Brian will be deeply missed by his wife Gloria; daughters, Jennifer (Rudy) Wahlers, Julie (Chad) Merryman; sons, Douglas (Maggie) Hanson, and Dennis (Sandy) Hanson. Grandpa was so proud of his grandkids: Austin, Dustin (Rachel) Isaac, Abby, Daina, Drew, Samantha, Keeghan, Maggie, Karley, Rowan and Iris. He is also survived by his brother and best friend, Bruce (Pam) Simonson and sister Betty (Ken) Kolean along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, special loved ones, and his ever-faithful and loving dog, Cheyene.
Brian graduated from Saugatuck High School in 1969. He was employed at Lloyd J. Harris and Rich Products, JB Labs and Perrigo where he made countless life-long friends. He retired two years ago and daily would say “it was the best time of his life!”
