Brian Tanner

March 6, 1962 ~ June 22, 2022 (age 60)


Brian Scott Tanner 60, entered into rest on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at the Hillcrest Medical Center in Cleveland following a brief illness. Brian was born on March 6, 1962 in Warren, Ohio to parents Charles and Grace (Ritch) Tanner. 


Brian was a 1979 graduate of Lakeview High School and a 1981 graduate of Lewis, Weinberger & Hill

School of Cosmetology.  Brian passed his Ohio State Cosmetology Exam in 1981 and began his career

as a hair stylist at David’s Designers of Hair in Warren.  He also worked at Orr-Dell’s in Niles, The Place to

Be and Flo’s in Cortland.  While working at the hair trade during the day, Brian pursued

his passions for magic and music at night.  He was a skilled magician and spent his entire life perfecting

his techniques.  He also joined TNT Playhouse, first in behind the scenes work, and later became a

performer.  His love of music led him to becoming a DJ and his Karaoke shows were popular at

a number of local venues.   Brian was an entertainer at heart.


He realized his life-long dream of living in California settling in the Fresno area and joining the Fresno

Magic Club.  While he enjoyed his time there, he came back home to Cortland in 2019 and lived there

until his death.


He is survived by his brothers, Robert and Paul of Cortland, his sister, Betsy Tanner of Warren and his beloved

cat, Lenny.


Private Memorial Services will be held.
