He attended Westport schools, from kindergarten to his graduation from Staples High School in 1967. He was active in Little League baseball for many years, and loved the outdoors that was available in Westport. He also attended Camp Mahackeno for many summers and loved it.

He went on to work for the Post Office in Westport for a number of years.

Brian later moved to Cape Cod, which he loved, and spent many years there. He had his own company for many years, a paper-shedding company for all important papers. He was happy to live on Cape Cod. He found home there. 

He leaves behind, in great sorrow, sisters Deborah MacGilmore of Palm Coast, Fla., and Maggie of Vermont; a beloved son, Jesse Gilmore of Louisiana; his dear and wonderful friend, Sonya Macdonald of Cape Cod, and most of all his buddy, his cat, Scrapper.
