Jones, David and Gail Hegar, and DeWayne Kerr.

Bryan was such a good friend to so many and would give you the shirt off his back. Bryan was a long-time member of St Paul’s Episcopal Church and the Downsville Volunteer Fire Department, currently serving as the President of the Board of Directors. He was known to have traveled the world, but regardless of where he was, Downsville was always in his heart and is where he calls home.

Special thanks to Dr. Zagrodzky, Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia and Annette Cheek with Barostim for giving us extra time with Bryan and allowing him to live life to the fullest.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making a donation to the Downsville VFD in memory of Bryan.
