This is the story of Brian Heath Watts. Brian’s story starts on June 3, 1985. He was born to Bruce and Connie in Richmond, IN.

As a kid, he loved hanging out with his grandparents, performing magic tricks, and telling jokes. After graduating from Hagerstown High school in 2004 and Indiana University Bloomington in 2008, he chased his dreams to move to Los Angeles California to perform stand-up comedy. He performed at many major venues, including the Laugh Factory. His work career as a senior copywriter allowed him the freedom to travel the world. His passion for adventure took him to Europe, Costa Rica, Iceland and many other beautiful places. Brian lived life to the fullest. He never forgot the importance of family and friends and always made sure he didn’t miss the milestones in people’s lives back home. He was a practical joker with a generous heart of gold, never hesitating to help people out. Because he was a big kid at heart, his nieces and nephews adored him. Brian can be best described as genuine and never hesitated to let people know he loved them. What made Brian wasn’t anything we could touch, it was his uniqueness, his love and energy. Everyone who knew Brian will greatly cherish his impact on their lives, either through love, friendship, or humor.

Brian is survived by his parents, his two sisters, Heidi Lipscomb, Heather (Craig) Towns, and his brother Brittan (Sophia) Watts.
