Brian "Big B" passed away on April 24th, 2023 on Hilton Head Island, SC.
Brian was born on January 11th 1966 in Parma, Ohio to his parents, Frank and Pat Lake. He proudly served in the United States Air Force as an Aerospace Propulsion Specialist Sergeant and received an honorable discharge in 1994. Brian married the love of his life Pamela Pachuta in 1982. He and Pam raised a beautiful family of three girls in Ohio before moving to Hilton Head where Brian designed and built their dream home.
Brian was first and foremost, a loving father, devoted husband and a tried and true family man. His sense of humor was unparalleled and he was often referred to as "the life of the party". We were blessed to learn the many lessons of Brian such as "how to get past a customer service representative and speak to a supervisor", and "who is truly the best classic rock band of all time (Led Zeppelin vs. Van Halen).
Brian worked devilishly hard and owned a successful real estate investing company. His talent was outdone only by his die-hard work ethic.
Brian is survived by his wife, Pamela, his daughters, Amber, Holly and Corie, and his three grandchildren, Needah, Maximus and Milla. Husband, father, our beautiful soul, our rock...you will always be our hero.
"As it was, then again it will be; though the course may change sometimes, rivers always lead to the sea" - Led Zeppelin
