Brian Richard Sisk

SORRENTO, La. — Brian Richard Sisk, a resident of Sorrento, La., and formerly of Joplin, Mo., met our Heavenly Father on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, at the age of 57. We knew him by many names, Daddy, Pops, Big Brother, Siskco, Big Boy, Rockhead and most of all, Friend.

He was born March 14, 1956, to Nadine Butler and Stephen Sisk. Brian was a 1974 graduate of Parkwood High School where he excelled at wrestling and Golden Gloves. He was a retired employee of Dow Chemical in Plaquemine, La. He was generous with his heart, his time, and anything he had. He was a father full of love and a friend ready to help. All he ever asked for was a smile and a big fish on the line! Brian wrote his story on all of our hearts.

Services were Tuesday, March 4, at Ourso Funeral Home, 13533 Airline Highway, Gonzales, La. Pastor James May officiated. Interment was in Greenoaks Memorial.

Brian is survived by his mother, Nadine Sisk, of Duncanville, Texas; daughter, Melanie Raye Sisk and spouse, Bobby Robertson, of Prairieville, La.; son, Austin Michael Sisk, of Sorrento; two brothers, Brent Sisk, of Arizona, and Kenneth Sisk, of Sorrento; two sisters, Laurie Sisk, of Joplin, and Angela Sisk, of San Diego, Calif.; and his former spouse and friend, Janet Anglin, of Gonzales. Brian also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, and a wealth of childhood friends, who he embraced as family his entire life, including Gisele Ellis, Sue Whited, Mark Whited and Richard Whited, all of Joplin; and a special and rare friendship with Donny Ridinger. He was preceded in death by his father, Stephen Dale Sisk; and a brother, Stephen Dale Sisk II.

We have peace in knowing there are no goodbyes in Jesus. His days are now filled with worshiping his Saviour, Jesus.
