Obituary of Brian M. Sidney-Smith
It is with profound sadness that we share the loss of Brian M. Sidney-Smith on Thursday, October 6th, 2022 at the age of 39. He was predeceased by his father, Desmond (Desi), his brother, Corey and his mother, Carolyn. He is survived by an aunt, Patricia, and his “Chosen Family”, who already miss his boisterous laugh.
Born in Rochester, NY, it’s no surprise that Brian was an avid hockey player and life-long fan of the Buffalo Sabres & Bills. He graduated from The Aquinas Institute of Rochester in 2001. Brian was a proud Alumnus of St. Bonaventure University, earning his BBA and MBA in 2005 and 2006. He played Club Hockey at Bonas, which his father and friends enjoyed visiting to watch him play. After Brian graduated from Bonas, he worked for GE in sales, a job he was tremendously proud of, and most recently with G.L. Huyett. Brian was a hard-worker, loved cars, golf and time with his friends. He played men’s hockey locally as a proud member of the Gator Cats. Aside from his accomplishments professionally, Brian was proud to be “Uncle Bri” to the “Chosen Family’s” children and was always an extraordinary friend to those around him.
