Brian Greenwood (46) passed away unexpectedly Saturday, March 13, 2021 at his home in Richland. He was born in a Chicago suburb, and moved with his family to Richland in 1990. He attended Hanford High School, graduating in 1992, and attended Columbia Basin College. While in high school, Brian started his first business, Radioactive Music, and was a disc jockey for numerous high school dances in Richland and the surrounding area. He loved making tie-dye shirts which he provided for his high school graduating class. Later he started a second business, Intelligent Video Systems, which provided surveillance cameras, produced videos, and computer storage for them. He provided surveillance systems for many casinos in the states of Washington and Oregon and for military bases in the Northwest and Alaska. He was a licensed low-voltage electrician and had employees working in Richland and the Seattle area. Brian loved to improve his skills by talking with other people, reading trade magazines, and attending company seminars about their products. He was excited recently that business was beginning to rebound after the slowdown during the pandemic. Brian always provided excellent customer service, just as he did as a teenager when he delivered the Chicago Tribune by putting the newspaper behind the storm door and, of course, received thanks and nice tips! He was very personable and had so many friends. Brian loved talking to people and everyone liked Brain.
He often helped others by providing job training and by assisting many other people with their problems. Brian loved going to the family cabin in northern Wisconsin where he enjoyed boating, fishing, and chain saws. He is survived by his daughter, Megan Lindsey Greenwood, his parents Margaret and Larry Greenwood, his sister Susan Margaret Galbraith, brother-in-law Mathew Galbraith, and niece Matilda Rose Galbraith. Brian was loved by three women in his life and spent many years being a loving and protective husband to Nicole Skyles, Carlea Summers and partner to Erika Young. They shared many years each listening to his laughter and watching him treat everyone like they were the only people in the room.
Einan’s Funeral Home is in charge of services. Sunday March 21, Viewing at 1PM, Celebration of life 2PM, and interment to follow at 3:00PM.
From day one Brian was always willing to help and educate those around him. Many times he helped with projects I was working on and always did so with a friendly disposition despite being competitors. I cant think of a time where he has turned someone away who was needing his expertise, ear, or general help. Brian enjoyed his cars and always enjoyed showing off his newest vehicles over the years. I am glad that I got to meet him, he will be missed.

Rest in peace, Brian.
I met Brian many years ago. Probably when he was first really getting into video services. We teamed up on quite a few shows and a number of projects. I always really enjoyed talking with Brian and the conversations were never short. He called me a few months back just to see how we were doing with all the shows cancelling and offered to help find ways to rent or use some of our inventory if that would would be beneficial. Brian was passionate about what he did and was always willing to help people out. You will be missed, my friend.
Brian was a generous person that was always willing to offer advice to me. I appreciated his friendship and knowing the impact he made on the music community. He was gone too soon.
You will be missed Brian.
Met Brian back in 1999. We did a lot of business together and became good friends over the years. Brian’s ❤️ is one for all of us to look up to. He recorded and played music for our weddings. Will be missing, but not forgotten. Rest my friend!
I will always remember how Brian engaged everyone wearing his heart on a his sleeve and always put the needs of others before himself.
Brian…you will always have a special place in my heart and wish you eternal peace my friend…
A stand up guy who enlightened everyone he came into contact with. May God bless him as he did with everyone.
Brian was one of the nicest persons I have ever met. Had a great personality and was one of the good guys!
I was saddened to read that Brian passed away. I graduated with Brian from Hanford High School, and I remember him well. He was such a nice and thoughtful person. I remember hanging out with him one evening at his house in Richland playing pool and listening to The Doors. May you find peace, strength, and comfort in this most difficult time.
I am so very sorry you all have lost Brian. I was fortunate to meet Brian and his family when he and his sister were students at Hanford High School. What a great young man, and so very talented! He was an accomplished businessman even in high school. We chose Brian’s Radioactive Music for many family events over the years and I always loved seeing him and catching up.
My heart goes out to you, and I know he will always be with you and everyone who knew and loved him.
