Shortly after graduating, Brian moved to Houston, TX to follow his passion of becoming a funeral director. He accomplished his goal December 16th, 2012, where he graduated from Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service in Houston, TX, with his Associate of Applied Science Degree in Funeral Service. Brian was a very special part of our family here at McNutt Funeral Home. He enjoyed serving the community of Lufkin, TX while also being a proud member of the Lufkin Rotary Club in his free time.
