Brian and David were two of my best friends and great Fraternity Brothers. Brian had a great sense of humor and was always fun to be around. Rest in Peace.

Our friendship. thoughts and love to the Ranum family. Memories of Brian will always be with me as a teammate, fraternity brother and over all great man. Both Brian and Dave's character stood out above all. They will always be remembered.

Chris and family, I knew Brian as an upperclassman at Park Hill High School. I remember him being on the basketball team . He was a down to earth guy who was very kind. and proud to be a Trojan. Now that I look back on it.... I wish I would have know him better. Bless you and your family.

Chris, Courtney, and Tina, I am so sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. My memories of Brian as a child on our many treasured trips to Missouri to see our cousins all include his sweet, always kind smile. Even though I was much younger than him and probably a pest, he was always so nice to me! I pray that your memories and the love of Jesus will carry you all through this time. Love you all.
