Brian Earl Eden was born March 10, 1978, to Robert and Laurine (Bergman) Eden in Britt. He was raised and educated in Britt, graduating from West Hancock High School with the Class of 1996. He later attended NIACC in Mason City.
Brian worked with his family at the Original Saw Company in Britt for several years in various positions, most recently in sales and customer service where he displayed equipment in trade shows in locations as far away as Hannover, Germany.
Brian was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church in Britt. Though he had some struggles, his faith was strong and he enjoyed a personal relationship with the Lord.
Brian enjoyed being outdoors: whether fishing with his grandmother in his youth, riding his motorcycle; or more recently, observing wildlife, especially eagles and other birds. He was an avid fan of Camaros, the Cowboys and James Bond movies. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his daughters. They enjoyed playing with Legos and watching movies together, (often Scooby Doo cartoons).
Brian is survived by his mother, Laurie Eden of Britt; his daughters Brylee and Berkley Eden, and their mother Amanda of Clear Lake; his brother Allen (Jennifer) Eden of Clear Lake, and their children Delaney, Brooklynn and Jackson; aunts and uncles, Diane (Doug) Schlei and David (Sally) Bergman, cousins, other family members and friends, along with his beloved cat, Smokey.
Brian was preceded in death by his grandparents, Henry and Helen Bergman and Earl and Rose Mary Eden; his father, Bob, in 2014; and his beloved dog, Chopper.
