Let me say this there was an arguement between him an his girlfriend over all the yahoos that try to live in that house they lived in. The cops went there and brian did not ask for a ride. I heard with his own mouth say that everything would be okay now because the riff raff left and he was sorry for taking up his time. He was laughing and joking with the officer for about 5 min after that. Then the cop left. His girlfriend didnt even looked worried when she found out it might of been him that got hit. She went in the house an went to bed... Thats all im going to say. RIP my man.

Has anyone EVER counted how many people have been killed or committed suicide in Watseka including those on that set of train tracks running through Watseka? The number is most likely astounding per capita for the population of that town!

If allyou nosey people have nothing better to do than gossip at least get the facts straight Brian was already dead when the train hit him the cornor did tell us that much he didnt' commit suicide over his girlfriend or anyone or thing .I know Brian wouldn't want people talking like this about him or so that his mother and family would have to hear about it so people please stop .Good things about Brain is fine or great memories you have of him but no more lies or gossip .

Wow really people. My uncle was one of the best men I have ever met. We werent the closest because our family is so huge, but I know in my heart he would never intentionally kill himself. He has two great kids and a grandchild he loved very much. I remember his huge smile and his funny jokes he always had. My uncle was one of the most outgoing people. Please dont talk badly of him, he was a great person.
I love you Uncle Brian

i am very sorry about this death and many others at this crossing. there are two planks missing at this crossing that someone in the dark could get their foot in or bike run into. and i wouldnt have the slightest idea how long it has been this way, but it has been a long time. the railroad crews sit there a lot. probably laffing at the cars tht go over it and mess up their tires and running gear.
