Dear Dana, Judy and family.... I am so sorry for your loss, my heart aches for you. I will always remember Brian for his energetic ways as a young boy in the days we crossed paths on the soccer and lacrosse fields as well his personable ways he displayed as a young man at the most recent talks we had sharing stories about hunting and other outdoor exploits. I always enjoyed his presence...he will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, God Bless you. Sincerely, Tom Hart.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hoffmanns in their time of this tragic loss. Brian is part of many great memories from skiing in Truxton, to playing lacrosse in Homer, and listening to his stories of his time guiding in the Midwest. His wit and charisma will truly be missed by all. Rest in Peace Brian. Jed Hart
sorry for your loss,Brian you will be missed!! Not, How Did He Die, But How Did He Live? Not how did he die, but how did he live? Not what did he gain, but what did he give? These are the units to measure the worth Of a man as a man, regardless of birth. Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed? But had he befriended those really in need? Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer, To bring back a smile, to banish a tear? But how many were sorry when he passed away
