Brian F. Hand

Brian F. Hand, 51, left us unexpectedly Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010.

Brian traveled the world while serving in the Marines from 1976 to 1979. He loved the outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, bird watching and taking rides on his pontoon boat. He also enjoyed computers, model trains, taking photos and was an avid reader. But most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family.

He was the loving husband of Deb (nee Hartig); loving father of Shaun (JoAnna), Ryan (Ana) and Kristin (Tyler); and special grandpa of Madalyn. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Joyce Hartig; brother, Jim; sisters, Colleen (Martin), Terri and Laurie; brother-in-law, Brian (Lori) Hartig; and many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Dolores.

Visitation will take place from 4 p.m. until the 7 p.m. funeral service Monday, Nov. 1, at Church and Chapel Funeral Home, 380 W. Bluemound Road (at highways J and JJ, four blocks south of Interstate 94), Waukesha.
