  • Dale Robertson

    I am crushed… I just thought of Brian and went to look up his phone number after not seeing him for over 10 yrs after moving to CA. I will always remember our times from school days with Tim & friends then riding and getting stupid. One of my best friends ever… My love to Mom Dad Diane Amy & Kevin and rest of the family.

  • Frank and Rita Bursick

    Brian was always a friend of ours no matter what was going on he would be there to talk to.. He related to young people and old people the same -and was always concerned about how you were doing… He would ride with you wherever you wanted to go and would always be happy doing it..I think he was probably the most polite person I ever met!… Rest in peace Brian and I know for sure that you’re in a better place.

  • John Hines

    My deepest sympathy to Brian’s family
    Brian and I met through the love of loud motorcycles and ape hangers. First conversation we had was about the two and it was a great friendship every since. I’m gonna make a trip around North Park Lake tonight after your service, in your memory. Keep your bars high and the pipes loud until we meet again, my friend

    I’ve known Cookie since I was a little girl.
    He will be very much missed.

  • D. Zoe Shutka

    My dear friend… all the good times we have shared and the great memories we made, in all the years I’ve known you, are like TREASURES IN MY HEART. I will hold onto them and share them with all who we’re lucky enough to know you and some you never met. Your smile and little chuckle laugh will replay in my thoughts. The times we adventured on our steel horses, I felt honored to be on the road with such a righteous biker. I’m thankful that you made the effort so many times to come to my gatherings and meet new friends! You were there for some epic bonfires and Halloween parties!
    Anytime we were at Bike Night together, You always checked on me and made sure I was ok. At my jewelry stand, you stood by me sooo many times, keeping me company and helping me in anyway you could. You are a precious gem, so rare and valuable and irreplaceable. A true blue American in every aspect! Love to “My Buddy” I will never forget you my dear friend!


    Miss you brother. Will never forget your laugh, your smile, fun times & rides.
    It was an honor to know you. Full throttle through them pearly gates bro!!

    I have known my good friend Brian since I was 19, we are the same age, graduated from High School the same year, had similar interests, enjoyed the same music, and participated in the same activities!
    We had a chance encounter around the age of 12 when I was living in Ingomar and attended Ingomar Middle School in 7th grade, while Brian had attended Carson we met briefly at a football game. Seven years later we became great friends through our frequenting Roma’s and still living with our parents. One of our late night rondezvous I showed up at his parents home after working late and I woke up Brian’s mom, who was none to pleased 😳 ! We were very close friends and hung out all the time for many years! I remember those days fondly and how we made each laugh till it hurt!!! 🤣
    The past 20 years we had not seen much of each other but stayed in touch. I would get a call from Brian around the holidays every year after he would receive one of my silly little Christmas cards. Or if one of us was reminded of something from the past. To hear of his passing was such a shock I was in disbelief. This couldn’t be true he was my age, way too young !!! I miss him already. My sincere condolences to his family! Rest In Peace My Friend May Flights of Angels Sing Thee to Thy Rest

  • Jane E McConnell

  • Bill McIntosh

    Rest In Peace Brother….

  • Chuck Nash

    The world has lost a true original…I have been friends with the Cookster for a long time. Brian is one of those charismatic souls that you don’t forget. If you are on this page you already know this…

    He had a heart of gold and helped me through some very difficult times.
    I will always be grateful for his friendship.

    He made every event more fun…I always told him I felt like I was in a parade anytime I was with him as his rides were always head turners. Every where we went he knew someone…Cookie was a hard core biker in every sense of the word but he also was a great man and a terrific friend.

    You will be missed brother….love and prayers to the Cooke family…

  • Douglas Hixenbaugh

    Keep your wheels spinning and your pipes thundering. Until we ride again tear it up and keep them on their toes. Love you brother.

  • Bob Cain

    Please accept my deepest sympathy at this time. I’m am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May the Lord give you the strength you need to get through this.

  • Dean Hunkele

    Some of my best memories are from the times I spent with Brian. Looking for, planning on and assembling a bunch of looney toon buddies to ride out on adventures was Brian’s whole reason for being. So now he rides off to the ultimate gig. A place where his bike always fires, the sun always shines, the beers are cold, the hot wings are piled high and of course…pretty girls dancing to Rock and Roll. And those of us who loved him so much on earth will just have to wait till the day comes we get to ride with him again.

  • Loretta A Coffin (Berger)

    Kevin I am so very sorry to red about your brother. May you and all of your family cherish the memories you share.

  • Andrea Surgent

    Brian was my true friend and he will be missed WHAT A GREAT GUY- my thoughts and prayers for his family. It was a privilege to know him and have him as my friend.

  • Tammy Wittmer

    The memories of Brian are always cherished. From his attentiveness to his bike to the smiles he left everywhere he arrived on it, he was one true American “Savage” ( said in the positive sense of the expression). Just wish he could have staid around longer. May he be ride the thunder in heaven and be blessed until we meet again. Your wings were ready, ours were not yet.

  • Troy Landrey

    Its been years since we have seen eachother, but the memories of us together in the 80’s, will forever be cherished. Rest in piece Brian!!

  • Frank & Rita Bursick

    Brian was a really good friend and loved riding his bike and may his soul rest in peace amen

  • Jodie Snider

    To the Cooke family
    My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences on Brian’s passing. He always brought a smile to my face when we would run into each other. He was truly a stand-up guy and I am priud to have called him friend. I pray that Jesus Christ carry you thru this time of sorrow and lift your spirits high. I also pray that the Angels in Heaven trumpet Brian’s entry into the Kingdom of God.
    “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
    In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
    And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
    And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”

    Prayers for your family 🙏🙏
