  2. The Justice family

    My sincere condolences to the family of Brian in this difficult time. It is a sad day for the Bshop Hartley family.

  3. To the Williams family: I'm very sorry to hear about Brian's passing and may God's blessings keep you uplifted and strong as you go through your grieving.

    I'm a 1976 graduate of West High School and I have many fond memories of watching Brian play for South HS and he was definitely one of the greatest basketball players to come out of the state of Ohio. Again, God bless you all.
