Brian was another of the unforgettable friends here on the Allis Forum.  Brian was from Australia and was an Australian Military Veteran.  He loved his A/C tractor, was an avid motorcyclist, and frequent contributor to the forum.  Who can forget his pictures of the "scenery" in Australia, or his two legged running horse and truck gif files?   The thing that always amazed me for Brian was his extensive knowledge of US history (better than most of us US residents).  I kept in contact with Brian even after he left the forum, up until his health became bad and he was  no longer online.
His obituary read in part:  

REES, Brian Harrison

29/7/1947 – 13/12/2023

Formerly of Oatley NSW. Army number 217464. Passed away on the
13th of December 2023
in Perth WA.

Loving Brother of Edward Thomas (Ted) Rees and Brother-in-Law of Doris Ann Rees. Father of Craig, Damian, Carolyn and Step-Father of Michael.

I to kept in touch with Brian after he was off the forum. Lost track of him though. I had sent a bunch of emails to him, and one got through and I remember he told me he was having problems with his computer and receiving emails. The last I chatted with him via email he was going on a motorcycle event with his lady friend, and I never heard back from him anymore. He used to send me a lot of funny stuff via email with B&B on it. Especially the show car girls. I didn't realize we had lost him. Damn!!  Great man!

Thank you Ted. I miss Brian’s two legged horse. One December, I made a comment that it can’t be Christmas because I hadn’t seen It’s A Wonderful Life yet. He posted a clip of the holiday classic for me.

Last night I was going through my archived E-mail and checking some of the mail from Brian and Barb - seems I saved many over the years and as well as a bunch of videos he sent me on discs - he seemed to have areal understanding of editing thing 
 His MAD DOG  Productions discs . Also seemed to have a knack for cracking program discs - not saying anyone else ever used them
