It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you of the unexpected passing of drum Sgt Brian Conry. Brian was a very integral part of the Stockyards for many many years. Brian was a huge part of our family. There are not many events that Brian missed so if you saw the Stockyards out and about you most likely saw him. He was an amazing guy with a huge heart and loved being a part of the band. Brian started with the band at a very young age, and we don't think that he missed too many Friday practices in his career. This is not only a huge loss to us but a huge loss to the bagpipe and drum community as a whole.
Brian, we will miss your laugh and your smile. Your playing was stellar and you were such an amazing person to be around. Thank you for all you have done with the Stockyards and we are glad that we got to be a part of your life and that you were a part of ours. We will miss you very much, but we know you will be looking down upon us!

Brian Conry, Drum Sergeant of the Stock Yard Kilty Band..a fantastic drummer and was the core of our Drum Section. He was one of my best friends. He was truly a good man. He meant what he said and said what he meant.
Brian, have no idea how much i will miss you. -Drum Sgt Dave Mckee Jr
