Born January 13, 1978 in Oceanside, New York, he was the son of Annette Nugent Pulis and the late Bruce Spencer Pulis.  Brian was strong and was a fighter who withstood the against him.  His infectious smile warmed your heart and being around him made you appreciate life and the small things that he loved the most like eating chocolate ice cream, sitting outside to feel the breeze and the static noise on the television.
