Bryan was an active member of South Orlando Kiwanis for more than 20 years holding

right place at the right time and he was frequently helping strangers with a tow, gas, a
little bit of cash or the use of his jumper cables. In addition, he, and several others,
rescued 2 men in a car fire, from an accident on I-4. The act of bravery earned him The
Carnegie Medal in recognition of an outstanding act of heroism and The Dr. P Phillips
Foundation award.

Matthew Cook, Casey Cook, Phillip Layton Jr., Robert Layton, Mason Belcher, Amy
Willsey, Hannah Cymny (her husband Patrick), Benjamin Willsey (his wife Mackenzie),

Bryan was quick with a joke and enjoyed hunting, cooking, tending his orange groves,
classical music and being with family. He will be deeply missed.
