Our kind, gentle, caring son and friend has left this earth too soon. Brian was born in Akron, OH in 1971. He attended Ellet High School and graduated from the University of Akron. Brian was a gifted graphic artist and entrepreneur. Brian will be deeply missed by his mother and step-father, Lynn and David Butz; grandmother, Mable Bennett; aunts, uncles and cousins, especially Travis and Emily Crain and Audra; and the Esker family who always gave Brian their love and support. He was deeply loved by his now deceased grandparents, Fred and Vernell Esker.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday March 7, 2018 from 6-8pm at Newcomer Funeral Home 131 N. Canton Rd. Akron, OH 44305.
