Brian Frank Molgano, 31, of East Windsor, CT passed away Saturday, June 20, 2020 from injuries sustained when he was struck by a car. Born November 15, 1988 in Bristol, Connecticut, Brian was the beloved son of Cindy and Frank Molgano.

Brian graduated with honors from Lewis S. Mills High School in Burlington, Connecticut where he was a competitive swimmer on his school team. He was an active outdoorsman in Boy Scout Troop 23 where he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Brian graduated from the University of Connecticut with a B.S in Mechanical Engineering and pursued a career in software development and production planning in the aerospace industry.

Brian had an ability to tell stories and to understand the world around him in a unique and often hilarious way. He was an avid mountain biker, skier, disc golfer, hiker and top player of League of Legends. His favorite place and pastime were the annual family vacation to Cape May Beach in NJ where he would spend the day body surfing and building sand castles with his brother and sister. He was an excellent cook and enjoyed making many difficult dishes from a variety of cultures, Pho being one of his favorites.

An entrepreneur at heart, Brian started a home baked apple pie business, was an innovative eBay reseller, tinkered with mechanical contraptions of all manner, and wrote programs to automate and optimize business processes. Upon meeting him, people were often struck by his thought-provoking insights and kindness.

Brian is survived by his mother and father, Cindy Shay Molgano and Frank A. Molgano III of Burlington, CT; sister and brother-in-law, Jennifer Molgano-Tham and Michael Tham of Brooklyn Heights, NY; brother Jeffrey Molgano of Boston, MA; paternal grandfather, Frank A. Molgano Jr. of Dorset, VT; aunt Pamela Shay Clark of Kalispell, MT; uncle Robert Shay of Barrington, IL; uncle Glen Molgano of Grandville, NY; uncle Gregory Molgano of Reading, VT; and the many other great aunts; great uncles; cousins, and friends who loved him dearly.

A private graveside service will be held Saturday, June 27, 2020, at Burlington Center Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the United Way of Central and Northeastern Connecticut, 30 Laurel Street, Hartford, CT 06106 or at

Brian was my nephew. His 31 years went by way too fast. My most vivid memories of Brian were from his childhood years when he traveled to Vermont to visit us several times per year. I remember Brian as being a blond-haired little boy with a mischievous grin who was a bit skittish around dogs (or at least my dog, anyway). I remember having fun with Brian building fortifications out of couch cushions and then bombarding them with miscellaneous objects as we wrought havoc in his grandparent’s living room. I remember Brian being there to help me celebrate my high school graduation. I remember how much joy Brian brought to his grandmother during every visit. I remember how, as Brian grew up and matured into a young adult, his relationship with his grandfather grew ever closer; if anyone was willing to listen to his grandfather’s Ad-Master sales pitch with enthusiasm, it was Brian. While Brian ultimately outgrew his blond hair, one thing he never outgrew was his family; adulthood never stood in the way of carrying on the tradition of family getaways or family get togethers, which is truly a testament to the loving, highly-involved, and super supportive parents, sister, and brother that he was lucky to have. I will remember Brian for a lot of things, not the least of which was the affable, easygoing man who marched to his own drummer that he grew into being.

Thanks for all the good memories, Brian. You will be missed.

I’m so terribly sad to hear of Brian’s passing. We shared so many wonderful experiences together. From the start of our friendship at UConn, where we instantly clicked, to becoming roommates, to working at IMCORP together, and beyond, Brian was one of my closest friends. It is a friendship I will always cherish.

Brian and I enjoyed talking for hours and hours about so many things — work, life, relationships, business ideas. He was incredibly smart and had an amazing mind with such interesting ideas and perspectives. Ever the engineer, Brian was often perfecting a dish, automating some workflow or coming up with business ideas. Our minds resonated at the same wavelength — to talk with him was for one of us to start a sentence and then for the other person to jump three steps forward and then to continue leapfrogging each other from there. We communicated practically telepathically; so much was conveyed in simply a look. I’ve never connected with anybody else like I did with him, I will greatly miss that.

When we were separated by distance, Brian and I connected over videogames, and when we were near, we did all kinds of activities together — skiing, hiking, mountain biking, exercising in the gym. We always dreamed together about taking a road trip across the US and in 2015 we actually did it, spending 6 weeks on the road creating memories that will live with me forever.

I am very thankful that through Brian I have had the wonderful opportunity to get to know much of the warm Molgano family, who have always been so welcoming and kind to me. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I extend my deepest sympathies and offer my support in any way I can.

I will miss Brian dearly. Rest in peace my friend.

Dear Molgano Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Brian’s passing. I taught Brian in 10th grade at LSM. He was a smart and courteous young man.

May your memories bring you comfort.

With Deepest Sympathy,

Words seem like such a two-dimensional device to describe someone as multi-faceted as Brian. We have such fond memories of our family get-togethers at Cape May: long walks on the beach, frisbee games, body surfing, reading, endless discussing, rinsing the sand off with a swim in the pool, star gazing after the sun went down, and always lots of food, whether from Cindy’s magic cooler or whatever restaurant we landed at once the beach activities were done for the day. We all enjoyed talking with Brian – he was a really good listener. He had a gentle demeanor and an air of kindness and patience toward others that was touching. There was a 12-year age gap between Brian and our youngest son yet Brian actively engaged him in whatever the “kids” were up to and made him feel included. It is ridiculously painful to contemplate a world without him in it. We grieve with you, dear Molgano family.
