Bryan will be so missed! Spyder rides won't be quite the same without our dear, sweet friend. RIP

We will miss Bryan so much on our Spyder rides and other areas of our lives. He never got lost when he was leading us! He was a kind, sweet man and would always help us with anything we needed. His love of good food and sharing it is a favorite memory we have. RIP Bryan, you are so missed!

My condolences to Lynda and the rest of his family. I knew Bryan from his days of running nitrogen for Weatherford (I worked on Bearcat Drilling rigs 3 and 2) back around the 2003 to 2005 timeframe. He was always great to work with because he knew his stuff and had a kind demeanor about him.
Any time I would see him aside from work he was good to visit with.
He was a good man.

Bryan and I always appreciated having a glass of good whiskey and BS'ing about guns and hunting.
