Brain was the rock of his family. He was a kind and thoughtful man who had an outstanding personality. He played the guitar beautifully and was an avid Widespread Panic fan. Our hearts will be heavy with loss for a very long time, but we will remember that someone so special will never be forgotten because when someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

He is survived by his parents, Larry and Dee Bartram; a sister, Julie Todd; two nephews he adored, Seth and Ethan Grondin; along with aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Brian’s life will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, 836 Poquoson Ave., Poquoson. Please come honor him with your presence and to share your memories of his life adventures and misadventures with his family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Brian’s name to the Poquoson Volunteer Fire and Rescue, P.O. Box 2099, Poquoson, VA, 23662.
