    Although I never had a chance to meet Brian face to face, I did have the opportunity to talk to him occasionally from my workplace at Fayetteville Public Works. The way he conducted himself when representing Duke Progress while on the job reflected in a very positive way on his company and coworkers. I can certainly understand all of the positive comments directed toward his memory.
