James (Jim) Frederick Brian peacefully passed from this earth to be with the Lord on June 1, 2017. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Jim was 63 years old, born to William Ross and Wanda Elizabeth Brian, in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He graduated from Texas A&M University, College Station. He owned and operated Brian Service and Calibration and also enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at his property in Newton, Texas. He was very proud of, and loved being with his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Kathy Brian; his mother, Wanda Brian; daughter, Casey Hadley and husband Cliff, granddaughter Cailey and grandson Dade; son Kris Brian and granddaughter Kenna; son Shane Brian and wife Shelli, grandsons Aiden, Austin and Tanner, granddaughter Makayla; sisters Mary Jean Easley and husband Lynn, Ann Morris and husband Harry; brothers David Brian and wife Linda, and Bobby Brian; and a host of other family and friends.
Jim’s family would like to thank the multitude of doctors and staff who put forth the tremendous effort to care for him, especially those who appreciated his sense of humor.
A private family celebration of life service will be held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations may be made, in his honor, to a charity of your choice.
Time has come, and time has passed
On the shore of heaven you’ll be
Catching fish, and waiting for me
You’ve made me laugh, and made me mad
But no matter what, I’d want no other dad
Family will be all around, and comfort they’ll seek
