I treasure all the things you taught me. My favorite memories are building a rubber band powered car, an electric motor, and a container to protect an egg from a tower drop. My first video game was a word processor and I still use what it taught me today. I still use many of your hand tools and everytime I hold them I think of you. You are the smartest man I have ever known am I proud to be your son. I love you always.
I loved you John and I will miss you.
You were my buddy for many years.
May you Rest In Peace
Bobby and I are so glad we had the pleasure of knowing you.
May you Rest In Peace
Bobby and Paulette
You will be missed Johnny. I’m glad I got to experience “country boy living” when we’d get to stay with you as kids. My Dad and I sure enjoyed our road trips to Lake Kiowa to stay with you and Nancy.
Hugs and prayers for the family.
I didn’t know Mr. Bryan but knowing his son, David, he must’ve been a great man. My thoughts and prayers go up for the family for his loss.
