    I’m sorry to hear of Bryan’s passing. My sincere condolences to all his loved ones. He worked with my brother many years ago, and he witnessed the horrible accident that killed him. I’m quite sure he carried that in his heart all these years, as probably most that were there that day. He was kind to me when I encountered him, and some how let me know he held my brothers memory. I’m sure he realized how much each day mattered.

    I really hate to hear this. I've know Bryan since we were little kids, growing up on Vine st. It's true, he could fix about anything. So many memories. God bless his soul.
