You shared everything you had, with everyone you knew - - and now it looks like you finally got to wear those wings you've earned a million times over down here. When I remember you, it will be in gladness, not sadness - - because we are all that much smarter, sweeter, and stronger for having had you in our lives. Our family's thoughts and prayers are with you and yours, but this is not a goodbye - - because in our hearts, Bryan, you will live on forever.

At the Rat, He had the smile to charm, and the muscles to harm. If you were fool enough to cause his smile to wane, you probably deserved to feel his muscles cause you pain....R I P Bryan

He taught me how to tend bar, how to work a room, how to know the regulars and treat them right. He was a hilarious man, larger than life, a good leader, and I'm glad I had the chance to know him. Rest in Power, Bryan.

Bryan was a gentle giant, a friendly presence behind the bar but if trouble broke out he was right there. The punk rock crowd knew he was on our side - he had our backs. Spent many a good time with Bryan behind the bar or at the door, my condolences to his children, friends and family. Gone way too young...
