Brian Eric Worlund, 54, of Vernon, CT died peacefully Thursday, July 9th, 2020 with his family by his side. Brian was born in Hartford, CT and was the beloved son of Marilyn (Twible) Worlund and the late Edward H. Worlund, Sr. He graduated from Rockville High School and was a Sheet Metal Worker by trade with Local #40. Brian left the trade to care for his parents, whom he always referred to as his best friends. Brian put family above all else and was a loyal and loving son. He also loved and cherished his friends and neighbors. Brian was an avid hockey player who loved the Hartford Whalers and spending every winter on the ice with his buddies. He loved being outside whether it was working, fishing, yard work or playing with his nieces and nephews. Brian could re-tell any story of work, friends or family and have you laughing out loud. He will be greatly missed for his loving nature, his amazing sense of humor, blue eyes and infectious smile.
