    I literally grew up with Brian. If I looked back through all of my grade school class pictures, I believe we were always in the same class. From Kindergarten until High School. After High School there were many nights of hanging out with Brian, Scott Witzel, Jason Tangerose and many more. You all know who you are. We have gained another angel to look over us. Brian was always so excited and happy when I would run into him. I think the last time I saw him was my Father’s funeral and he was very concerned about his Mother’s health. She had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and that was in 2013. He told me he didn’t know what he would do if he lost his Mother. My heart is literally breaking for Cathy and Clair. Nobody should outlive their children. Prayers are being sent and I hope his son knows how great of a Father he had. Much love sent to the Lutz family during this time. Xoxo
