Bryan was a truly AMAZING person!! I got to know him over the years at the Y. It was because of Bryan I learned about the Y's Strong Kids Fund and enrolled my girls there for after school care. He will be missed tremendously. My thoughts are prayers go out to his wife, children and family.

Bryan was greatly loved and he loved well. He stated that Jesus had given him peace through various trials in his life and the strength of his wife's love had made an enormous impact on his life. So many of us are grieving over this loss. Kayme, you and the kiddos our in my heart and prayers. -Jaime
