Brian was born on May 5, 1981, in Muscatine, Iowa, to Mark Harrington and Susan (Spinden) Harrington.

He grew up in Toledo and graduated from Cedar Rapids High School. While in high school, Brian was in a severe car accident. After almost a year in hospitals, the doctors had put Humpty Dumpty back together again. His struggles with the lingering effects of his injuries defined his life, however his heart and mind defined him. He loved to expand his knowledge, could make a guitar sing, and gave to others what he couldn’t give to himself.

He is survived by his parents, Mark and Sue Harrington of Tama, Sue and Dan McWhinney of Marion; his brother, Brad (Amber) Harrrington of Garwin; his grandfather, Lew Taylor of Clive; three nieces, Madison Halverson, and Cambry and Cali Harrington; two uncles, Dan (Mary) Harrington of Des Moines, and Pete (Cindi) Spinden of Nashville, TN; and his step brothers and cousins.
