Sad to report the passing of another Sm Racer. I didn't know brian all that well but he was a good friend to many in the Great Lakes region. GodSpeed Brian.
Brian R. Naumann, 41, of Milford, MI, formerly of Parma, unexpectedly passed away on January 22, 2019.
He was born in Davenport, IA, the beloved son of Philip and Sue (nee Lipchinsky) Naumann. Brian is the loving brother of Leslie (Kevin) Hadlock and Megan Naumann; dear nephew of Joanne Walton, Lois Snyder (deceased), Robert Naumann (deceased), Michael Lipchinsky (deceased) and Mary (Andrew) Giordano; cherished grandson of the late Henry and Etta Naumann and Bernard and Margaret Lipchinsky; loving cousin of many.
If you knew Brian, you knew his love for racing. When he was younger, he was determined that when he grew up he wanted to be an organist or a race car driver. It is clear the path he chose and he never looked back. Shortly after he graduated high school in 1995, he started living his passion which continued throughout his college years. His love for cars extended into his professional life and inspired him to pursue a career in mechanical engineering. Brian was always competitive in nature and excelled academically; he had his own way of doing things and confidently lived by his own rules. Brian will truly be missed by many, but never forgotten. Although he has crossed the finish line of life, memories of Brian will live on forever.
The family will receive friends on Friday, February 1, 2019 from 5PM-7PM at the Sunset Chapel in Sunset Memorial Park, 6245 Columbia Rd., North Olmsted where memorial services will commence on Friday at 7PM. His final resting place will be at the Westwood Abbey Mausoleum at Sunset Memorial Park.
