Bryan was born on October 8th, 1974, in Mitchell, SD to Dale and Gail Byre. He attended high school in Mason City, IA and graduated in 1993. He then attended NIACC in Mason City for a short term. He then went on to work at several different businesses, eventually making a career working on billboards for the past 22 years at Lamar Advertising in Des Moines, IA. He was united in marriage to Stacy (Avise) Vasquez in 2001, and later divorced.
He enjoyed drag racing his Dodge Demon, gardening, cooking, and spending time with his dogs Gunner and Dixie. He also enjoyed going to South Dakota to pheasant hunt with his dad, brothers, and cousins. The trips were all memorable, though not always productive, as sometimes the pheasants refused to cooperate.
He is survived by his mother, Gail Byre of Mason City, his brother Dean (Ra’Londa) of Lincoln, NE, his brother Jesse (Holly) of Mason City, his nephews Dillon and Kasin, special friend Brenda Jones and best bud Chad Osegera.
Bryan was preceded in death by his father Dale, his big brother Brett, sister Laurel, both sets of Grandparents, cousin Wade Byre, and great friend Matt Ward.
