Brian was born in St. Cloud to George & Helen (Studniski) Brix. He married Anne Konz on October 2, 1982 at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Pearl Lake. He attended technical college to be a lineman after high school but instead took over the family farm in Avon and later farmed in Albany. In addition to farming he owned an excavating business for decades. He is a member of St. Benedict’s Catholic Church in Avon.
Brian was a hard-working family man who took an active interest in his community. He served on the Board of Directors at the Central Livestock Association as well as the Minnesota Simmental Association. He served on the Avon Township Planning Board for 15 years. Brian enjoyed hunting, fishing, watching western shows, and spending time with his family. He was a skilled storyteller and liked to chew the fat, literally and figuratively. He especially enjoyed the time he spent with his grandchildren looking through tractor books, giving golf cart rides, and sneaking them Starburst and licorice. He was a man of integrity and honesty, and he took pride in a job well done.
He is survived by his wife, Anne of Albany; children, Brady (Sandy) of Albany, Amy of St. Cloud, and Adam (Leah) of St. Cloud; sister, Jean Shepherd of Avon; grandchildren, Cory, Brooklyn, Phillip, Peter, Kathryn, Blaise as well as one more on the way; and 13 brothers- and sisters-in-law.
He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Ryan (April 25, 1991); sisters, Mary, Marlene, Inez, and brother, George.
