Obituary for Brian Edward Black

Brian Edward Black, of Rolla, passed away Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at the age of 36.
He was born on November 12, 1981 to Paul Edward “Eddie” Black and Shirley (Crocker) Black. On October 9, 2010 he married Shayla (Walker) Black who survives of the home.
He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents; an uncle, Terry Black; and aunts, Wanda Roberts and Lou McKnight.
Brian was employed with MoDOT for nearly 16 years. He attended both Victor Baptist Church and Greentree Christian Church and has gone home to be with his Lord and Savior. He enjoyed operating heavy equipment. Brian was the best husband, son, brother and friend you could ask for. He went out of his way to help others because he loved and cared about everyone he met. No one was a stranger to Brian.
He lived life to the fullest-he was always on the go. Turkey hunting, deer hunting, mushroom hunting and fishing were some of his favorite things.
Family was very important to him and he always tried to make everyone laugh. He was well loved and will be greatly missed by all.
