Life Story / Obituary


“Brian Alan Duley Bricker, age 34, passed away unexpectedly Sunday, March 21st peacefully in his home.

Brian was born July 29th, 1986 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to Tina Bricker and Robert Duley.

He was preceded in death by his father Robert Duley.

He is survived by his significant other and best friend of 13 years, Heather Johnston, their 10 year old son, Alex Johnston, mother Tina Bricker, brothers Dwayne Bricker, Mike Gilbault and sister Tonya Jones; his Uncle Carl, along with several other aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Brian was an amazing and proud father! Alex was his best friend and pride and joy. Brian had many passions in life including music, playing pool, and having fun with friends and family. He was also a self taught and highly skilled mechanic and handyman, able to fix just about anything! Brian was always goofing around, being silly, and making everyone around him laugh and enjoy life.

Brian has several friends for whom he has been a foundation for throughout their lives. He has made a lasting impact on everyone who knew him.

Brian will be continually missed, but we will celebrate his life forever!”
