    Dear Weir family—my husband and I send our deepest sympathy. My daughter just sent us his obituary and we are saddened that we missed his memorial service. He was our dentist and was always very kind and provided quality service. May the Lord grant you His eternal peace and comfort.

  4. Brenda Stoltz

    Hi Judy, I just wanted to let you know that Brian was our dentist , and he was responsible for finding my husbands cancer. He actually called the doctor for a biopsy appointment. For this, I will be forever grateful. My husband is now an eight year cancer survivor. We send our deepest condolences.

  5. Jerry & Kathy Miller

    Brian's death leaves us with a heavy heart, for all his family and the many people he touched. He was our family's dentist since he first opened his practice in Menomonie. He took such unbelieveable care of our son in his teenage yrs after a fall out of a hay mow knocked out his front teeth. Such a kind man with a great skill aimed at nothing less than perfection, integrity, a kind heart and the most infectious laugh ever. He was not only our dentist, he was our friend. Rest peacefully, Brian....

    Brian has been my dentist for many years. He. Always called me coach not Terry. We got along great. He always knew that I had the option of having my teeth done in Mexico and we joked about it. How cheap it was compared to Wis. Enjoyed his guitar in church on Sundays and his wife singing. Sad but say hello to Franklin and Genny Petrie in Heaven they’ve been there a while and will show U around.. yes may have implant in Mexico.????. Hope that does not upset U. Rest In Peace friend in heaven????????????????????


    I was very saddened to hear that Brian passed away. He's been my dentist for many years. I always appreciated his kindness and patience with me. My heart hurts for you and your family. Brian will be greatly missed. Prayers ..

    I want to extend my deepest sympathy to Judy and family. Brian was my dentist for about thirty years and he sang in my Carnegie Hall concert a few years ago. I will greatly miss going to him as a patient--he was so very gifted in what he did in his practice, so articulate and of the highest integrity. On my last visit just a few weeks ago I told him that he ran a great dental office and that I greatly appreciated his work.
