I knew Jack because i used to work parties for his second wife and many of her friends mostly NANA Allis
one time i came to their home on bridge lane and i walked into the gargage and saw a man on a ladder and asked him if Mrs Bryson was home and to my surprise it was Mr. Bryson and from that day forward i alwasy called him Mrs Brysons handy man

He was the most charming and friendly person and treated all people with kindness and respect
he was truely a gentleman and i am so happy i had the honor of knowing him

to make 100 is a great feat i know you will miss him but what great memories you must have

The Bryson family arrived on our block of Kent Avenue, WFB, to the delight of all the kids on the block! We loved them all, and we remember "Mr. Bryson" as a very kind man, who loved his tennis! We rejoice that his children and grandchildren were able to know him over a wonderful, long life. My memories will remain strong.
