Brian M. Bergschneider, 47, of Taylorville passed away at 3:43p.m. on Monday, July 9, 2018 in his home.  He was born on May 19, 1971 in Hillsboro, Illinois.  Brian graduated from the Witt High School in 1989 and went on to serve in the U.S. Army.  He was very proud of his time in the service and was active during the Desert Storm period and was stationed in Berlin, Germany, Afghanistan, and Kuwait.  Brian worked as a manager at GSI in both Taylorville and Assumption.  He enjoyed fishing, hunting, riding his motorcycle, and couldn’t start a day without his cup of Casey’s coffee.  More than anything, Brian adored his children.  He was always eager to talk about them any chance he had.
