A remembrance gathering will be held from 12-3 p.m. on Sept. 24 at the Deer Park Veterans of Foreign Wars Post Home, E29 First St. for Michael T. “Mike” Bryan, who passed away on Sept. 16.
He served in the U.S. Navy, and later returned to service in the U.S. Army.
He was an avid reader and storyteller. He was also a craftsman and nature enthusiast who was affectionately referred to as a “Renaissance Man.”
He is survived by four daughters, Karen, Jamie, Jackie and Pamela; two sisters, Diana and Patricia; grandchildren; and extended family.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations that promote inspiration through biking or other learning activities for children.
