Brian Jay Ferguson
Brian Jay Ferguson
Brian Jay Ferguson, 44, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Friday, April 21, 2006 while at home with his parents in Medford, Oregon.
Brian was born in Los Angeles, California January 3, 1962 to Delbert and Sharon Ferguson. He had lived in the Rogue Valley since 1984, moving here from Denver, Colorado to be near his mother's family. He worked various construction and service jobs throughout the valley, finally settling in as a pipe-wrapper for D2 Services and a member of the Portland Asbestos Workers Local 36.
Finally, in 2002, illness prevented him from working and he retired on disability. Because of his illness, Brian had to go to Dayton, Ohio to be with his parents until his father retired in April of 2003. It was then that his parents brought him back to his beloved Rogue Valley.
He enjoyed being with family, going to church, reading his Bible, playing guitar, drawing, going fishing, and, until near the end of his battle with liver cancer, he could be seen daily walking his favorite friend, a Boston Terrier named Boo-Boo Bear.
Survivors include his sisters, Colleen and Wendy, and their families in Littleton, Colorado; his parents of Medford, many other relatives; special friends who visited him often; and his paternal grandmother in Lufkin, Texas.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather; his maternal grandparents; and his favorite uncle, Richard, upon whose grave site he will be inurned.
Pastor Mark Dalton of the Rogue Valley Fellowship will preside over a memorial service to be held Monday, May 1, 2006, at 1:00 p.m. at Memory Gardens Mortuary in Medford.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution can be made, in Brian's name, to a church or charity of choice. We'd also like to express our heartfelt thanks to Providence Hospice for their caring support. Brian will be missed by many.
