OBITUARY: Brian Douglas Beyer, 54, Petoskey


Brian Douglas Beyer, age 54, from Petoskey, Michigan passed away on Monday, February 26, 2018 at McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital due to complications from a heart attack. Brian was recently employed at Moellar Aerospace as a factory worker but most remember him from being a bouncer at many local bars in the area. Brian loved animals and being single. He also enjoyed farming, traveling, and hanging out with friends.

Brian is survived by his brothers Bruce Beyer and Alan Beyer, sister-in-law Kristy, nephews Cody Beyer and Andrew Beyer; aunt Jean Everts (Vinicki) and her children Samantha and Dan; and many other cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandmother Cornelia “Corky” Everts of Petoskey; grandfather Irv Everts of Alanson; mother Linda (Everts) Maroun of Petoskey; father Francis “Dick” Beyer of Petoskey; and uncle John Everts of Cheboygan.

In lieu of a funeral, Brian requested a very casual memorial with friends and family. A gathering will take place on Sunday, March 4th at Vernales Restaurant, 3018 M-119, Harbor Springs, MI 49740 beginning at 3:00 p.m. Attendees are invited to bring one of their favorite “Brian Stories” to be placed in a memorial book for his family.
