Brian, you were everything to me and I can't believe you are gone. Janet, Robert, Chris & Jamie - how deeply saddened I am for you all. I will think of him every day, for always.
Brian, May you rest in peace; you taught me plenty and will not be forgotten.
Brian...you brought so much love and laughter into my life at a time when I desperately needed it. We dated for a short three months about fourteen years ago, but I have very fond memories of our time together. You were the first man (besides my father) who treated me really well. You made me feel like a princess and helped me to truly "raise the bar" in my life. I wish we hadn't lost touch over the years. I will never forget you...XO
My heart felt sympathies go out to all in Brian's life. He taught me how to have a good laugh and work hard. I know he is loved and will be missed by myself and many others and will be thought of often.
Brian and I had a lot of good times together. You have left an impact on all the lives you have touched. You will be missed by us all. RIP Brian

To the DePolo family: I met Brian through a friend of mine, Brad Emond about 5 or more years ago in Toronto. I considered him a very likeable and considerate person. I am saddened by this news and would like to express my deep condolences to his entire family. Yours truly, Peter

Our condolences to the DePolo family. We remember Brian as always smiling, happy and fun to be around. The world is a sadder place without him.
Through the season's of our life we meet people who touch us deeply. Brian left a deep mark on my heart. There are many happy memories that I have of Brian.... 1. that smile 2. He always smelled good. 3. He gave great hugs. 4. Nachos! Each chip had the same ingredient to ensure the ultimate experience. With stelle artois to wash them down. 5. He took pride in his work. Brian worked hard and had received awards. He was very proud. 6. He looked great in the standard tie and white shirt. When he added that suite coat, watch out! :) 7. His voice. That voice had both confidence and leadership. 8. his laugh, we all know that laugh. 9. he loved his neices and nephew, he could chase them around like a big goofy kid! Now that was funny :) 10. His personality. That's what won me over and I will miss it so much. Good bye Brian, I know you are at peace. I will see you again some day. Have fun,laugh smile and know that you are missed so dearly down here.
My condolences to Brian's family and friends. Brian you have left a lasting impression to so many. You will be missed my friend. RIP Brian.
My deepest heart felt condolences go out to the DePolo Family in their loss of Brian. I was saddened when I heard about Brian's passing. I lost contact with him years ago, but I will always remember his infectious laughter and humor when we all spent time at our favorite hangout on Wednesday nights and our yearly rafting trips. The world could use more people like him. RIP my friend
I knew Brian through mutual friends Mike and Dave Lake. And I informed Brian of Mike's own passing, when I visited Brian to buy some Mopar parts from him last summer. Brian was very sad to hear of Mike's death....and now I am shocked and saddened to learn of Brian's death. I didn't know Brian all that well, but for the time I did know him, I knew he was a great person, a good friend, and had a funny sense of humor! I just can't believe Brian is gone now too. I send my heartfelt and deepest sympathy to Brian's entire family...May he rest peacefully. I'll miss you Brian...you were one of the GOOD GUYS!

Thinking of you today.
BC………… Baby, 25 years ago WE started a story you and I, you were such a gift…… Shocked and saddened are words that cannot even begin to express how I felt when I read this (9 days ago)….. 5-10-88 We celebrated your 22 birthday with your Mom – your favorite fondue, and your baseball game near CJ Barrymore’s and that long ride home…. The beginning of a very pure, young, passionate story – though our time together was short back in 88 and 89, BC your impact on my life was more, than the greatest authors could write. I always felt we might meet again and maybe then I could tell you that………I never felt safer than when I was in your arms……never have I felt a love so pure than what we shared….. BC where did our yesterday’s go? You were strong, generous, warm, your laugh infectious, your soul sweet and you were so very, very humble….. You must have remained that way because HE only takes the greatest, those who have learned, those who have earned…. Not in a million years would anyone think, YOU would be gone so very young…… My heart has been broken for you twice in this lifetime and an emptiness has settled in my soul. I wish more than anything that we could re-live this day your birthday 25 years ago – not to re-write history, but to really live in that moment (take in every second), of falling, of pureness and innocence…. There are so many memories of great times with you, your family…. 4-8-88 Jagger’s, 5-27-88 Memorial Day ☺, that day in June, you stood by me when I had to tell my parents the worst news about my brother and how you stayed by my side (can never, will never forget )- July 4th in Lexington and on and on… 12- 23-1988 was the greatest start to what we thought would be forever. Never will I forget you and pray that you now have the answers so many of us search for. “Love is all around you, love is knockin’ outside your door, waiting for you is a love built just for two,,,,,,,cuz I know”. One can only hope that we be gifted with your presence again, some day……Thank you and may you be at peace knowing what you meant and how you’ve touched others………………
