BrianMooneyA few months ago, I wrote some posts about Brian Mooney, who worked at the Dallas Eagle and was suffering from colon cancer. A few days ago, he was transferred to Hospice care. I heard within the hour that he has died. Here’s the message:

Dear Eagle family and friends: It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that our beloved doorman Brian Mooney left this life a short while ago. We all hoped for a miracle that he would beat his colon cancer, but sadly it was not meant to be. He was a valued employee of the Dallas Eagle and a dear friend to a lot of our staff and customers. Our front door will not be the same without him. As much as it pains us to let him go, he is now free of the great pain that these last few months had brought him. As soon as we know more about funeral arrangements we will pass the information on to all of you. The Eagle will be sending flowers once more details are known. We can talk more this weekend about doing some kind of memorial or celebration of his life once we know what his friends and family have planned.

Brian may be gone, but he will always be part of the Eagle family. Every time we walk in the bathroom or past the jail bars display in the front of the bar we will pass Brian’s artwork. It is a testament to the wonderfully funny and creative man that he was. Our condolences go out to his family and his partner, may they find peace in knowing Brian is in a better place.
