Family of Brian Melvin Brass want to share some of what he enjoyed during his life here. Brian has always had a smile on his face, he was willing to help out in the community and he volunteered his time in all events and took pride in doing it. Brian was always visiting outside the gas bar, where he loved chatting with everyone. He is sure going to be missed by those that enjoyed his company.
He also loved spending quality time with his siblings, step mom Mary and other family. We will miss him popping by for a visit, even if it was just “What you doing” quick cup of coffee or pepsi and a smoke.
Brian worked in many different areas during his life, he was proud he helped build our community hall, one of his great accomplishment with Gary Torfeson and the boys.
We all have fond memoirs of little Brian, so much to share, we could go on and on. But now we can share all those memories together, because that is what he would want.
So, lets all remember our brother, cousin, uncle, son, nephew, father, friend and god father. Brian was well known by those who knew him, they will miss and they loved him dearly.

DON’T CRY FOR ME
Don’t cry for me, I will be okay.
Heaven is my home now, and this is where I’ll stay.
Don’t cry for me. I’m where I belong.
I want you to be happy and try to stay strong.
Don’t cry for me. It was just my time,
But I will see you someday on the other side.
Don’t cry for me. I am not alone.
The angels are with me to welcome me home.
Don’t cry for me, for I have no fear.
All my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears.
Don't Cry for me. This is not the end.
I’ll be waiting here for you when we meet again.
