It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Bryan James.
Bryan was known for his incredible sense of humor and knowing how to enter a room. He was silly and always had a way of making everyone around him laugh. He was a strong man that would do anything for his family, that even through hard times loved them with every ounce of his being. It has never been a secret that Bryan struggled throughout his life and that things didn’t always go according to plan for him, but throughout that time he fought hard and never lost the core of who he was.
Bryan stayed a loving father, son, and brother, no matter the circumstances. Although he had a way of driving his mom and dad crazy when he came home, he still found a way of building memories and leaving them many stories to tell! Bryan was always a form of support to ensure that the mother of his children Stacey, always stayed grounded with the kids. Reminded her to allow for candy on cereal sometimes and to not take life so seriously, but to take those moments in, and to give love to his kids enough for both of them!
Bryan had ambitions of doing great things in life, he prayed, he dreamed, and he hoped. He always wanted to share his story, never wanted to see another person walk his path, and find a way to leave a footprint in this world. Bryan certainly left a footprint! This footprint may not be designed in the way that he had hoped, but he shared his story and his passions that will then be passed down to not only his children but will be told to others for him! A life that was led by Bryan was a lonely one for him, but he always understood the distance that needed to be made from his loved ones and he made it a mission throughout this path to fight for his change. Bryan did well periodically and found health and hope, but ultimately lost his fight.
Bryan will be deeply missed by his father Robert, his mother Barbara, brothers Rick (Tammy), Robert (Melissa), Tim (Henry), his daughter Ivy, the mother of his children Stacey and their children Shay and Evan, along with the children he held deeply in his heart Kyla and Ally, his nephews and nieces, and extended family.
Bryan didn’t always feel that he accomplished great things, but his life tells an incredible story that will be shared. This story will allow for growth, healing, and change. With hope, his story will change lives and that is forever a great thing!
His peace that was forever being searched for has now been found...sleep well...and forever more be our angel.
