Sending all my love to Alice and the kids. Heartbroken to come across this news. Brian was such a kind, laid back man. One of the best bosses a girl could have asked for! Always made work fun to go too. So many memories.

I remember working with Brian at the old village inn for a few years and he always made me laugh we had many kitchen antics . He was a very loving and caring husband and father.

Brian was simply a really good guy. A quiet and gentle young man while we were all growing up and running through the neighborhood. I remember when he met Alice, the love of his life, and the ONLY girl whose name brought the most enormous smile to his face…..other than his children. Sending prayers, love, light and peace to Alice and the family.

Shocked and saddened to hear of Brian Kase’s passing. He was our cousin and we worked under his leadership at the Old Village Inn back in the summer of 1974 and then I was an awful waitress in summer of 79 when he managed the kitchen. We were all just teenagers but he was the chef and we washed dishes. He never yelled but he had a wry sense of humor and timing. He would throw a dirty cooking utensil back in the sink and say “Nice!” if it wasn’t cleaned properly. He put up with a lot. Rest in peace, Kase.

Very saddened by this news. One of my first jobs was washing dishes, and then later, cooking side by side with Kase at the OVI. We shared a lot of laughs there in the trenches. He was always the calm in the storm. I miss our poker nights, watching old John Wayne movies, and Christmas Eves. In more recent years I introduced him to my wife. She thought he was awesome. Because he was. RIP my friend. You were the only Cowboys fan I ever liked.
