Former San Diego resident and U.S. Army veteran Brian L. Woodward passed away on Wednesday, March 31. Brian was well-known around the local community. The young man lost his fight against a severe lung infection.

The news of his passing was delivered by his father on Facebook  : 

"It is with a heavy heart that I post this tonight. A short time ago our son, Brian Woodward, lost his battle with pneumonia. At 7:23 this evening Brian, surrounded by friends and family, left this world to be with his Heavenly Father. He is no longer in pain, he is no longer tired, he is no longer searching for what this world can provided. He is finally at peace. We love you Brian more than words can say. God Speed!!!"

Since then people who were touched by Brian have been expressing their grief, memories and special stories on his Facebook page which his mother Georgia Owenby Baker has taken over.
