Brian was an admittedly simple man who loved his wife, children, family, friends, God and his country. Though his time on Earth was far too short, Brian made every moment count with his infectious sense of humor. He loved to joke with everyone he knew. He reveled in the silly and never tired of the enjoyment of just being alive. In Brian’s world he considered every friend to be family.
A lifelong resident of Watertown, Brian Keith Ulm was born on November 27, 1964, the youngest child of William “Willie” and Kathryn “Kate” (nee Zahn) Ulm. His siblings, Bill (Jeanne Williams) and David (Judy) thought that Brian may have been spoiled a bit growing up – a notion Brian didn’t see as any sort of problem to be remedied. As a young man, Brian adopted a strong work ethic that he demonstrated throughout his life. Brian and DeDe Weber (no one outside the DMV calls her Deidra) were married on a spectacular day, on the 4th of July, 1987. They were a well-matched pair that shared all the joys and sorrows of their life together. Their children, Tanya (fiancée Alex Anderson), Kristina (committed to Jon VandeBerg), and Quentin (Kayla) were cherished unconditionally. His grandchildren Charlie, Addison, and Carter were doted on without regret. He also ‘adopted’ Alayna and Jack as his next-door neighbor grandkids – you know, just to practice.
Brian pursued many interests outside of his family life. He was an outdoorsman, a Harley fanatic, and a fan of old John Deere tractors and vintage Mopars. If anything was broken, he could fix it. He was the latest caretaker of the family legacy, a 1936 Nash—keenly aware that we are stewards of our history. With his own hands he repaired, restored, and rebuilt most anything that interested him. His habits may have filled space in his garage, but they never crowded out the people in his life.
He was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his immediate family, siblings, a pile of brothers, sister-in-law, many nieces and nephews, and by all who were blessed by his friendship. He will be forever missed.
