There is so much I would love to share from the fond memories of having Brian as my best friend. I could write forever about the good times we had and all the great things we got to experience. Brian didn't think twice upon helping a friend. I was outside tonight looking into the sky and as the moon was shining brightly there was one star close by that shined so bright. All I could think is that was Brian. He brought so much fun and happiness to peoples lives. I will forever miss Brian but always cherish the great times that I had with him. He was a great man. Miss ya Brother, Love, Justin

My husband, Corey Frye, worked with Brian and I got to know Huss through the Plexus events and parties the past 3 and a half years he was here. He was certainly a person I knew would make an effort to greet me and ask me how things were going anytime I was around the Plexus group. At the last company picnic, Brian happened to be standing in line with me to load up on some good food. As I prepared my plate, he carefully watched me place chili on my burger and said, "wow, you're putting chili on your burger?" I politely commented to him that the boys from WI just don't know what they are missin'. He smiled and I continued through the line. We ended up sitting across from each other at the picnic and as he picked up his burger, I saw the chili fall off the burger onto his chin when he took a big bite. He looked at me and said, "Good stuff! I actually like it on my burger." I laughed with him, happy to know that NC was suiting him well. He didn't get to stay very long and that really makes me sad. As we celebrated his life at the memorial service at Plexus in Raleigh this morning, it was extremely evident that he will truly be missed by me and so many others. NC just lost a good guy. My deepest sympathy to his family, and especially to his twin sister, for he spoke of you often and every time he did, his face lit up and he smiled.

Plain and simple, Brian was an awesome guy. He genuinely cared about people and LOVED being an engineer. I sat in the cube next to him for the better part of 11 years and in that time you really get to know someone. If that wasn’t enough, we took most of our Master’s classes together, wrote our thesis together, went for walks with the gang at lunch, played volleyball together and went out drinking.. a lot. Somehow I never got tired of his endless one liners, funny stories (numbers 1-798), and incredible charisma. He will truly be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Zach Gilbert left a message on August 5, 2009:
Brian and I crossed paths many times throughout our careers at Plexus. The most recent was the last time I was in Raleigh, when I was able to catch up with Brian a bit over a couple of beers after work. I am very grateful for that opportunity. He will certainly be missed.
Tony Dupont left a message on August 5, 2009:
I worked with Brian many times over the past 16 years at Plexus. Not only was he an excellent engineer but he was a friend to everyone. He had the ability to make any event fun with his attitude, humor and warm smile. I had many discussions with him when he was considering a move into management and got to know him better as a result. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Gary Sokol left a message on August 5, 2009:

Brian, Someone just told me that you were listening from heaven. So for days, I've tried to gather my thoughts so I could tell you how much you've always meant to me. I regret not telling you sooner. My first love - WOW. I couldn't have found anyone more special. I rummaged thru some ole papers last night and found some letters you wrote. You even drew me flowers. Do you remember that? I remember high school dances, your dreams to be a photographer, your abiity to make me laugh and your strong commitment to our relationship. And lets not forget that green Cougar. Who could forget that? (Smile) Even after we no longer dated, I was always thrilled to hear your successes. And you were frequently on my mind. Thanks to God, we found each other again five months ago. Unfortunately, I never got to see you but it was great to hear your voice again. You continued to make me smile and I loved to hear your laughter. I am so happy that you are with the angels now but I am so incredibly sad that we are apart. I just found you and the time was too short. Don't worry though, now that I know where you are, we'll never drift apart again. I love you Bri - more than you'd ever know.

Troy Schmitt left a message on August 5, 2009:
I had the pleasure of working with Brian numerous times at Plexus. Whether he was in the role of engineer, project manager or functional manager, Brian always brought incredible energy, enthusiasm and creativity to his work. In addition, Brian also brought a great sense of humor. Even in difficult situations, Brian was always optimistic and raised the spirits of those around him. I learned a lot from Brian as I'm sure many others have. He will truly be missed. My sincerest sympathy to his friends and family.

I worked with Brian at James River. We carpooled for a very long time (before it was cool). He always slept on the way to work . Brian talked about the fond memories he had of the muffler shop and always spoke very highly of his parents and siblings. My sincerest sympathy to his family and friends, Brian will be missed.
John Nichols left a message on August 4, 2009:
Brian, You will be missed. I'll miss the unbridled enthusiasm you always bring to any discussion. You get people excited about things as they can’t help but be drawn in by your engaging personality. You are a creative person, often thinking with both sides of your brain at once. Certainly this is a rare skill for most engineers. You leave behind many successful projects at Plexus, and we are all better for having known you. Take care, and keep making people smile. Plexus in Boulder, Colorado

I worked with Brian for many years at Plexus. He had such a joy for life and an easy humor that was infectious. He always had a smile on his face. This is a terrible tragedy and Brian will be greatly missed.
John Simpson left a message on August 4, 2009:
I have known and worked with Brian for about the last five years. Based in Scotland, I have many co-workers in the US, but Brian really stood out as an individual of great character, warmth and integrity, keen to help and generous in his praise for others. My sincere condolences to the Huss family and to Brian's closest friends.

Mary Jo Theimer left a message on August 3, 2009:
I met Brian over 13 years ago when I started working for Plexus. We quickly formed our posse and shared lunch everyday, walks to the slough, and endless laughs. Brian's sense of humor was contagious. Along with his sense of humor came a caring and compasionate side that came out when someone needed him! This is a great loss of a great friend. He will be greatly missed and I am so grateful to have had him as part of my life. The classic lines and jokes will live on forever Brian!! Most of which I can't write on here! :-) My thoughts and prayers are with his family!
Neil Telfer left a message on August 3, 2009:
Brian was one guy I always admired since I started working at Plexus in 2005. I spoke with him on several occasions over the last three and a half years and although I never met him face-to-face, I considered him a friend. He was someone you could really count on, and I am truly saddened by his passing. I offer my sincere condolences to his family.
Mark Payne left a message on August 3, 2009:
I had the honor of working daily with Brian for over a decade - a decade filled with laughter, practical jokes, and engineering successes. He was a natural engineer, having the intuition that made his work seem effortless. He was also a good friend to countless others, always finding the bright side of life. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, and offer my sincerest condolences to his family and his many friends. He will be missed.
Cal Pasca left a message on August 3, 2009:
I met Brian three years ago when I started working for Plexus in Raleigh, NC. He has been a good friend and colleague, and always willing to lend a helping hand. It’s close to impossible to accept the reality of the unexpected loss. I will miss Brian. My sincere condolences to Brian’s entire family. Cal
Jena Bodzislaw left a message on August 3, 2009:
Brian was an early riser, as am I. We would see each other in those early morning hours, making the first pot of coffee for the day, and share a laugh or a good story. He was an absolutely terrific person and always seemed to make life a bit more enjoyable. He will be missed, by many!
Tom Radle left a message on August 3, 2009:
Working with Brian over the years you would quickly learn a lot about how to live life to the fullest. He knew and cherished the most important things in life, people and relationships. One of my fondest memories of Brian is when he sent an email to the the whole of Plexus when a new policy on "signatures" was instated. Brian may have gotten himself in a little trouble, but I find is hard to believe if it didn't bring a smile to everyone's face. We all take life too seriously at times, and may Brian be a reminder that life is better when you don't. My sincerest condolences to all of Brian's family and friends.
Tom VanHeuklon left a message on August 3, 2009:
I will forever think of Brian whenever I see a convertible Corvair, or hear a BoDeans song. Brian was a long time friend, a terrific engineer, and an all around great guy. My heart goes out to Brian's family and friends, and all who hurt for his loss. Brian, may the sun always shine on you in Heaven.
Mike Ives left a message on August 3, 2009:
Brain was one of those few people that could always bring a smile to my face know matter what situation we were in. He made what ever we were doing "fun", whether at work or play. I can still hear his energetic "we can do this!" statement rattling around in my head. His positive & humorous influence touched the lives of many will be missed.

'What's shakin' baby' Brian, you could always be counted on for a laugh. I will always crack a smile thinking about the stump, the wheelbarrow, the new dress code, co-co canoe, and 'the walk' at lunch. It was great to know ya, now I better get back to work here!!
Jennifer Thyes left a message on August 3, 2009:
The picture that is posted is just how I will always remember Brian, smiling. He was always good for a story which was sure to make you laugh. And the way he would tell the story was even better, a little humble with a boyish grin. I can still hear that light hearted chuckle of his. He will be greatly missed, and my sincere condolences go out to his many family, friends, and co-workers.
Jeffrey Newhouse left a message on August 3, 2009:
No matter what mood you’re in, when you finish a conversation with Brian you were in heaven. Life was always more exciting while in his presence. I’ll miss the recall comparisons we shared with our trucks, the jokes, the inspiration, and his work passion. Brian was a class act, my sincerest sympathy to his friends and family.
Joe Fromandi left a message on August 3, 2009:
Brian and I worked together on a few occasions – and each time, it was a great experience. Certain people possess a balance of knowledge, experience, energy, and humor which makes them a joy to be associated with. Brian was one of these people. He’ll be greatly missed by his many colleagues. My sincere condolences are extended to his family and friends.
David Strandberg left a message on August 3, 2009:
Brian was such a sharp guy, so friendly and easy to get to know - he made a big impression on me, even though we only met a few times at Plexus. My heart goes out to his family; wishing you comfort in this time of loss.
Bill and Lori Van Asten left a message on August 3, 2009:
Our deepest condolances to Brian's family at this difficult time !Although we didn't know Brian personally- it sounds like he also had that infectous "Huss" personality! Heaven must be laughing now! He will be missed!
Brian Melewski left a message on August 3, 2009:
I worked with Brian on a few projects at Plexus. You wanted him on your project not only because he was a great engineer, but for his sense of humor and can-do attitude. I remember many great times at various happy hours and other gatherings. He also kept an ongoing joke going for years about how he wanted to work on a project with explosive bolts. I'll always remember seeing his convertible at work no matter how early I got in and that we always greeted eachother with an exchange of "Hey Bri" - it was a race to see who could say it first. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
