He was a member of the LDS Church, and attended the Spencer First Ward in Magna, Utah. Bryan loved his children, and delighted in their accomplishments. He loved cars of all kinds, fishing, board games and playing cards. He was a great helper to his mother, friends and family. Bryan met and conquered many challenges placed before him with a grin.
