December 11 1956 February 7 2020
Frederick Joseph Brian (Rick) passed away suddenly on February 7, 2020. Rick was born December 11, 1956 to Joseph and Virginia (Gill) Brian in Providence RI. Rick is survived by his wife, Leslie (Clegg), father, Joseph Brian, sisters, Carol Brian Capporelli and Wynne Brian and brother, Jeff Brian. Father-in-law Robert Coulter, Sr, sisters-in-law Linda Jamison and Stacey Es and brother-in-laws RJ Coulter and Stephen Clegg and many nieces and nephews. Rick received advanced degrees from Brown and Columbia Universities. He also studied at the London School of Business. He was exceptionally bright and well learned. Rick spent his career working with his childhood friend, Bob Picerne at Picerne Real Estate Group, until his death. Rick traveled the world and his wonder lust was apparent with his preponderance of stories of his travels. Rick made so many wonderful memories boating, fishing, skiing and enjoying life. He loved the water: the bays, coves, sounds, rivers and oceans. Rick was at peace there. He had many wonderful memories of Sachem in which he and Leslie, lived, loved and laughed aboard. He also loved his four-legged family members and although the list goes on, he notably enjoyed Abner and Gladys, who now chase the balls he throws. He also adored Eve, who stands watch over and protects his loving wife, Leslie. Rick was his own person. Clearly, a slave to fashion as he would never be seen without a heavily starched collared shirt, neatly pleated khaki pants and meticulously polished two tone leather loafers. Rick will be sorely missed. Please join Leslie and her family and friends in a tribute to Rick at the Pelican Yacht Club on Wednesday, February 12th. Receiving at 10:00am and a Celebration of Life at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
