Brian Guilbert was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was a happy baby and his joyful nature continued throughout his life. His bright smile had a way of bringing joy to everyone around him. His Spanglish and playful expressions kept everyone laughing. You could hardly stay mad at him. Brian had a big heart. The love between him and his brother Christian was incomparable. As kids they played video games, rode bikes and teased each other. They still enjoyed time together bonding or just decompressing as they grew older. He also had a special bond with his mother. As a dear son, he often worried about her and went out of his way to make sure she had whatever she needed. Throughout childhood and into his adult life he enjoyed close friendships. Above all he loved being with family. To his cousin Jennifer he was “Mi sonrisa bella.” His nieces and nephew love the attention their “tio” gave them.
Brian enjoyed singing. basketball and baseball. He played at Felix Mantilla and on the varsity team at Hamilton High School. He had fun playing pool, midnight bowling and was always the wined at beer pong. He worked as a pharmacy assistant, a mover and most recently in home construction. He had some rough times over the years but got himself together.
He was a proud and loving father. In his final days he was anticipating the arrival of his second son.
We say farewell to Brian at an unexpected time but knowing that he is in a place without pain and sorrow brings some comfort. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his mother Hilda Garcia, father Peter Guilbert, brother Christian Guilbert, son Brian Guilbert Jr., fiancée Lynette Kowalik and their unborn son, grandparents Antonio Garcia, Sarahil Maldonado, Ana M. Barbosa and Jesus A. Guilbert and many cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and friends.
