My condolences to Bryce’s family. Bryce was the hardest working and most caring employee I have ever had. He was a wonderful person. My thoughts are with your family.

Dearest Vandervoort family, Your sweet family is forever interwoven in the memories of my childhood in New Jersey and the Fardale Ward. I remember youth firesides at your house, the many callings you all served the ward through and especially when Bryce was born. What a cute and precious boy! So much love and care you all gave to him and so much love and happiness he brought to everyone. I wish I had the pleasure of knowing knowing him as an adult.
I know your hearts ache indescribably at his departure from your presence, but I also know of your strong faith in our Heavenly Father's plan. May His Spirit comfort you and the hugs and prayers of those who love you console you.

Bryce was a friendly and faithful young man. He was such a patriot who stood up for what he believed in and any time I saw him, he made me smile. I am heartbroken about his death and my love and condolences go out to Dirk and June. Praying for you and your family.

To Bryce's loved ones,

I'll always remember the gymnasium at school being covered in a huge sheet of paper that stretched the length of the basketball court for all of us to write messages to Bryce when he was in the hospital. There wasn't one person who had a bad word to say about him then, and I'm sure the same holds true now. The last time I saw him was at the Stop 'n' Shop in Franklin Lakes years after we graduated IHHS and he was just as sweet and kind as I remembered him as a kid.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

With love and deepest condolences,
Frannie Melville

Bryce, I am eternally grateful that I became your friend at Mesa Middle School. Our late afternoon discussions in my office will be my treasured memory of you. I know that your smile is now lighting up the Kingdom of God. Rest well in His Love and breathe with the angels.

To the Vandervoort family, I hope that you can temper your sadness with the truth that Bryce was truly a loving, faith-filled, humble servant of The Lord. He lived a simple, giving life that we all were privileged to witness. I hope to reflect some of his spirit in my life. My prayers are with all of you.

Bryce was always kind to me, Tayler, and Adalyn. Tayler & Adalyn enjoyed spending time with their Uncle Bryce on their trip to Colorado a few years ago. They talk about how much fun it was going to see him at work during his lunch break. Both kids adored him.
Heaven certainly gained a very sweet man. My condolences to all of the VanderVoort family. May God give you comfort & peace in the days and weeks ahead.

Bryce - Mesa Middle School will forever be grateful for your service and friendship. We thank you for helping make our learning environment special as every morning it looked like a brand new building that all could take pride in. The commitment to our young minds and staff was no different to that you gave to life. That smile and servant personality made you an incredible co-worker and friend to all - you will be missed but not forgotten. Breathe deep my friend!!

Our thoughts go out to all family and friends who were just as lucky as we were to have known Mr. VanderVoort.

Bryce, you have the kindest heart, the sweetest disposition and you’re one of the bravest people I’ve known. Growing up with you I always admired your quiet strength. To never complain and always have that sweet smile on your face. To know you now are breathing deep and healthy is all you ever deserved. You left a big mark on this world, you’ll be very missed my friend.

My Uncle Bryce,
I sit here and so many memories come to mind that I have not accessed in years. My childhood was AWESOME because of YOU!!! Calling you my uncle somehow doesn't seem right, you were more like a brother to us and honestly the best friend we could ever have as children. We would always have so much fun and although you were sick you did not complain. You took your daily chest poundings like a champion even as a teenager. You were always the perfect example of what it was like to be truly truly humble and blameless you never thought "why me." always chose to take the higher road and just live your life to the best of your abilities. Heaven truly gained a wonderful Christlike warrior. You can now breathe freely and are in no more pain. You put up such a good fight Bryce and we are all very proud of you and love you so much. I will miss you my uncle Bryce VanderVoort And I will never forget your wonderful LEGO creations (he would should have worked for LEGO building their masterpieces), I will never forget ping pong ball and speed ping pong ball having to run around the table, I’ll never forget playing that Nintendo track and field game where we always cheated and used our hands, sleepovers on the patio, Dairy Queen, spoons, your bird sprite, your rabbit, how you loved to garden and be around wildlife, always driving to the hospital, and how you always used to run so fast downstairs it’s as if you were picked up and you were floating. I love you. Till we meet again my Wonderful, Brave Uncle Bryce who always wanted to live, who never gave up and the man who was not afraid to die. I love you and I am really struggling with you being gone. I look forward to seeing you again my friend.
