He was a funny, enthusiastic, outgoing and all around an amazing human being. His fellow Arrowhead Interagency Hotshots would say he was a great leader who was an iconic Hotshot and was more than just a friend, he was a brother, mentor, and motivator. Brian tragically passed away in the line of duty on July 29, 2018 while battling the Ferguson Fire in Mariposa County. He is survived by his parents, sister, and fiancé who is 3 months pregnant with their first child, as well as their 2 dogs Zephyr and Taco. He was excited and nervous to be a father and would go around asking the other fathers on the crew for some fatherly advice. He loved Paige and his family very much. Brian is a hero who not only gave his life fighting fires but gave back to our country by saving lives and property countless times through his 15 year career. Brian worked all around the country doing what he loved, Alaska Fire Service, Monterey Hand Crew, Rosevelt Hotshots, Midnight Sons Hotshots, and the Larimer County Yellow Jackets to name a few. The Arrowhead family would now like to ask the community to come together to help support his family. All donations will be given directly to his Fiancé Paige and their unborn child to help with anything they might need in their future.
