My condolences to The Pettis Family. I have fond memories of Brian, Gary Vaughn & I hanging out together when we were younger.
I had a chance to see Brian in 2014. He looked great. He was smiling & seemed happy. I was sad to hear that he was ill. I am sad to hear of his passing. May you all find comfort in GODS embrace. RIH

Brian was a good guy. I met him when I worked at Speedway. He would always come in and help me restock and clean. He like to tell me jokes. I will miss seeing him on his bike. He was a good friend.

RIP Brian. We attended 3rd grade together at Pearson. We played ball together and you were always the best of athletes. I had not spoken with you for many years, but you always remembered me when we did. I cherish the memories.
