Brian Laycock Obituary, Death – Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a family member. We are devastated to announce the passing of our beloved brother, son, and dad, Brian “BRIO” Laycock, who peacefully slipped away in his sleep this morning. Brian valiantly battled prostate cancer, demonstrating unwavering determination and strength throughout his years-long fight. He wanted nothing more than to witness his son Louis grow up, walk his daughter Mia down the aisle, and see his son Tom take over his business.
In true Bri style, he left us on the anniversary of his arrival, today being his 55th birthday—a testament to his unique character and sense of timing. Brian was known for his sharp wit and a humor that could bring tears of laughter to those lucky enough to share his company. He was the most ruthless when it came to banter, and his honesty, though sometimes brutally delivered, was a reflection of his unwavering loyalty and determination.
He was never one to back down from a spirited argument, but as brothers, we wouldn’t have had it any other way. Brian had a fierce love for his family, and he would have defended us with his last breath. Just days before his passing, Brian was doing what he loved most, working on the Reminisce festival site. He was eagerly looking forward to building the festival alongside his brothers, mates, and his festival family. Brian’s commitment to making a difference in the world was unwavering.
Brian leaves behind a void that cannot be filled. His family, his children, and our beloved mother are all devastated by this loss, and we are still coming to terms with the reality of his absence. We ask for your patience and understanding during this incredibly difficult time as we find our way through the grief. Rest easy, Bro. We have no doubt that you are in a better place now, reunited with Dad, who waits with open arms to welcome you. Your memory will forever live on in our hearts.
