Brian Dana Reaves, age 34, died unexpectedly Monday, March 25th, 2019 in his home in Allston, Massachusetts. He was born May 31st, 1984 in Leominster, to Dana and Karen Reaves. He was a 2003 graduate of Lunenburg High School and went on to study at Bunker Hill Community College. He was passionate about his career and spent 15 dedicated years in the restaurant industry in Boston, creating a loyal following of patrons wherever he worked.

He was a wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend, who would effortlessly light up any room when he stepped inside. He created a unique atmosphere with his inviting energy, and for that he will always be remembered. He is survived by his parents, Dana and Karen; brother Jeff; sister in law Angela; niece Evie and nephew Teddy. Being surrounded by his family and friends, vacationing at Sebago Lake, enjoying Disney World, and playing with his niece and nephew is when Brian was truly in his element.

In remembrance of Brian, a celebration of life will be held at Apple Hill Farm and Country Club located at 143 Joslin Street, Leominster, MA 01453 on Wednesday, April 3rd from 2 — 5 pm. Committal services will be private. It is the hope of loved ones that his legacy will carry on through their efforts to shed light on the realities of depression, and that sharing his story will encourage solace and purpose in the unending impact he leaves behind.

Brian was truly a great friend and coworker and will be sorely missed. His big personality & jovial spirit always lit up the room and his presence improved every situation he was apart of - be it work, grabbing a bite to eat, or just having a drink. I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I am truly sorry to hear the news as I have fond memories sleeping over and meeting such an amazing family during the few times Brian and I were able to hang out. We actually met through Matt Raher. He really was such a great person as that is no secret to anyone. Sending much love thoughts and prayers during this time.

Dana & Karen,
Words cannot express our deepest condolences for your loss. Just know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. The loss of losing a child is such a difficult thing to understand. Bruce and I know this firsthand because we lost our beloved Spencer in July 2017.

Dear Karen, Dana and Jeff:
I will always have fond memories of Brian, Michael and Matt in daycare at Nancy Blood's; the three little amigos. Brian certainly did light up the room every time I saw him; he had a smile that was so engaging. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and with Brian during this very difficult time.

Dana, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We had just spoken a couple weeks ago when you caught me outside at my home . You stopped and offered me support for my wife and then this sudden event in your life happens with your son. We don't know why , but we need to be strong and continue on our journies. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.
