Brian K. Reuss, 61, of Marissa, IL, born June 23, 1959 in Red Bud, IL, passed away on Sunday October, 25, 2020 at St. Louis University Hospital in St. Louis, MO. Brian was a recently retired electrician, having served 41 years at the Baldwin Power Plant. He was enjoying post-retirement work driving a semi. Brian enjoyed spending time with his family, camping, hunting, fishing and trapshooting. If someone needed something done and he could do it, it got done. A jack of all trades, there wasn’t much he couldn’t do. He could often be found working on the family farm, which he loved. Brian was a very devoted Christian and loving husband, dad, grandpa, and so much more. He was an Elder at the Marissa Presbyterian Church and a member of the New Athens Sportsmen’s Club.
He was preceded in death by his stillborn sons Joshua Eric and Caleb Matthew Reuss.
Brian is survived by his parents; Elden and Marilyn (Church) Reuss of Marissa, IL, his loving wife; Laurie K.
