Brian P. Ravens, 57, of Shalimar, FL unexpectedly left his earthly life to be with the Lord, Saturday evening December 17, 2016 in the loving care, and by the side of his best friend and loving confidante Susan Smith, and closest friends Ken and Christel Kelly.
Brian graduated from Northwest High School in 1977 and left Jackson, MI to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was attached to the Naval Air Wing as an airframe mechanic, and traveled the world providing mechanical support for military aircraft. Brian was an avid hunter and angler, loved golf, and was blessed by amazing friends. He took a medical retirement from Singapore Air, in Mobile, AL in 2014, and settled in Florida with plans to spend his days on his boat hosting friends and family to fishing extravaganzas.
He is preceded in death by his father Ronald Ravens, and brother Craig Ravens. Brian is survived by three daughters; Sasha Ravens, Sydney Ravens, and Courtney Ravens; and five grandchildren. In addition he is survived by his mother Roberta Ravens, two sisters; Mandy Hunter, Lynn(Dean) Perkins, brother Corey Ravens, uncle Don Babcock, several nieces, nephews, and his loving friend Susan Smith.
Cremation has taken place and his family and closest friends will partake in a celebration of his life at a favorite fishing hole that is scheduled at a later date. Condolences to his family may be sent to 875 Scrub Jay, St. Augustine, FL 32092.
Brian's genuineness, generosity, and love of life will be missed by all those who loved him. His laughter will resonate as a reminder, that even against all odds, life is good.
