During that time he was promoted to a Scheduler and Planner, then later into the Operation Training Department. In 2002, Bryan began a career with Dow Chemical in Plaquemine, LA, as a Maintenance Coordinator and worked in that capacity until illness caused an early retirement in March of 2011.
In 2001, Bryan was elected 1st Justice of the Peace and proudly served the citizens of Assumption Parish in that capacity until his passing. He was also appointed to the Assumption Parish Water Board representing Ward 1 and served on the board until his passing. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council and was a 3rd degree Knight.
Bryan lived life to the fullest and made every moment count. He loved to hunt and has traveled to many states across America in search of the mythical "30 point buck". He has had many interests and hobbies throughout the years and is known as a "Jack of All Trades" Bryan was frugal and respected the life that God had blessed him with.
He has generously helped countless people throughout his life and touched the hearts of many. This kindness and generosity has been given back throughout the past 16 months by many random acts of kindness, love, and prayer from family, friends, and strangers.,
We cannot possibly thank everyone enough for their compassion and support in our family's time of need. We would also like to thank the Lord above for blessing us with the life of Bryan.
