Brian was born in York on May 12, 1958 to the late John W. and Dawn E. (Gross) Kepler. Brian graduated from Dallastown High School, class of 1976 and was a proud United States Marine Corps Veteran.

Brian loved to sing and attend school concerts of his beloved grandchildren.
Besides his wife, he leaves his son, Charles E. Kepler and wife, Melissa of Lower Windsor. Brian adored Missy and considered her to be his daughter.

He will be missed by his nieces, nephews and cousins.
