I had the pleasure of being Brian's personal trainer for many years. Brian was one of the most consistent clients I have ever worked with. He would always be at the gym at 5:15am getting ready for a workout. He loved sports and he always enjoyed talking with me about baseball. Even when Brian was fighting cancer he made it a priority to exercise. I will always remember Brian for his consistency and great work ethic. He will be greatly missed and it was a true pleasure getting to know Brian

I had the privilege of working closely with Brian on numerous project health checks traveling the globe with him to Perth, Al Khobar, Paris and NYC to name a few and also working with him for 8+ years on Golf for Greenville. Brian was hard working and dependable yet easy going; never speaking a harsh word about anyone. He was the inaugural recipient of the Jim Stein award as recognition for his tireless contributions to Golf for Greenville. May God bless you Brian and welcome you into his arms.

To the Smith family, I am so very, very sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. I know you were already aware but Brian had the most giving heart for his Faith, his friends and the various charities he supported over the years. He was always there for people and it was felt. Brian, I truly enjoyed working for you all those years ago and I hope you knew how much you were appreciated. Best wishes my friend and I know we'll catch up again someday. - Dave Stroup

My dear Brian. I only met you through our Damian McGinty zoom calls but I always loved seeing your smile and gentle nature. Our conversions about sports outside of the zoom calls were sometimes hilarious. Being Canadian and living in Ontario I always teased you about my love for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Montreal Canadiens. You always had a comeback for me lol! May God hold you in the palm of His hand! Rest easy my friend. Nadine!
