To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Brian P. Bracken, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
There is truly not enough room to accurately describe his time on Earth. He was a loving father, devoted husband and trusted son. In 1986, he wed his loving wife, Paula C. Bull, whom he traveled through life until the very end. There was no Brian without Paula. An avid motorcyclist, his greatest joy in life was riding his Harley with his chapter of the Patriot Guard. He wore his Patriotism like a badge of honor. Having just retired from 20 years with the NYS Department of Transportation, he was looking forward to getting back to fishing, tending to his beloved garden and just wanting to keep on keeping on.
He is survived by his loving mother Gertrude E. Bracken and predeceased by his father Bartley R. Bracken. Also, his children, Brandy M. LaFaver (David), Mindy M. Morse, Shayne J. Bracken, Robin N. Floud (Jamie), Matthew R. Bracken (Rachel), Rebecca Wiley (Shawn) and 16 grandchildren whom he adored. Brian was a man who would do anything for anyone, loved with his whole heart and will be terribly missed every day. He will always be remembered for his terrible jokes and infectious laugh.
In keeping with Brian's wishes, current services will be private and held at the convenience of the family. During this extremely difficult time, we strongly encourage friends and family to visit devito-salvadorefh.com to share condolences, photos, and memories of Brian you have, with his family.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to any Veteran's organization of your choosing in memory of Brian P. Bracken.
