He was born in Norwood, MA and came to Dudley with his family at the age of ten and lived over 30 years in Dudley and Webster. He was a graduate of SHRHS in Dudley. He worked as a Police Officer with the UMASS / MEMORIAL Police in Worcester. Brian was a reserve officer with the Webster Police. He served the public for over 20 years with service as a Dudley Fire Dept. on-call and volunteer firefighter, an EMT with Webster EMS, Himmer, EasCare and Patriot ambulance companies.
Brian devoted his life to helping others, with his police and emergency service work and always conducted himself with professionalism. If he could help, he would. You couldnt go anywhere with Brian without him knowing someone who greeted him with a big smile. He seemed to know everyone and always had the time to talk. And boy did he know how to chat.
