From 1968 to 1972, Brian served in the US Marine Corps in aviation and communication repair, stationed in Okinawa during the Vietnam War.  Upon his return, he worked at Osram-Sylvania as an electrician for 37 years, retiring in 2013.  Brian had many hobbies and interests; many of which included the outdoors.  He also enjoyed hunting, model airplanes and especially the annual family canoe trip.  He was a talented craftsman and built his own home.

In addition to his parents, Brian was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy Urbanik Tracy, in 2003.

I was sorry to hear of Brian's passing. He was very dependable as a valuable employee of our maintenance crew at Sylvania. He was one of my best hires and I knew I could always count on him.
