Brian was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and moved to Des Moines at the age of 4. He attended Windsor Day School, Wentworth Military Academy and graduated from North High School and Emmaus Bible College. He served as a medic in Okinawa in the US Army.
Brian was a longtime member of the Gideon’s International, Men’s Garden Club of Des Moines and a charter and founding member of Christics (a vibrant singles ministry throughout the greater Des Moines area). He was also a member of First Federated Church.
