BRIAN HAROLD BREUEL (1944 - 2016)
Brian died on May 29, the final day of our Fiftieth Reunion, from complications following surgery. He had struggled with various health problems over the past year.
A Florida resident, Brian came to Princeton from The Lawrenceville School, where he played baseball and football. At Princeton he worked in the dining halls, played freshman football, majored in politics, and served as vice president of Cannon Club.
He received his law degree from the University of Florida. He spent a number of years in the life insurance industry, then turned to the wealth management field, serving for many years as president of Wealth Strategies LLC, in Lawrenceville. He published two books on wealth management.
Brian served Princeton and our Class in a number of ways, including service as Class President, Class Agent, P-Rade Marshal, and Princeton Prize in Race Relations board member. He was president of the Lawrenceville Alumni Association, chairman of the D & R Greenway Land Trust, and member of the Deans Advisory Council at Westminster College of the Arts.
An avid traveler and sailor, Brian at one point took a five-year mid-life sabbatical to travel the world with his wife, Ley, including sailing the Caribbean in his Hinckley yawl.
The Class extends its condolences to Ley, daughters Erin and Quinn, and grandchildren Andy and Bailey.
