"I knew Brian from attending the club myself and later through working with him and his commitment, dedication and enthusiasm shone through in everything he did. 

"He will be sadly missed by all who remember him from the club and all those who worked with him and whom he helped over the years. 

"My thoughts and sympathies are with his family, friends, loved ones and all associated with the Long Tower Youth and Community Centre."
