Brian J. Masciotra, 33, left us on May 21, 2012. Survived by his parents, James W. and Georgine Masciotra; and sister, Pamela (Scott) Gornick. Brian was born Aug. 8, 1978, and graduated from Pueblo South High School in 1997. He was definitely a 'people person' and had an infectious personality, a wonderful sense of humor, and brought such happiness to those who knew him. Brian was a hard worker and very resourceful, lending his talents at many jobs including, lifeguard, ski chairlift operator, restaurant manager, and most recently, earned his CDL license and was a beverage delivery driver in Denver for the Dr. Pepper/Snapple Corporation. Brian shared a special bond with his grandfather and referred to him as 'The Old Man.' When his grandfather passed away in 2007, Brian inherited his bright red Monte Carlo. Brian was known to spend many hours treating this car with loving care and was most proud of keeping it as shiny and new as the day 'The Old Man' drove it off the car lot. There will be a memorial service for Brian at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 26, 2012, at the Montgomery & Steward Chapel. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. The family respectfully requests in lieu of food and flowers, contributions may be made to a memorial fund that has been established in Brian's name through Montgomery & Steward Funeral Directors, 1317 N. Main St., Pueblo, CO 81003. Online condolences,

  18. Brian,

    I will always cherish the memories I have of us growing up. I always admired how well you connected with people, and people connected with you. You were a true friend to many. Brian, you were more than my cousin, you were an older brother to me. I will miss our conversations, giving our mothers a hard time, and your laughter. You were an incredible person and will be truly missed.

    Love – Chad

  19. Brian I knew you for a short period of time, but the sorrow and pain that I feel in my heart today, tells me you made a huge impact on me. I will miss your smile, your honesty, your compassion for others.Our conversations around our kitchen table.
    You will be missed, and a part of my life forever. God will take care of you for us, until we meet again.

  20. God gave me many sons through Anthony. Brian was one of those sons. One of his greatest quality was true friendship. He knew what it meant and to how to always be there when you needed him. He could always put a smile on your face. I have so many great memories and stories. I will miss him terribly as will everyone who knew him.

  21. Georgine, Jim, & Pam
    What a fitting tribute to Brian…yes he was a great people person…brought to us many wonderful moments. We shall remember the smile and his thoughts. Our prayers go with all of you…when it seems the darkest, a light does appear- may he enjoy the feeling of peace.

  22. Dear Georgine,
    For you and your family in this time of sarrow my sincere sympathy. We had many conversations about our children on our morning walks. Your friend MaryEllen Blasing

  23. I remember so many wonderful times spent with Brian as we were growing up. We would have a “cousin’s” trip to Water World every summer, we would dye Easter eggs at Grandma’s house, and even celebrate 4th of July together. One year we even lit the trash can on fire with a sparkler!

    Brian was such a wonderful and gentle spirit, and was always there with a smile, a laugh, and a hug. I will miss him very much but am so grateful that I got to spend so many wonderful times with him.

    Love Always,

  24. We lived together for a bit in college and you opened my eyes to what friendship means. From watching the Lebowski a million times, to the Elks Lodge BPOE 1623 to the “Cebolla Lodge”, brother, I will miss you. You were someone I could always count on and I wish I had the chance to say it before now. Thanks for always being my friend Brian. Peace be with you brother.

  25. Although I only knew Brian a short time I enjoyed working with him. He was a kind, honest person who didn’t hesitate to help someone out in need. I remember a long day we had traveling back from Eastern Colorado- I had a dead battery in my vehicle and he gave me a ride home and gave me a jump start. You will be missed. Rest in peace, my friend.

  26. Brian, thanks for always putting a smile on my face! You always knew exactly what to say at the right time. Also, thanks for the many, many laughs. You also had a way of saying the wrong things at the wrong time! I will miss you.
    To the Masciotra family, you were truly blessed to have such an amazing spirit in your life! My heart goes out to all of you.

  27. Dear Pam and Family,
    Mitch and I just want you know we are so saddened by the death of your brother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
    Peggy and Mitch Johnson

  28. We will miss Brian so much. I remember his smile, his laugh, and his caring heart. I remember the days when he was young and we would go to Water World and have so much fun. He was also an alter server at our wedding and remember how special it was to have him right there with us.

    He will be in our hearts and memories forever. We love you so much Brian, thank you for brightening our days.

  29. Brian was definitely a very special young man. He was very caring, and had a great sense of humor. He was a great friend to me, and I cherish every memory with him. He stayed at my hotel once a week, and I knew I could always count on a smile, and usually a pack of peanut M&M’s. He brightened my day everytime he walked through the door.

  30. My deepest condolences go out to the Masciotra family.
    I have many fond memories of Brian that I will cherish. He always made me laugh when I was around him with Todd and the other guys. I am so sorry for your loss!

  31. I’ll miss you Brian. It was great working with you and I always enjoyed your sense of humor. You an me, the newbies that we were. Hope you get to come back, as I would enjoy running into your spirit again. Peace Brother
