On Friday, May 26th 2023, Brian Andrew Greenough, beloved husband, son and brother passed away unexpectedly. He is survived by his beloved wife, Samantha Greenough (Barrett); parents, Bill & Stephany Greenough; brothers, Bill (Kamarie), Matthew (Hillary) and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandmother.
Brian’s life was full of love and adventure; he loved spending time with family and friends. Dinners and sports viewing with his parents, Bill and Stephany; holidays with the long list of loving Greenough and Napoli aunts, uncles and cousins and his beloved Grandma, Dorothy. Game nights with the “Greenough Gang” comprised of Matt and Hillary, Bill and Kamarie, where we would laugh until we cried and our bellies ached. Trips to Martha’s Vineyard, hours of football and fantasy football talk, cook-offs and puppy playdates with his best friends Dave and Kylie. Amazing vacations out of state with Mike and Emily Drees, Falconio and Emily, Nate and Karen and Neuf and Alex. Pool and darts with Nick and Barzan. Golf outings with Matt, Dave, and Bill Sr. that almost always ended with “I can’t ever play with them again,” followed immediately by arranging their next tee-time together.
Brian and his wife Sam lived their lives centered around their love for each other and their fur babies, Pickle and Pepper. At home, they enjoyed cooking extravagant meals together and binge-watching It’s Always Sunny, Parks and Rec, Rick and Morty, and Seinfeld. They danced and sang together for the fur babies, making up song lyrics with their pets’ names. Brian often suggested taking Pepper for hikes at Center Park or Durand Eastman Beach–he loved to see her happy. Sam and Brian also loved dining at a rotation of their favorite restaurant; they often ordered for each other because they knew each other so well. Every summer, they escaped to Martha’s Vineyard to rest on the beach, nap, and eat “bougie food,” as Brian called it. It was on Martha’s Vineyard that Brian asked Sam to marry him. They ultimately got married in a small courthouse ceremony in Fairport in February 2021, surrounded by close family and their dog.
Brian showed pride, passion, and love through food. He could make anything, but his favorites were pizza, bagels, and bread since they were crowd-pleasers. His passion for food became his career, with time at Richardson’s Canal House (where Brian and Sam met in 2012), Pittsford Dairy, and Wegmans. His exceptional work ethic and loyalty were bound to take him as far as he wanted to go.
Celebration of Life plans will be shared widely once finalized.
Brian loved his fur babies dearly and often joked that his cat Pickle was his true soulmate. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Brian’s honor to a pet rescue that is meaningful to you.
