Bryan, no words can express the way I feel, I'm heartbroken. You fought the good fight, what a warrior. You always had the best and brigbtest smile on your face when I used to walk in the door. For the short while I worked with you Downtown, we made a good team! You were firm yet funny with all the staff and everyone really loved working with you. You had the most amazing personality, were hard working, an amazing father and friend. Our family will miss you very much but will find comfort knowing that you will be in a place where there is no pain, sorrow or suffering. Au revoir till we meet again. We love you.

I had the pleasure of knowing Bryan, personally and professionally, when I was a server and he was a manager at Mellow Mushroom back in the mid 2000's. He’s the best pizza cook i’ve ever known, an excellent manager, and one of the friendliest, cool, calm, and collected people i’ve ever met.
Once, during an extremely busy lunch rush, customers were coming in non-stop, ticket orders were being printed out in the kitchen at a furious pace, and all hell looked like it could break loose. I glanced at Bryan in terror, basically, lol, but he just flashed a big grin and stated “ No worries, we’ve got THIS!” His confidence in what we could accomplish as a team became infectious, and we all stepped up our game to have one of the best lunches we ever had.
Whether it was talking about food, the outdoors, pop culture, or family, he had great stories and amazing insight. I am honored to have known him and now call him a dear friend in spirit.

It’s too late to say goodbye. We loved you and the inviting restaurant you created where strangers like us could become part of a family. You included us in all the fun times and we loved you dearly. Of course we wished for a different outcome. But it was not meant to be. You leave behind two loving children who will always remember how you fought for them. And countless young people that learned by example how to be the best. You were truly special and we will miss you but never forget you. 😥
