Brian Michael Winer 28, of Londonderry, died March 26, 2014 at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He had endured a two-year battle with stage IV Metastatic Melanoma of the brain.
He was born Sept. 27, 1985 in Boston, Mass., the youngest child of Beatrice (Dupont) Winer and the late Daniel Michael Winer.
He was an accomplished chef. His passion for food was undeniable, and the joy he found in sharing this with others brought him his greatest sense of fulfillment. Brian spent his short life working to make the father he lost at a young age proud.
He was a musician and a devoted Bruins and Patriots fan.
He leaves his mother, Beatrice (Dupont) Winer; three sisters, Jessica (Winer) Leavitt, Amy-Lynne Briggs, and Gabrielle (Winer) Hampton; two brothers, Daniel Briggs and Jacob Winer; brothers-in-law Noel Leavitt, Joseph Tenters, and Ken Martel; and five nieces and nephews, Rachel, Adam, Eden, Dash, and Benjamin.
Calling hours were March 29 at the Peabody Funeral Homes and Crematorium, Londonderry. A remembrance ceremony followed.
