He was born Oct. 27, 1958 in Richland, WA to Audrey and Lonny Iverson. He lived in Portland, OR until he entered the 6th grade when his family moved to Washougal, WA. That same year he met his wife Nancy (Kunz). After moving to Vancouver, they married at age 16 in 1974 where they raised their children Jennifer and Joseph.
Brian worked in the electrical field for most of his life but was pretty much a master of most trades. On June 12, 1998 Brian obtained sobriety and was a dedicated member of AA. In 2001 they moved to the north Oregon Coast and in 2014 they decided it was time to come “home” to help with aging parents.
Woodworking and gardening were his passion and considered himself a bit of a farmer. Above all, his family was his priority. Brian was quiet about his faith but loved his Lord and gave Him credit for his sobriety.
Brian leaves behind his wife of 44 years, Nancy (Camas); daughter, Jennifer (Spokane, WA); son, Joseph and wife Danna (Sheridan, WY); grandchildren: Levi and finance Brooke, Joseph, Macee and Oliver; his mother, Audrey (Scappoose, OR); father, Lonny and stepmother, Gay (Vancouver); 2 brothers, Marcus and Curtis (Scappoose); sisters, Sheri Walker (Vancouver) and Annette Turner (Norman, OK); 3 stepbrothers, 1 stepsister, numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.
He was preceded in death by brothers, Aaron and Chris; stepsister, Mary; and stepfather, Jerry Weber.
