With the love of farming being instilled at an early age, Brian and Laurie continued farming in the Cabery, Reddick, and Braceville areas for 45 years. Working in construction for many years, he started Naretto Construction in 1985. God’s provision then led Brian to work for RCIS crop insurance for the past 10 years. Along with his work, he served his community by being a member of the Tri-Point School Board, coaching summer softball, and being a very active leader in his church. Sharing his love for the Lord and his love for people, he served as head usher, a leader in children’s ministry, a leader of the prison ministry, a board member and treasurer, and preaching on many occasions. He knew someone everywhere he went and everywhere he went someone knew him. All who knew him appreciated his great sense of humor. His favorite people called him dad, grandpa, and in from the field for supper.
