Bryan A. Downs

Shelby - Bryan A. Downs, 59, of Shelby, passed away Wednesday morning, July 11, 2018, at Crestwood Care Center following a long battle with Alzheimer's dementia and pancreatic cancer. He was born November 14, 1958, in Mansfield, Ohio, to Gerald E. and Gloria J. (Riley) Downs.

Bryan was a happy-go-lucky kind of man and you couldn't help but admire his ability to find the good in any given situation. His compassion for others was matched only by his hard working lifestyle. He was formerly employed as a medical lab technician and made many friends over the years. He also worked at Haring Realty for many years.

Being outside in nature was what made Bryan happiest. He enjoyed snow skiing, water skiing and scuba diving. He had no fear and would willingly try new activities. Bryan had a green thumb and enjoyed tending to his vegetable garden.

He is survived by three sons, Travis Downs, Tyler (Corry) Downs and Kerrigen Ellenberger; six grandsons, Jordan (Katie) Downs, Christian, Carter, Walter, Dalton, and Cooper Downs; one great-granddaughter, Oakley; a sister, Linda (Daniel) Krizan of Mansfield; his step mother, Barbara Downs; and three step siblings, Kris (Larry) Smith, Paul (Elaine) Brown and Tim Brown.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Gerald and Gloria Downs.

Private services will be held at a later date. He will be laid to rest in Mansfield Memorial Park. Memorial contributions may be made to OhioHealth Hospice, 335 Glessner Avenue, Mansfield, OH 44903. The Ontario Home of Wappner Funeral Directors is privileged to serve.
