Brian Kevin Ennis, 60, Bonners Ferry’s liveliest man and loving father and husband, was called home to Heaven on December 8, 2023. He died peacefully in his sleep, in his home, to be with our Heavenly Father and join his parents in the afterlife, Louis Goldstein and Aaron Goldstein, who preceded him in death. A Celebration of Life will be held after the holiday season for all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his loving wife, Carolyn Hogan, and his children; Chayce Ennis (wife Anjelica), Calleigh Kirkwood (husband Chase), and Aiden Ennis. He also had siblings, Jeff Ennis (wife Sandy) and Valerie Peterson, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Known for his larger-than-life personality, he had the ability to light up a whole room just by walking in. He always knew how to make a person laugh and had an unwavering love for his children and wife.
Before his time as a manager at Yoke’s, Brian traveled the country from coast to coast going to college. He would help troubled teens along his journey through life guiding people and helping them.
He was a traveler in so many ways, a nomad, larger than life, and inwardly intelligent with an amazing attitude towards life. We will always remember him as being athletic, fun loving, and a charismatic man with a personality larger than himself and his stories would always keep you around for more. He will be remembered fondly with love and laughter and missed so very much by his children, his friends, his wife, and his community.
