My sincere condolences to the DeGroff family. I worked with Brian for many years at The Record. A gentleman and terrific person. RIP Brian

Working with Brian has always been a pleasure. He is a true gentleman, always holding the door open and putting a second cup under my coffee so I wouldn't get burnt. Who does that? He was always kind, thoughtful and lending a helping hand. He was always happy and enjoyed his day. I can't remember him being in a bad mood. I am glad he got to go sky diving with his daughter recently. He so deserved it! He will always be remembered at Liberty Subaru and from all of us, we will truly miss seeing his smiling face and sincere, "Good Morning!"

Dear Elaine, Lindsay and Brian, I am so sorry for your loss. I always respected and admired Brian when I worked for him at the Record Newspaper. The last few years it was always great to see him and catch up when I brought my Subaru in for repair. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Gineen Cowling Weiss
