Brian was commissioned in the U. S. Navy in 1969 and served in both submarines and aviation support for nine years. His final active duty assignment brought him to the Pacific Northwest, where he continued service in the U. S. Navy Reserve, retiring as a Commander. As a civilian, Brian retired in 2005 after a 27-year career in the U. S. defense industry. Barbara also retired in 2005 following a 30-year career in contract and program management in the federal government. Brian and Barbara are both members of the Rotary Club of Silverdale. They are multiple Paul Harris Fellows, members of The Rotary Foundation Bequest Society and members of the District 5020 Paul Harris Society. Married since 1969, Brian and Barbara believe in the importance of communication in couple relationships and are heavily involved in organizing and presenting at Marriage Encounter weekends. Brian joined the Kitsap County Hospice Board of Trustees in 2005 and sees it as another opportunity to serve the local community. Brian is following in his father's Rotary footsteps. Kenneth Beagle was Governor of District 6360 in Michigan in 1962-63. It was his example of both a commitment to service and leadership that has inspired Brian. Brian believes that the strength of Rotary lies in each Rotarian and in strong Rotary clubs, and his vision for the role of the District is to help and support each club to achieve its goals and to "Make Dreams Real."
