Sharon and family: My most heartfelt condolences to you during this sad time. Bryan was such an able volunteer and gave so much back to his community. I worked with him on the Michael's Bay Historical Society in the formation and early days of the organization. Through this I got to know Bryan better and was always so impressed by his dedication to the task at hand and how he always was so committed to any task that he undertook. He always went above and beyond and it was obvious that he thoroughly enjoyed what he was doing. May it comfort you to know that he was so much appreciated by many people that he came into contact with. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time of loss.

Dear Sharon, Terri Lee, Deone, Sarah and Heather, our very sincere though belated condolences on your loss of your beloved and oh-so-much-fun husband and father - many memories of cruising with "mom and dad" in the station wagon and fun times at the Gleason home, and my English teacher, Mr. Gleason. I've been reliving some memories via Deone's facebook photos as well, and thinking of you all. xoxo
