He is survived by his loving wife Sue McCarty and his four beautiful children; Charlotte, Will, Margo and Elise (and Bauer).

Born and raised in Larchmont, N.Y., Brian graduated from Iona Prep, attended University of Maryland and graduated from Iona College. He began his career in sales with the majority of it spent in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. He helped introduce new cancer screening testing into the women’s health market, which helped to decrease the number of deaths from cervical cancer. He was fortunate to be hired by Mayo Clinic in 2018 and spent the remainder of his career with them, where he sold neurology testing to hospitals in the state of Conn.
Along with his career in sales, he held a second job as coach of local youth sports as his children were growing. He spent six years on the Mamaroneck Youth Hockey board where he coached every age group during his time there, from Mites through Midgets. He was happy to share his love of hockey with the area kids. While none of his players made it to the pros, he was always happy to see a former player join in the local adult leagues as they returned home from college. He also helped coach youth baseball, softball, and CYO basketball.
Brian was a proud member of the local volunteer fire service. He was a member of the Larchmont Fire Department from 1989 to 2007, where he held the rank of Chief of Department from 2001 to 2004. He was a devoted member of the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department from 2007 until his passing. He loved the sense of community of both departments, and in learning and sharing his knowledge of the fire service with the newer members.
He enjoyed spending his weekend down time with family and friends at home, the Larchmont Shore Club, and at their family house in Block Island, RI. They would spend time there each summer enjoying the beaches, fishing, swimming, and getting some work done on the house.
Brian’s celebration of life was be held at Larchmont Shore Club on Wednesday November 16, and a funeral mass was held at St. Augustine’s on Thursday, November 17. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his honor to the Town of Mamaroneck Fire Department and the Ray Pfeifer Foundation.
