In Loving Memory
What an awesome way to exlpian this-now I know everything!
Fell out of bed feeilng down. This has brightened my day!
From all of us, past and present, we send our deepest sympathies for Brian's untimely passing. He was a great man and an inspiration to all of those who knew him. Unfortunately our office will not be able to attend his memorial but as previously discussed we will sit down and devise an appropriate memorial to be displayed in front of our offices. Sincerely, Lou, Dom, and all of us at Dewey's

Years ago, Brian was a memorable visitor to the Salt Lake City Library from his office across the street. As a reference librarian at the information desk, I remember him as intelligent and affable. I greatly admired his contrarian views and strong sense of social justice. He had great integrity, and gave a strong voice to good causes. I am saddened that he is no longer with us, but Utah is a better place because of his work.

I did not personally know Brian, but I always followed his cases in the paper and raised my fist in triumph, every time he won for the downtrodden, the oppressed and the forgotten. A giant of a man, and a hero for me. Janet O'Neill

Our condolences to Brian's family and those who cared about him. We did not know him well, but appreciated his fairness as a landlord. I never got to thank him for the pear tree trimming he arranged this spring, as I'm sure it had something to do with how delicious the pears have been. So, thanks Brian! Malia and Heather
Mr. Barnard contacted me in the '80's as I was trying to have a march on the Uof U campus to make people aware of pound seizure and vivisection that was occuring there. The Uof U denied me a march even though I was a senior there. Mr. Barnard wrote a letter on my behalf and the march was a success. Thank Mr. Barnard for always standing up for what is right. I will never forget what you did for me and for the animals that day. Dawn Sullivan Bluffdale, Ut
My condolences to Brian's family, friends and coworkers. It was an honor and a pleasure to have worked with Brian on the Utah Cross case and to have known him for many years through his working with American Atheists. Very few people are as caring and dedicated to improving the lives of others and upholding our Constitutional rights as Brian was. Brian was always a kind and genial man; just a wonderful person to be acquainted with. He was a great American and I'm so saddened by his death.
The Gadfly I feel a void, a vacuum, an emptiness, a sadness. Once I shook his hand and thanked him, but it was one of many. I wanted it to be special. I wanted him to know how heartfelt MY thanks was. So did the many others. I hope he realized how admired and appreciated he was, and that it wasn't just superficial. And now that he has gone who will stand up for the poor and marginalized against the excessive reach of the privileged and sanctified? Who will fill the void? Joe Watts One of Many
Brian was a wonderful man and lawyer. I admired him enormously. My father, John O'Brien was a client and friend of Brian's and introduced me to him when I needed to some legal guidance. Brian was an incredible man and the world is a better place because of him and his work. Thank you for everything you did for me dear Brian. Rest well.
