Brian Michael Kissel

September 3, 1964 – June 2, 2017

Brian M. Kissel, Age 52 of Southgate.  

Beloved husband of Dawn Kissel. Loving father of Amber Kissel. Dearest son of Margaret and the late Russell Kissel. Dear brother of Dennis (Monica) Kissel, Jean Kozara and Jane (Jim) Fleming. Also survived by many nieces, nephews and friends.

Brian M. Kissel graduated from Southgate Anderson High School in June 1983. Brian and his wife, Dawn, married on September 17th, 1988 and were together for 28 years. He was a hard-working man. Some of the jobs he enjoyed included delivering produce for La Piccolo Brothers, home plate security at Comerica Park’s opening year and security at Republic National Distributing Company, formerly known as National Wine and Spirits, for 17 years. On his off time, he loved spending time with his wife at various sports bars, casinos or just sitting on the patio with an ice cold beer, listening to music or the Detroit Tigers baseball game, near a fire with their dog, Roxie. Brian also loved to travel to places such as Las Vegas and Walt Disney World with Dawn and their daughter, Amber. He was a goofy, fun-loving man – the life of the party. Brian was a loving husband and father. He will truly be missed and will forever be in our hearts.
