Brian J. Mcbriar

November 10, 1970 — September 30, 2021

Brian J. McBriar, age 50, lost his 7-month battle with a Glioblastoma brain tumor on Thursday, September 30th, 2021 at home surrounded by his loving family.
He was born to Neil and Karen (Trochinski) McBriar on November 10th, 1970, in Berlin, WI.
Brian played baseball and football for four years at Oshkosh West High School. He obtained his Journeyman’s degree in welding and metal fabrication from Fox Valley Technical College, and later earned his Certified Welders Inspector License. He worked at Basic American Metal Products and most recently as a welder and fabricator at SMC. Brian jokingly would say he retired from SMC in February of 2021.
Brian married the love of his life, Lori Lemiesz, on April 24th, 1993. Together they had two children, Emily, and Michael, whom he loved and was very proud of.
Brian coached the kids in sports from the dugout to the stands. He enjoyed all sporting events when the kids were growing up. Baseball was his favorite sport but was a big fan of the Pittsburg Steelers.
Brian loved spending time with his family and friends, especially with his grandson Liam. He enjoyed game nights, ax throwing, bags, goose hunting, and thirsty Thursday.
Brian is survived by his loving wife, Lori; children, Emily (Jon) and Michael; grandson, Liam; mother, Karen (Ward) Newell; sister, Wendy (Eric); two nephews, Brady, and Jacob. He is further survived by his stepmother, Donna McBriar; his mother and father-in-law, Vicky and Butch Lemiesz, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is also survived by his three dogs: Bentley, Stella, and Remington.
Brian was preceded in death by his father, Neil McBriar; his grandparents, Neil (Marion) McBriar and Marceela (Carl) Trochinski.
A service for Brian will be held at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Homes westside (100 Lake Pointe Dr) on Thursday, October 7th, 2021, at 8PM. A visitation will be held from 4PM until the time of service.
