Brian (Brewnee), Eugene Conneely, 43, of Chicago, died suddenly March 1, 2022.
Brian was born January 5, 1979, in Chicago, Illinois. He was the son of the late Coleman (December 8, 2015) and Bernadette Conneely. Brian was an old soul with a heart of gold. He made friends wherever he went. Brian loved Chicago sports...just not the White Sox. Brian was an amazing brother, uncle, son and friend to many. He was spontaneous and always up to get together for a game, party or to lend a helping hand. We could not have been blessed anymore to have a brother like Brian. He might have been the youngest sibling, but he could teach us a lot with his unwavering outlook on life. He was always smiling, always happy even though things may have not been going his way. He never wanted you to worry about him. He just always wanted to know how you were doing.
Brian worked at Pete's Pizza for 28 years. His entire adult life. He loved the atmosphere and considered them his second family.
Brian is survived by his mother Bernadette Conneely; his siblings Coleman (Sally), Martin (Sue) and Sean (Marie); he was a loving uncle to Maureen, Sean, Kate, Bridget, Faith, Quinn, Jake and Luke.
