living near Brian for many years. He was a true gentleman. I remember his kind words and support to new staff who he would take under his wing. We shared many laughs and a few beers. Brian you will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with you and your wonderful family. RIP buddy love Roger, Dionne and Cameron x
