    I think this an old college friend of mine. If he went to and graduated from Cal State Chico in 1979, I knew him and worked with him. It is 2015 now, but i always remembered him and wished him godspeed in all he did. Sounds like he was well-loved and loved his life. Let me know. — Valorie

    Very Sad. Sgt McJunkin was a great Sgt. Just a really good guy. Worked with him at the camp. Prayers for his loved ones.

    What a gift it was to have Brian work with us last year. Each day we would start with a short prayer. Brian quickly became our friend. Our only comfort is knowing he is now in Paradise with our Lord.
    Forever your Friend,

    I heard of his tragic passing and that he showed tremendous courage to the end. To think that our crazy skiing days didn’t take us then.

    What a terrible loss. There are folks that you meet and work with that you admire and respect . Brian was one of them. What a sad day.

    Very tragic loss to all who knew and worked with Brian. He was the epitome of fitness and highly motivated even after his retirement. Love and prayers go out to his family, friends and coworkers. God speed, Brian. You will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

      Brian was a good friend. We worked together at Folsom Prison. I have many memories of working in the Lock shop with him. I will remember with fondness the motorcycle rides we took. I send my condolences to his family, who he loved them very much. I know he is with the Lord and that is a comfort to all who knew him. The respect everyone felt for him is a testament of the man he was. George Gilmore
