Brian Nitz, age 53 of Wadsworth, passed away on March 6, 2024. He was born on October 15, 1970 in Barberton, OH. He was recognized by many as an amazing drummer. He loved spending his leisure time playing video games, both on his own to relax and with his daughter. He was a Cleveland sports fan, even through the Browns’ 0-16 season. Many would say he was happiest at the beach and with his family, always looking forward to spending time with them in the Outer Banks.

He is survived by Kyrsten Nitz (Alex Kirby) – daughter, Lynn Burnley -mother, Kellie Dunning (Danny) – sister, Melissa Gannon Parkinson (Wes) – sister, Kaitlin Burnley (Cody Wade) – sister, Ashley Dunning -niece, Savannah Wade (niece), Van Parkinson -nephew

There will be a memorial dinner to celebrate Brian’s life. The date will be posted to his Facebook page in the near future for those who would like to attend.

His family would also like to make known that in addition to the family he is survived by, Brian made lifelong connections to many through his kind, caring, and generous nature. They would like to acknowledge the many affected by his passing and thank them for their thoughts and prayers.
