Brian was a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and his number one team was the Nebraska Cornhuskers. He loved having barbecues and inviting family and friends. Later on in his life, he loved seeing and spending time with his grandkids. Brian loved his family.

Brian was preceded in death by his brother, Franklin O’Dell Hester Jr. and his mother, Marjorie Ellen Ravers.
