    • Brian custom filled our fathers (Glenn & Elaine) silo for a number of years. I remember Brian as being so meticulous with his equipment and so focused on the task. Brian also filled a number of our neighbors silos and we would share labor. Broke bread many times at farm family tables with Brian. I will forever cherish growing up on a farm and having spent time with people like Brian.

      My condolences to you and your family.
