Brian Whittaker, 36, of Pittsfield

Growing up in the Berkshires, Brian loved fishing at local lakes with his friends and family, building and riding motorcycles, and snowboarding with big brother Billy.

It is with great sadness that the family of Brian A. Whittaker announces his unexpected passing on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at the age of 36. Brian was a committed and loving father, brother, son and friend. He loved life and lived every day to the fullest. People will remember Brian for his big heart, beautiful smile and free spirit. The biggest joy in his life was his son, Brayden, and spending time with his best friend: his father, Dan Whittaker (predeceased Dec. 18, 2019).
