Brian Michael Guerin

Birth Date: January 22, 1986
Death Date: November 2, 2016

Our loving son, brother and friend returned home to our heavenly father unexpectedly on November 2, 2016. Brian Michael Guerin was born on January 21, 1986 in Oakland California. Brian attended San Lorenzo High School in San Lorenzo California and joined the United States Air Force upon graduating.

Brian successfully completed his basic training at Fort Sam Houston, Texas where he received the Command Sergeant Major’s award for ‘Most Improved Airman’ as a result of his hard work and desire to be the best at everything he pursued. Upon completion of his initial training he was subsequently selected to attend a highly technical advanced course of instruction to become a certified Aerospace and Operational Physiologist. Brian successfully completed this intense course of instruction and was later assigned to the Aerospace Command at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia where he served honorably including a tour of duty in the Middle East (Kuwait). Brian was Honorably discharged on August 21, 2010.

Upon completion of his military service Brian continued to advance his formal education and attended California State University Hayward and California Poly Pomona (Archi Acres Institute for Sustainable Agriculture) where he developed an interest in environmental studies and received his certification in Organic Hydroponic Farming Techniques.

Brian will be missed and leaves to cherish his memory his mother Betty, father Conny, brothers Brandon, Jarrell (Wife Angelic), and Jerome (Wife Antoinette), sister Élan (Husband Jay), and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.

  1. Just heard about this the other day, the news hit me like a freight train. When I moved to California in 98, I knew no one and really needed a friend. I was sent the best friend that a human being could ask for. I literally do not know how anyone could've been a better friend to me than Brian was. We became close right away.

    Our love for pro wrestling bonded us. Often we would act out what we saw, with him being Stone Cold Steve Austin (his favorite wrestler) and me being either Bret Hart (my favorite wrestler) or "LeShawn Michaels". We even came up with a match for us to perform at our school's talent show.

    Quoting movies was another favorite pastime of ours. We could do that for hours. Another thing we could do for hours was laugh at each other's jokes. Brian was one of the funniest people I've ever known. Many times we would annoy Brian's Mom with our incessant "cackling". We could have so much fun while doing absolutely nothing. Those were some of the best times I've ever had, in Brian's room or the kitchen on Monticello Ave was one of my favorite places to be.

    It was on Monticello Ave that I met Brian's Brother, Brandon. Who I would have a great relationship with as well. The Guerin's are an incredible family, and one that I'm honored to know and get close with.

    Even though we didn't talk as much after his stint in the service, I still missed him and looked forward to the day where we'd catch up and get back to the way we were. It breaks my heart into many many pieces to know that we won't be able to do that.

    Brian, my friend, my brother, I love you man. Damn I'm going to miss you.

    To the Guerins, thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and including me on some many trips and fun outings.

  2. Brian, those high school days of you, me, Nate, and Marcus all hanging at the gazebo and talking about wrestling and other stuff were good times. The four of us were truly some of the best of friends. I salute you my fellow Air Force brother and may you find peace on the other side. You'll never be forgotten.

  3. I met Brian in our Freshman year of High School at San Lorenzo and we instantly clicked, sharing a class every semester and every year beyond that, and became the best of friends all throughout school and into our early adult years. While him and I lost contact after his deployment, I had always considered him my brother and my best friend. I could write a short book on all of the memories him and I have shared over the years.

    Brian was always so genuine and authentic with who he was as a man, his laugh was contagious, his smile made you feel better about life, and his heart was enough to make you feel loved and welcomed no matter who you were. He played a huge role in my life and his company was always cherished, though I will miss him greatly and I wish I could've been there for him in his harder days, as I too understand the pain that darkness can bring…but no matter what mistakes he might've made or whatever flaws he might've possessed, I am SO proud of Brian in so many ways, and it's an honor to have known him, let alone be called his "best friend" and even more so, his "brother".

    On behalf of everyone from San Lorenzo High, especially the Class of 2004, we love you Brian and we will miss you so much, but know that we are all extremely proud of you and the things you accomplished in your life.

    Our prayers and our hearts are with the family more than you know.

    Rest in peace, brother. I love you.

  4. Uncle, your smile and Spiderman pajamas are my fondest memories of you. I'm proud to say I had such an intelligent, handsome guy for an uncle.

    Love you. See you later:purple_heart:

  5. Brian, my handsome intelligent little brother. We will miss u but God needed you more. No more pain and suffering. Thank you for being a light in your parents eyes. For your infectious laugh, and your studious verbiage. We love u lil brother see you on the other side!!
