As reported, Road Rules alum Brian Lancaster, 43, died last month. As told by the Chester County Coroner’s office, Lancaster died on 29th March. Currently, his death is under investigation and the authorities are not releasing further details at the present time.
The MTV star’s family told that he was found dead in his Pennsylvania home. They believe it was because of heart failure, as he had the history of arrhythmia. The family even told that the death was unrelated to alcohol or drugs and, as far as they know, no substances were discovered in the house.
Lancaster was seen in the seventh season of the MTV reality series, Road Rules: Latina America, in 1999. Although he did not take home the 43,000 dollars prize, he competed against five other contestants in 13 “missions” that happened in Mexico, Costa Rica and the U.S.
In an obituary posted online, he was described by his loved ones as a “jack of all trades” who, in addition to the reality television also worked as an advertising account manager, special education teacher, telecommunications project manager, and bartender. The obituary read, “A spiritual explorer, dreamy stargazer, inquisitive world traveler and barstool philosopher who enjoyed a good mind meld, Brian excelled at being a human being instead of human doing.” Further, it read, “Constant in his spirit and soul, he would share possessions, thoughts and every part of his essence with anyone who came into his orbit.” He “never knew a stranger and was a connoisseur and collector of an eclectic assortment of friends ranging from 18-97. He was a consummate hugger, professional cuddler, iconoclast and master bulls—er who was extremely accident prone. Ever the authority shirker he was well-known for crossing lines and pushing the envelope.” The obituary even describes Lancaster as a “tall-taled fisherman, free skier extraordinaire, daredevil skateboarder and ferocious backyard gardener.”
Lancaster is survived by his parents, Dennis and Carol Lancaster, his fiancée, Sarah J. Bell, and Reagan, his ever-faithful canine sidekick/companion/and psychologist, with whom he became whole when he rescued her.
In accordance with the obituary, in lieu of flowers, the family of Lancaster has asked that memorial contributions be made in his name to a no-kill animal shelter, Brandywine Valley SPCA, in his hometown of West Chester, Pennsylvania, where he adopted Reagan.
