- About Us
After a years long, hard fought battle with the devil himself, AKA Pancreatic Cancer, Brian D. Crane passed away peacefully at his home in Kuna Idaho on Friday September 7, 2018 just one day after reaching his 53rd birthday. Always a goal setter this came as no surprise.
Born on September 6,1965 in Duncan British Columbia he was adopted and raised by his mother Janice and father Tony Crane.
After moving to the states as a young man he lived in Tooele Utah where he graduated from High School in 1983. He then went on to Kentucky where he received a bachelor’s in business.
After college, circumstances introduced him into the world of auto sales where for over 30 years, with most of it being in the SLC Utah area, he was moving metal, mentoring minds and otherwise just killing it in the car business. There are not many out there better then he was! Because of his exceptional skills and knowledge over his long career, he had met and maintained many longtime friendships, which is both wonderful and amazing and he truly cherished them all.
Brian will be greatly missed by his loving wife Jatan (AKA his rock) and his sons Sean, Logan and Cameron (Shelby). As well as by all his brothers and sisters, his birth mother Karen and apparently also by most of the Yukon territory, where he was lucky enough to discover a whole new family he didn’t even know he had and that brought such great joy to him the last year and a half of his life.
He is preceded in death by both of his fathers, Anthony Crane and Charles “Chuck” Rear as well as his first wife Kelly and a brother David.
Brian was known to be very smart, quick witted, intense, passionate, strong and maybe just a little stubborn. He also had a huge heart, was very generous and kind, funny, encouraging to others, and definitely a dog lover.
He enjoyed playing golf immensely, and on any given course is where you could find him on almost every Sunday, he was pretty darn good at it too! Some of his more less known talents that he had, were juggling (oh yes, I kid you not) and he was also quite the pool shark!
So as another football season begins we can’t help but smile, as we will certainly always remember what a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan Brian was, if the man could have literally bled blue, he would have. And to all the Eagles fans out there, screw you, you just got lucky last year!
A remembrance of his life will be held on Monday September 17, 2018 at thel Lindquist's Bountiful Mortuary at 727 N 400 E Bountiful UT, 84010 Viewing starting at 6:oo pm with service to follow at 7:00 pm
