Hi family, I am Bryan's friend from Superstition Sunrise in AZ. He was so dedicated to be true to his promise to God that he would help others. He was so helpful to me in many ways, like finding a lift for my 100 year old Mom and getting it installed before we got there, also finding the perfect ramp and installing it. He was so handy. He also helped me with my car that he seemed to love to work on,a and many other projects. But not only me but many others in the park.
We had great times because he was always so positive, and funny. He will be missed but because he knew Jesus as his Savior he is still having a great time. Glad he is healthy and whole now.
He was so proud of all of you. May you receive God's comfort and strength to carry on the way he would want you to.
Lovingly,. Patti Anderson

Jeff and I always enjoyed seeing Bryan when we came to NE to visit our daughter Charity, Birk and family. One of the first times we met Bryan was the week of Charity and Birk’s wedding. I remember Bryan always having such a friendly, outgoing personality and of course, always with a smile. My dad , Gregor Hanssen many times referred back to Charity and Birk’s rehearsal supper when he and Bryan grilled a lot of food. They got along from the first instant and had so much fun visiting, laughing and grilling . Jeff and I were always very happy that Bryan was there for Charity and Birk to help out and attend many special events, Birthdays etc that we couldn’t. We knew he loved our grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them. The last time we got to see Bryan was Fathers day in June. We will always remember the smell of his pipe as we are sure many who knew him will too. We pray for Gods strength, comfort and guidance for Bryan’s family and friends. He will certainly be missed.
