Kees, Bryon D.

Bryon married Catherine J. Stilp on April 29, 1990 in Stockbridge.
For over 25 years, Bryon worked at Stockbridge Engineering where he diligently worked hard and accomplished any task he was asked to do.
He was truly a 'Jack of all Trades' and amazed everyone with the working knowledge he possessed about everything. He remodeled and built the addition to his house brick by brick from the basement up, loving every moment knowing his work and skill was a gift from God.
He was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, and the Brothertown Fishing Club. He was an avid outdoorsman; loving each instant of hunting, fishing, and ice fishing with the group. He was known on the lake as 'Simple Simon', traveling from location to location with his wife, 'Simon Says' looking for the most bites. He was a kind and loving man; giving of himself fully to those he loved.
