I never knew Brian but he was a great friend to my younger siblings in my family and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him or knew of him.
From what I have been told Brian was a friend to everyone and made sure to treat people as such. He was considered a genius musically and pushed band members at BVN to become the best that they could be. That is rare to find nowadays in a "me first" world.
Here is a quote from one of his best friends.
"It's hard to but the legend of who is Brian Boyd in to words Other than everyone who spent any time with him gained a friend. It's just hard knowing how invincible he had been going through a lot of rough times and always coming out on top with a grin. He was too wreck less and never wore his seatbelt which came back to haunt him."
