Brian O'Connell passed away peacefully in Boston, Massachusetts, surrounded by his loving mother, Ms. Micheline de Bievre and other family members. Brian was born on October 5, 1965 in Pasadena, California. In 1971, his father was appointed Professor in Geophysics at Harvard University, which took the family to Boston, Massachusetts. Brian attended Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, graduating in 1983 and went on to earn a BA of Arts in Japanese history in 1987 at the University of California, Berkeley, California. He began his professional career with Mitsubishi Corporation in 1988 in New York, and his last post was as Category Manager with Halliburton from 2000 to 2015. Brian's career with both Mitsubishi and Halliburton took him all over the world and he made numerous friends over the years. He never met a stranger and touched many lives. He loved life and enjoyed it until his final days. He will be sorely missed and will live in the hearts of many. He is survived by his mother Micheline, his first-cousin Xavier Badoux, and his aunt Christiane.
