Celebration of Life at a later date

Brian Vincent Parnell

June 22, 2002 - March 18, 2021

Age 18, of White Bear Lake, passed away on March 18, 2021.
Brian will be dearly missed by his large and loving family. He was a beloved son, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend. Brian made the brave choice to be a donor and was able to gift the hope of life to multiple families.


He was always quick with a hug and never shy to say I love you. He had an inquisitive mind and was always interested in someone's perspective and personal experience.

He was preceded in death by his sister Lianne.


He is survived by his parents, Mike and Jan Parnell, 12 sisters, 5 brothers and 24 nieces and nephews.


In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to the family.


A celebration of life will be held this summer.


Special thanks to the entire critical care staff at Regions and the LifeSource transplant team.
