1954 – 2023

Brian Douglas Brolsma was born May 19, 1954 to parents Clarence and Mildred Brolsma. He made his appearance in the then new Northern Inyo Hospital Bishop, CA. He was a happy boy growing up in the Owens Valley. A deep love and respect of the Sierras and Whites, spending many happy hours hunting, fishing, camping and exploring. He passed that love onto his only son Andrew Douglas Brolsma.

Brian was an unassuming man with a wonderful sense of humor. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed. He died peacefully at his home in Big Pine, CA.

He was preceded in death by his father Clarence Brolsma and brother Larry Brolsma. He is survived by his son Andrew and mother Mildred (Tillie) Brolsma and soulmate brother Lynn Robert Brolsma of Carson City, NV. Sister in-laws Linda and Marilyn. Nieces and nephews Tara, Jarrod, and Owen Brolsma, Breanne Randall and Christina Wyatt.

His life will be honored at a later date when weather and circumstances permit.

Words are inadequate to thank those who’ve reached out to me with understanding, prayers and love. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. And a special thank you to the first responders.
