I am so saddened to hear of Brian's passing. I worked with him when he began at IDPA right out of college. He had a great sense of humor and was a joy to work with. You have my deepest sympathy

I was so saddened to read of Brian's passing upon my return from a week's vacation. Although I have not seen Brian since high school, I remember Brenda, his sister, and him well. They were both students in my accounting class at Jacksonville High School. I always found Brian to be a kind, quiet, and extremely studious individual who happened to be naturally bright. It was a pleasure to have taught both of these individuals. Over a 41-year teaching career, there are those students who leave a lasting impression. Brian and Brenda were both those kinds of students. You have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your husband, father, son, brother, and friend.

I only knew Brian through his Dad, who always spoke with great pride of all of Brian's accomplishments. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the Brinker family during this time of sorrow.

Dear Dawn and family, I was in Canada when I heard of Brian's passing. I am saddened and so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of knowing Brian during my years at Illinois College. He was a great teammate on our baseball team and Sigma Pi brother. I cherish the time I was able to spend with Brian. Warm Regards, Tom Samuels

I am so sorry to all of the Brinker Family! We are thinking and praying for you daily. Its hard to believe that he won't be there when we drop off the babies in the morning. I will always remember how he taught Ben where his nose was and was always there with a high five =)

I smile when I think of the great times the families of Morgan's BSS basketball teammates had together. Brian was always so supportive of Morgan and all the girls. Anyone who was at the game in Taylorville knows how supportive he was of me! Morgan and Dawn I am so sorry for your loss. Brian was a super guy. Craig Reiser

Brian was a good guy and a kind soul! I knew him in Jr. High, High School, and at Illinois College. I never heard say an unkind word to anyone or about anyone; he harbored ill-will towards no one. Rest in peace, Brian.

Brian is a devoted husband, wonderful father, and cherished family member. Even as an "outlaw" to his family, Brian was always nice, kind, and treated me as just another member of the family. May he forever rest in the loving arms of our Lord, and may we all who are left to mourn find some consolation in that fact. Love Matt
