Wall, Bryan C.
Bryan Charles Wall, age 68, of Black Rock, Connecticut, beloved husband of Arlene Wall, passed away peacefully in his home in the arms of his son Saturday, March 21, 2015 following a courageous battle with ALS. Born in Hitchin-Herts, England, the son of the late Charles Edward and Dorothy Ellen Wall, he had been an area resident since 1974. He was employed as a Senior Account Manager for GE Information Services from 1974 to 1988 and thereafter became immersed in antiques and collectibles specializing in antique toys. He was the proprietor of Toys of Yesteryear Shop in Fairfield, where he enjoyed entertaining fellow collectors and dealers in the shop which was filled with a wondrous assortment of childhood memories. Over the years, Bryan enjoyed riding his moped around his Fairfield Beach neighborhood, taking grand and often eventful road trips in his beloved Buick Roadmaster, and becoming an avid Ebay seller of all sorts of amazing objects. He was a devoted husband and father who delighted in time spent with his family and will best be remembered for his unique sense of humor, kindness, and genuine interest in everyone he met. Survivors in addition to his wife Arlene include two loving sons, Alex Wall of Portland, OR and Chas Wall of Stamford; a brother Alan Wall of Bristol, England; sisters in law Lee Ratta and Helen Wall; nephew Michael Ratta and niece Kirsty Wall. A celebration of Bryan's life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the ALS Association, Connecticut Chapter, 4 Oxford Road Unit E4, Milford, CT 06460, or to the Hospital for Special Care Neuromuscular Clinic, 2150 Corbin Avenue, New Britain, CT 06053.

Dear Arlene, Alex & Chas,
Bryan's quirky sense of humor, on top of his accent, was the first thing that came to my mind! Such a kind, gentle man willing to help others if he could. Hold on to those wonderful memories you all have of a great husband and dad and hoping that time will bring comfort and peace to your hearts.
