Brian Archie was born April 18,1991 and passed away on Sunday, April 21, 2013. He was a father, son, friend, and a part of the UB Track and Field team. He loved life, family, friends, track and most of all his son. Brian Archie was a very caring and passionate person who really felt the pain of those around him. He had become very depressed over the years and struggled. The main issue that he had in life was the pre-judgement of others. He felt that people shouldn't judge those they do not know. He felt that the worst thing people can do is not take the time to get to know an individual and judge them. HIs struggles eventually caught up with him Sunday when he passed. Now it is our job to raise awareness about judging and demeaning others. We have all heard countless stories of people taking their lives due to depression. It is time for this to stop and for us as a community to become a solution to this epidemic. We need to be the shoulder people can lean on and a friend people can cry with. We need to be together to make this world a better place.
His son is one of the reasons we have created this page. The first reason is to raise awareness about depression. The second and most important is to raise money for is son. Brian loved his son dearly. He would have done anything to be sure that his son had it all. Brian was a full-time student, athlete, and father. He was working throughout school to make sure he could give his son everything. That is why we are here to ask for your help.
If you can donate anything to help his son, we would be more than thankful. All of the money will go straight to his son for a college fund and other necessities that he may need as a young man.
Thank you in advance for your support. Even if you cannot donate please spread the word, it is very much appreciated. Help us help a family in need and in grief. The goal is an arbitrary amount. We want to give as much as possible.
Please pray to God for Brian's soul as well as continued strength for his family.
