Brian J. Mackelprang, loving son, brother and uncle succumbed to a long battle with cancer
on January 28, 2019. Brian was born on November 8, 1957, in Boulder City, NV and grew up in Henderson, NV. Brian enjoyed learning – he went to Dixie College in St. George, UT. and then he earned an Associates degree in Electronics at Utah Valley University in Provo, UT. He loved the challenge of working on and fixing any kind of electronics. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Tampa, FL. He was dedicated to the church and was always willing to help others. He was the shipping manager at The Blind Center of Nevada before he could no longer work due to his illness.
Brian is survived by his parents William and Helen, sisters Connie (Rod) Hicken, Deanna (Tim) Melton and brothers Gary (Jeanetta), Craig (Dawn) and Eric (Sheila) Mackelprang. And many nieces and nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews that he loved to tease and to make laugh.
Services will be on Saturday, February 9 at 11:00am, with the viewing held before at 10:00am. Both will be held at the Treeline LDS Chapel, 2285 Treeline Dr. Las Vegas.
