Brian Joseph Roud

Brian Joseph Roud, 39 years old, passed away on August 28, 2008, after a courageous two year battle with leukemia. Brian was born April 18, 1969, the youngest child of Tom and Maureen Roud.

Brian grew up in Fillmore and graduated from Rio Mesa High School. Brian was confined to a wheelchair most of his life due to Ataxia Telangiectasia. His disability could not dampen his spirit for enjoying and living life to the fullest. His adventures took him to Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Hawaii, fishing in Alaska, river rafting down the American River, and many road trips to Las Vegas and across the United States.

Brian was generous and loving, and what he enjoyed most of all was spending time with his family. His passing has left a large void in our lives which we will try to fill with the many beautiful memories we have of him.
He will be dearly missed by his father Tom Roud, brothers Thomas and Daniel, sister in law Deborah, sister and brother in law Kathleen and Andrew Aguirre, nephews and niece Benjamin , Noah, and Brooke Aguirre, and numerous Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his mother Maureen and sister Anne Roud.

Rosary will be at 5:30 pm Thursday Sept. 4, and a celebratory Mass will be at 10 am Friday Sept 5 both at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Fillmore.
