I will miss your jokes, your smile, the way you bugged me. I will miss your company, your friendship, and most of all your presence. I will miss your trash talking and sharking me at the pool table. I will miss the comraderie and challenge. I will see you again someday. RIP Brian "COW" Bouder

You knew how to make people laugh and smile with your jokes. You were full of life and willing to give the shirt off your back to help others. You will sadly be missed.

 I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to Bryan's loved ones. Bryan was a very important part of the many successful Carlisle football and wrestling teams. An outstanding athelete and team leader. His bright smile and humorous attitude gave all of us the confidence we needed to see it through no matter how rough the going. Anyone who ever saw him compete knew he could not only handle his oppoents but, he could also scare the hell out of them. I would see Bryan at functions over the years and he was always a real gentleman. He was sincere and genuine. I will miss him greatly and will always respect the way he carried himself. On behalf of all the guys who had the honor of competing with Bryan on the field of play we wish his family all the best during this difficult time.

David B. Saporito

I want to extend my deepest and heartfelt condolences to "Cow's" family and friends. Although I regret not having seen him in many years, he was still a friend. He certainly was an inspiration back in high school; he tried to teach me how to relax during competition, something I never quite learned. He had a knack for giving you something to think about and making you feel good at the same time. He worked smart and was never a "slacker." He'll be missed.

With a heavy heart,
Louis Werdebach, Woodbridge VA

To the whole family and friends, may God give you comfort and peace.  RIP "Cow"

Christine Smith

 I was saddened to hear of Brian's passing at such a young age. He was easy to get to know and seemed to be a friend to everyone he met.

 Ron Greenway, DPT

May God keep you safe in his arms....

Crystal Giles

My prayers are with those whom Cow loved!...
As a high school classmate I will forever remember his booming voice, wonderful sense of humor and smile.

Judy Prescott

Bryan was a great customer.

 I only knew you for a short time Cow. But wow, what an impression you made. I saw you as a hard nosed, stubborn azz, funny as all get out, giant teddy bear! My heart aches that you didnt allow help and that I didnt have the chance to know you better. This world was a better place with you in it. Rest In Peace my friend, you will be greatly missed <3. My thoughts and prayers go out to all Cow's family and friends...he was a good man - what a tremendous loss :(
