Jenny and all of Brian's loved ones: I worked with Brian at US Cellular from 2010-2013. Actually, he was one of the interview team who hired me, and was always a great support and friend to me at work. We also sat next to each other for more than a year over a cube wall. You can tell a lot about a man by how he speaks of his loved ones, and he spoke so very lovingly about Jenny and his kids. As a single woman at the time, Brian gave me hope that there were actually good, kind, smart, funny men in the world. We laughed a lot. And when I left US Cellular he was one of the last people I said goodbye to. He was so full of life, and so generous of his time then that it's difficult to believe he is no longer in his physical body on earth. I hope the love he had for all of you is a comfort to you. He was one of the best people I've ever worked with, and one of the best people I've ever known.

I was a peer/friend of Brian's while we both worked at U.S. Cellular. We were both Rate Plan Managers at the same time (I was located in Knoxville). He was always one of the most knowledgeable and most respected voices in our organization. I would routinely bounce ideas off of him and greatly respected his intellect. I always thought Brian was the greatest and though we hadn't talked in some time, I always remember him fondly. My sincerest condolences, I will miss him.

I want to offer my sincere condolences to the Granstrom family. Brian and I worked closely together at the Itasca office for a few years and he was always a great teammate. We will miss you Brian.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
