Interment will follow services in Hillcrest Cemetery in Moravia. \n\nBrian was born on September 5, 1962, to Jerold J and Carolyn Lee (Johnson) Luse in Centerville, IA. \n\nBrian was raised on the Luse’s family farm outside of Moravia where he learned the values of hard work and putting family above all else from a young age. When Brian was five years old, the family welcomed a sister to the family, (Carol) Leanne. Throughout his youth, Brian was active in local 4-H and the Moravia FFA Chapter, showing many animals over the years at county fairs, and he played football throughout high school.\n\nBrian graduated from Moravia High School in 1980. After high school, Brian continued working on the family farm, and eventually helped start and run J, G, and B, Trucking with his father Jerold and uncle GE Luse. \n\nIn the spring of 1995, Brian and the late Patricia (Fisher) Clark welcomed their son Austin to the world. Those who have known Brian throughout the years know that Austin was his proudest achievement – while raising Austin, Brian’s social life mainly pertained to attending ball games and tournaments all over the state, and he would not have had it any other way. Some of Brian’s fondest memories were spent with a crew of fellow parents and football fans at the White Buffalo Restaurant and Lounge after Albia football games.\n\nNot long after Austin began attending college, Brian met the love of his life, Rhonda Hedgecock. Rhonda helped show Brian how to continue living his life to the fullest, as the couple spent countless days and drove countless miles taking road trips from coast to coast with their beloved dog Sable. When they began dating, it was quite a battle to convince Brian to get a dog, let alone a teacup-sized one like Sable, but it was a match made in heaven as Brian fell head over heels for not only Rhonda but their puppy. Rhonda’s love for the beach, coupled with Brian’s love for NASCAR races and Hawkeye-bowl games made them perfect travel companions, especially in the winter months.\n\nA lover of country music and classic tunes, Brian will be remembered by many for manning the jukebox at local establishments, and carrying a tune better than most could ever dream. Brian loved the Iowa Hawkeyes, and having his son attend the University of Iowa only strengthened their bond. He put his fatherly duties above all else and put his best foot forward every day for his family. Brian’s contagious, big laugh was unmistakable and his joy for life and those he loved will be greatly missed.\n\nBrian worked in agriculture throughout the entirety of his life, and for many years he and Tyson Patton were a tandem deal. Where Brian went, Tyson was going too – Tyson was Brian’s right hand man at work for the last several years, and one of his most trusted confidants. \n\nBrian is survived by his son Austin J (Veronica) of Des Moines, his wife Rhonda and her daughter Lexy (Hedgecock), his sister Leanne (Steve) Ports of Jackson, WI, and his niece Olivia and nephew Nicholas, his mother-in-law Roseann Barbaglia, his sister-in-law Renee Barbaglia, his uncle GE (Elaine) Luse, and several cousins.\n\nHe was preceded in death by his parents Jerold and Carolyn Luse, and his son’s mother Patricia (Fisher) Clark.
