Brian Joseph Gurule was born in Lamar CO June 18, 1992 and departed this life on December 4, 2020. Brian was always a very fun, loving happy kid.
At a very young age he always loved cooking and baking with his Nana especially Sunday Family Dinners. He attended Lincoln Elementary and was a very active student; he participated in many school activities including plays, student council, and choir and was rewarded for being the highest salesman of their annual fundraiser.
Most days you could find Brian running around with his big brother and all the neighborhood kid’s playing games till dark. He also loved being at the farm with cousins and helping with anything that was being done even daily chores, he loved animals of all kinds and often thought he lived in the country with all the strays he would bring home. Brian also enjoyed playing sports mostly for fun but was competitive in football through high school. He was an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan and cheered them on every game bringing many fun arguments between family and friends especially the Denver games. He was so ecstatic when they finally won the Super Bowl earlier this year.
Brian loved everything about the outdoors. He loved to visit family in the New Mexico mountains where he his brother and cousins would disappear for hours to hike, fish, play, go bear chasing and to just hang out.

Many stories include him, his brother and two cousins creating ways to make life a little more interesting or pulling shenanigans together. He was an active 4H and FFA member that showed pigs in the county fair. His first job was always helping others with livestock pens and fencing that needed built or repaired. Brian’s favorite job in the World was being an Uncle, his favorite employment was working on the pipeline, when away he would always contact mom to tell her about his days and the awesome crew that he worked with the “Wolf Pack” as they called themselves always howling and trying to enjoy their time away from home.
