Brian passed away peacefully at home with his loving family by his side.
Brian was born in Plantation, Florida, the only child of Dave and Joann Smith. He spent his early childhood in Florida before moving to Wisconsin. He went to school in Wisconsin Rapids and then attended UWSP and UWGB.
Brian is survived by his loving parents and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He will be remembered for his infectious smile, sense of humor and ability to talk to everyone. He was the “Ideas Guy” who shared his ideas with so many hoping to improve things without taking any credit for his suggestions.
Brian loved listening to and playing music and sharing it with friends. Over the years, he enjoyed all his time spent with family and friends in cars, trucks, Corvettes, motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs and personal watercraft.
His amazing talents and attention to detail enabled him to work in a variety of fields, including on-air disc jockey, banking services, sales, website development, public relations, communications and marketing services, along with supporting the fun products offered by Bombardier Recreational Products. He held a wide variety of positions and excelled at everything he did.
In his short 44 years, he had an amazing life traveling to many parts of the United States and Canada and creating many happy family memories.
Brian was preceded in death by his grandparents, Stanley and Mildred Glumac of Duluth, Minnesota and Edgar and Mary Smith of Proctor, Minnesota.
Friends and family are invited to attend a Memorial Service and Celebration of Brian’s life on Saturday, November 10, 2018. Visitation from 4:00 - 6:00 pm with a service beginning at 6:00 pm at Brainard Funeral Home in Weston.
The family would like to thank so many of the staff at Aspirus, Wausau for their friendship and caring. Brian brought smiles to them with his humor, stories and knowledge, but they all touched his life in so many ways and he was so appreciative of their friendships and amazing care.
