It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Brian has passed away. It happened suddenly while he slept Saturday night.

 

He was 65 years old and is survived by his wife and son and daughter in law. Some of you might have seen posts about Brian on Facebook. I waited until after the celebration of life took place before posting here.

 

He will be missed by everyone that ever knew him. Twenty-seven year military vet, slot car and R/C racer, car and motorcycle enthusiast, skier, windsurfer, family man, and of course slot car track builder.

Steve,

 

I first met you and Brian when you came down to Manchester, NH, to install the three tracks at Queen City Speedway.

 

Brian was a very helpful person over the years. He'll be widely missed.

I'm so sorry to hear this. My condolences to his family.


We all need to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.

So sad to see this news. I bought two tracks from Brian in recent years and I came to consider him a friend. Terrible loss to all that knew him.

 

RIP Brian.

Sorry to hear this news.
 
As a complete aside, Bob Cozine was an avid windsurfer, a fact I don't think many know.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Brian attended a few events at my raceway. A very nice guy. May he rest in peace.
