Brian was born to Terry Turnbull on February 23, 1978. He lived in Queen Creek, AZ as a child, then moved to Gilbert, AZ. Brian attended grade school at Burk Elementary in Gilbert, then attended Gilbert High School in Gilbert. Brian made many friends growing up and continued to keep in touch with them.
Brian chose to be in the food industry and has worked at several popular restaurants in the Mesa area. He loved to be around people and loved his job.
Brian had the honor of becoming a father to three beautiful children: Asia, Mason and London. His children were his life and he was their life. Brian would light up when he was with them, or talking about them. Brian enjoyed watching movies with his children; he would cover the living room floor with lots of comforters and pillows and make popcorn. He made his children feel good and they were always laughing together.
Brian had a love for music, movies and Dragon Ball Z. He loved cars, especially Hondas, and loved to roller blade. Brian loved to collect knives, hats and tools.
Six years ago Brian got brain cancer. He always kept a positive outlook and his motto was” Keep on Keepin’ on”. Brian fought his battle with much courage, and his strength came from those he loved the most: his children, his mom, and all of his family. He loved to see people happy; even though Brian was in pain, he would make sure to tell a joke or two. His wit and banter will long live on in our hearts.
Brian is survived by his three children, Asia, Mason and London; his mother, Terry Turnbull Jericho; his father, Robert Jericho; his sister, Mandy Jericho; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Brian, we love you to the moon and back.
