Brian and I belonged to a remarkably close family. Brian was truly a unique individual; he had an impact on everyone he met. From the time he was little, he showed a remarkable talent in school and in the way he absorbed everything around him. He worked harder than most people ever will and earned every success the hard way. He was committed to whatever he got involved in. He prodded and pushed you to do well and was the first to help you out the second you needed it. He was generous. He did a lot of good deeds and kind favors we're only just learning about now. He was my big brother.

Brian was my fraternity brother at Delta Tau Delta at the University of Colorado. Brian was always the life of the party. When he walked into the room, you knew everyone was going to have a good time. I will always remember him with a big smile. Long live the memory of Brian Cummins.
Erich Toll, fraternity brother
Brian was a very dear and close friend. Brian, Jeff Cramer and I were the kings neighborhood growing up in Belle Mead, New Jersey (unless you asked each of our older brothers). Even though I lost contact with Brian, I'll always have fond memories of him.
