Max “Brian” Kingsbury

Max “Brian” Kingsbury, 61 of Rochester, passed away peacefully of natural causes at his home on Friday, January 22, 2021.

Brian was born on April 6, 1959 in Rochester to Max and Judy (Hoban) Kingsbury. The family moved to Byron in 1962 and Brian graduated from Byron High School in 1977. He attended RCTC and Mankato State University, later settling in Rochester, where he started his own business, Fixed Rite Home Services, which he ran for over 30 years. He was very passionate about the volunteer work he did for seventeen years with the Olmsted Co. Sheriff’s Dept. K-9 Search & Rescue, and Dive Team. He spent many hours at Chester Woods Park setting up and planning training for the Search and Rescue Team. He also had fun at Christmas time running around town surprising his family and friend’s children playing Santa Claus.

All who knew him will remember him for his compassion, generosity, and sense of humor.

He was met with open arms by his parents and his sister Kristine in heaven.

He is survived by two sisters Randi (Tom) Swanson of Hackensack, MN, Bonny (Mat) Churchill of Kasson, MN, three nephews Erik (Jess) Swanson of Byron, Andy (Karen) Swanson of Hackensack, MN, Jackson Churchill of Kasson, three great-nephews and one great-niece.

A visitation will be held on Friday, February 5, 2021 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM at the Byron Funeral Home (1620 Voll Drive NW Byron, MN).

Condolences

The family of Max “Brian” Kingsbury has received the following condolences.

 We wanted to give our deepest condolenseces to Brian's immediate family and will say a prayer during this difficult time period.  For me personally, Brian was a few years older and I thought he was the coolest kid in the world when I was young.  He had so many different hobbies such as leather crafting and wood burning and was an Eagle Scout.  He was so nice to everyone and a great role model for a young kid.  When we would go home, I would just want to make something to be like Brian.  We hadn't seen in each other in many decades but reconnected a bit with social media and sad to hear about his passing.  I had just sent him a note a few days earlier prior to his death.  I know my brothers and sister felt the same way and just wish his family the best.  His Uncle Jerry thought the world of him as well. 


With sympathy,


Frank & Jane Hoban

 My sympathies to Brian's family and friends.  I am unable to attend the Visitation on Friday so please accept my sympathies and know that Brian was a good friend of the Sheriff's Office and certainly will hold a special place in my heart always.  He was a dedicated volunteer to the Olmsted County Sheriff's office Dive and Rescue Team for a number of years.  Thank you for sharing Brian with us.  His talents, humor and dedication will be surely missed by many.  God bless Brian.

Brian was such a valued member of SMCSAR and I always enjoyed training with Brian.  I moved away from Rochester in the early 1990s but often thought of Brian and we talked just a few short years ago. He was a man of integrity and character, always willing to help and give of himself.  RIP buddy, we will miss you as you made the world a little better place!

Randi and Bonnie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We were blessed to have Brian and his huge happy spirited laugh as part of our life.  He was a special treat for the kids at Christmas!  He helped me build shelves that hold thousands of books for kindergarten kids!  I believe he also helped with face painting as a volunteer.  He was a kind and gentle man.  He will be missed.  We are sorry for your loss and hope your family finds peace and joy in the near future.

Rest in peace, Brian. 🙏❤️

Bonny & Randy,


Have thought of Brian often over the years.  So many good memories!  A great fun guy!  They say you never forget your first love.  He is no longer suffering and in heaven talking things out with your Mom & Dad.  Prayers for you both.

I worked with Brian on the K9 Search and Rescue Team with my chocolate lab, Penny. Brian would feed her cheese sticks and taught her “easy” or she’d grab the cheese stick from him!  She’s forever imprinted with the love of “finds” and all the other amazing adventures we all had together.
