An incredible guy what would give you the shirt off his back!! When I first got my boat I thought I blew my trans so needless to say I got on OSO and started asking questions because I didn't now a thing...he responded immediately and offered to come down to the harbor and look at it for me (i didn't know him at all) he spent 4hrs working on it on a beautiful saturday afternoon when he could have been doing something else! I offered him some cash for his time but he wouldn't accept it and just said if you see somebody in trouble on the water just help them if you can...that's how you repay me!!! Needless to say that started our friendship and introduction into the group that is know as "Bad Influence Offshore" here in Chicago. I owe him for not only being a good friend but also for introducing me to others here that I consider very close friends as well.

Thanks BMiller you will be missed Buddy!

Still tough to believe. Life is too short, especially for this 37 year old who had a lot to offer the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We are going to miss you but have a lot of great memories to hang on to!!!!! Hammer

R.I.P. Brian. You were always the life of the party nomatter where we were at, and guys like you will be always remembered in a special way. One of the most generous guys anyone would ever meet. You will be missed greatly by all of us.
