A loving husband, wonderful father, best friend. While these words are accurate, they cannot begin to describe the man that Brian Warner was. He was a genuinely nice person, and he cared about everyone. He’s one of the few people I know who still stopped to help strangers on the side of the road. He got along with almost everyone, and once he called you “friend” it was for life and he would do anything for you. As a husband and father, a friend of mine called him a “role model for all men”. To me, he was truly my life partner. We did everything together – working on his classic 1969 Firebird convertible, planting a vegetable garden, tickling our 3-year old son (and each other!), and planning for our future. After almost 13 years together, he still left me love notes, always bought me more than one card for special occasions (because he liked seeing me find them), and would call me just to say hello. He worked for eSpeed for exactly one year (start date: 9-11-2000).
My last memories of Brian are seeing him give our infant daughter a bottle after dinner on Monday, September 10th. She stared up at him and his eyes sparkled with joy as he looked at her – it was wonderful to watch. The next morning, as I drifted back to sleep after a 5am feeding, Brian kissed me goodbye as he left for work. That was the last time I saw him.
We love you and miss you Brian.
