Sharing in your sadness as you remember Brian. My prayers of strength to all of you. Brian is an Angel given to your family, he was able to fulfill his mission when he successfully created each of you unique and wonderful.

Thank you Brian for sharing many of your gifts. For many years at Misericordia/Angel Guardian where we met and through your years of performing at Loyola Academy with your choir, or attending athletic events, I always wanted to present you with literature about your experiences. Rest In Peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Our prayers go out to the Connolly clan for God’s grace and peace as they mourn the loss of Brian. I had the honor of accompanying Brian and his brother Hugh to the auto show one year. We had a great time helping Brian collect marketing materials for the cars, and we even met Mike Ditka (who Brian already knew). Brian loved to love. A true gift to have known him if only for a short time. Godspeed Brian . . . Love, Bill

In loving memory of my Uncle Brian. You never failed to brighten my day. I will never forget walking that 5K together in San Diego, dancing in the living room, going to the movies, shopping at Costco, drawing, checking out your architecture projects and listening to your radio. You taught me a great deal about life and will be missed. Love you always.

I will miss Brian dearly. I will never forget the love he had for his family and the passion for his Architecture projects. Without the need for many words, Brian taught me a great deal about life. I hope they have radios in heaven.
