Brian Heyden left us way too soon at the age of 47. His mother, Sandra Manzella Heyden, passed away when he was young leaving him with her sparkling, smiling eyes. Here to remember him with love, honor and dignity are his sister, Jann Heyden; maternal grandmother, Fredora Manzella; father,Phil Heyden; a large and loving extended family and a community of loyal friends.
As with all of us, Brian was multi-faceted, known as a curious adventurer with a gentle soul and a man of strong feelings. He was fearless and way too often misunderstood, he meandered back and forth across the nation with a sense of freedom that most will never know. Brian had many stories to tell. On the road he was known by his friendliness and interest in meeting new people. He carried with him the skills and eagerness to work to sustain his journey. He held firm beliefs about health and wellness. Despite an unconventional lifestyle which left him weathering the elements, he was deeply committed to putting healthy food in his body.
Brian will be remembered by his warm smile, wit and adventurous spirit.
