Age 81, resident of Lino Lakes, passed away on Wednesday, February 14th, with his family by his side.

Brian was born on August 27, 1942, in Austin, MN to the late Merlin Beadle and Maxine Ruud Beadle. Brian grew up in Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 1960. After high school, he attended the Austin Junior College and earned an Associate's Degree. Brian then joined the army and was stationed in Germany for two years. Following his time in the service, he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of Minnesota- Minneapolis. Shortly after earning his degree, he was employed at Northwest Federal Bank in Amery, WI where he advanced to being the president of the bank and remained there for his career. Brian and his former spouse, Kristi Eastwood, were married in 1973; though this relationship wasn't permanent, they had 3 children together and remained friends afterward. Brian was married to Daryl Gillespie in 2001.

Brian and Daryl traveled to all seven continents together and had a passion for experiencing the diversity of the world. Brian and Daryl stood on icebergs in Antarctica with 400,000 penguins; they climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and cruised down the Amazon. Brian had many different hobbies throughout his life, including sailing, woodworking, bicycling, golfing, playing guitar, writing poetry and books, acting in plays, and attending shows and athletic events. Brian was almost always working on a project and singing his 50's and 60's songs. Brian and Daryl also loved supporting and watching their grandchildren as they participated in their many activities.

Brian spent the last 14 months of his life at Keystone Place at Lavalle Fields in Hugo, MN. The family would like to thank the staff for the exceptional care and love he received at Keystone. Brian will be remembered as a loving and generous husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
