A native of State Center, Brian graduated from West Marshall High School in 1972 and Iowa State University with a PhD in Higher Education Administration. He spent 27 years at Columbus State Community College and took pride in education. He was an admired mentor and a noted leader by all who knew him. He played a central role in creating numerous innovative student programs that remain his legacy to this day.
An avid baseball lover, Brian enjoyed coaching and watching as many games as he could. (Go Yankees!) He cherished being outdoors and found great joy in music. A prolific writer and journalist, he never missed a chance to share his passion for words through cards, notes, and encouragements.
The epitome of a family man, he wore his title “Girl-Dad” proudly! Spending time with his grandkids was something he treasured. Brian relished every opportunity to show up for those he loved. Whether it be a school event, birthday, or a simple phone conversation, he was always there.
Brian met his soul mate and partner in life, Ms. Diane Jones, in 2014 and has been devoted to her ever since. Brian and Diane’s true love shined through to everyone and gave light to all in their presence.
He will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.
