Starting in the 1980's, Bryan spent a lot of time dabbling in computers. He used these skills to personalize funeral services by making commemorative videos to include still photos and music.

He was known for "going the extra mile" to provide the families he served with a personalized and meaningful experience.
Bryan was a member of two different Barbershop Quartets during his years in Snyder County where he was lovingly called “Digger”. He enjoyed singing with them for local organizations and churches.

Plowing snow and cutting grass were among his favorite ways to spend time. Bryan always had a project he was working on. Those projects included flipping homes, remodeling his own home and maintenance on his various rental units. He truly loved to stay busy.
Bryan was involved with Boy Scouts and Softball Teams. He mentored several young people, including his nephews and their friends who came to visit him during his final days and were able to share stories of the impact he had on their lives.
