    Brian Alan Waronker passed away on December 29, 2017 in Atlanta, GA. He was 24 years old. Brian was born on July 28, 1993 in Atlanta to Steve and Mitzi Waronker.

Coles College of Business at Kennesaw State University in 2016. He was employed by Halpern Enterprises, Inc. as a Research Analyst where he was building a successful commercial real estate career. Brian was an extraordinary young man who will be deeply missed. To know him was to love him as he was exceptionally charismatic with a gift to make people laugh. His heart was as big as his 6’3” frame, and he had a deep passion for all things family, friends and Georgia football.

    We knew Brian mostly from Murphey Candler Little League where our 2 sons played baseball. Brian had that trademark Waronker look along with a geat smile and unique personality and it was fun watching him grow up & develop as a ball player and popular teammate. Sending our thoughts & prayers to all of the family from The Glazers...

  • Andy Levison

    Although I've known Brian for years from growing up with Jeff, we really had gotten close over the past year. Guarding each other twice a week at basketball and working out together another 1-2 times a week at the gym, I got to see just what a special guy B-Wank was. It was truly impossible not to like him. I'm gonna miss you on the court. We'll continue our post-move lessons one day.
