Brian E. Cristall

YOUNGSTOWN - Brian E. Cristall, 59, affectionately known as "Cheeks," passed away at home on Sunday March 24, 2024. 

He was born in Youngstown on February 14, 1965, a son of Patricia and Charles Cristall. 

Brian graduated from Canfield High School in 1983 and further pursued his passion by attending MCCTC for the welding machine trade. Brian was a dedicated concrete laborer through Local 125, showcasing his strong work ethic and commitment to his craft. Throughout his 30 year career he worked for various concrete companies such as BNB, USA Concrete, Mascaro, and O'Neil. After his retirement as a concrete laborer he worked for Federated Auto Parts. 

One of Brian's proudest accomplishments was his diverse range of talents. From tending to his vegetable garden and canning tomatoes and peppers to whipping up his famous pasta sauce and barbecue ribs, Brian's skills extended far beyond the construction site. Brian loved fishing and was an avid Notre Dame football fan. In the hearts of those who knew him best, Brian will be remembered for his kind spirit, unwavering dedication to his work, joking personality, and the love he shared with his family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife Linda (Phillips), mother Patricia Foley, sister Bernadette Cristall (James Wakeford) of Canfield; numerous nieces and nephews; many brothers and sisters-in-law, and his beloved dog Henry.

Brian is preceded in death by his father Charles E. Cristall, brother Bradley J. Cristall, nephew Dominic Drummond, mother and father-in-law Ida and Charles Phillips, and loyal canine companions Valentina and Davinci.
