Varian Julius Brien-Crooked Arm, 25, went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 6, 2021. Aákchiishaa Iiseesh (Watches from the side) was born on July 16, 1995, to Vera & Myers Brien Sr. in Crow Agency, MT. He was later adopted and raised by his maternal grandparents Mary & Vincent CrookedArm. Varian went to Pretty Eagle Catholic School then later attended Hardin Middle/High School. He received his GED at the Montana Youth Challenge Academy in 2010. He was a shy but very funny guy once he was comfortable with you. He always had a smile on his face and a joke to tell. You could always count on him for a good word of advice. He was an outgoing man, always willing to lend a hand, no matter who you were. Varian met Ronnie LaForge and had three adorable babies, Valayna, Taylor, and Braydon whom were his pride and joy, he was absolutely in love with his children. He was a great dad and the best uncle to all the kids. He enjoyed staying in Crow at his kaala Gladyce in his “sugar shack”. Varian, your family, kids & brothers will miss you!
