1966 - 1996


During his elementry and high school years Mr. Kershaw was an avid skier, a “Roadrunner” soccer player, an All League football player and a State Championship golf participant as a “Carroll Patriot.” At Gonzaga, he developed a special interest in computers, becoming totally absorbed in his “Apple” and “Mac.” This passion remained and served him well as a management tool. Brian would escape to music to calm his soul. An accomplished electric guitar player, he enjoyed spending his precious free time creating and “jammin’.”

Mr. Kershaw enjoyed recreation, computers, animals, music, friends and family. He was described as a gentle person, a loving husband, a quiet leader and a “good guy.” With his varied interests and many responsibilities, Mr. Kershaw led a full life.

He was survived by his wife Stephanie, his parents Ed & Mary Ann Kershaw and his brother Kevin.

Friends and family of Brian Kershaw created this memorial fund to honor his life. A $1500 scholarship is awarded yearly to a student who has grown up in a tree fruit family from Yakima County, and who will be studying for a future career in the tree fruit industry.
