Brian Andrew Drake

An Extraordinary Life 

"Every man’s life ends the same way and it is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguishes one man from another.” Ernest Hemingway

Brian was born May 29, 1980 and experienced more in his 33 years than most do in a lifetime. 

Brian was a man of unshakable principles and one who approached all he did with enjoyable abandon. He was an expert in martial arts, software development, music composition, filmmaking, skydiving and the extreme sport of wingsuit flying. He demonstrated a determined faith, and an expressive gratitude to the Creator of the beauty surrounding him, a beauty that drew him into a life of adventure. He left an indelible impression on all who knew him. 

He was resolutely committed to knowing Jesus, God in the flesh and the source of all truth. On April 2, 2014, he went to spend eternity with the God who cared for him, guided him, and captured his imagination and his heart. We look forward to joining him someday. 

In the meantime, we miss him very much.
