Obituary

John Kyle Bryan Jr., 93, of The Villages, FL, and formerly of East Glenville, NY died in the early morning of December 8, 2015.

Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, he was the son of John K. and Susan O. Bryan and brother to Robert Bryan, and half sisters to Martha Bryan Wiese and Dorothy Bryan Sweet.

He earned his Bachelor of Economics from the University of New Hampshire where he was an active member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. His education was briefly interrupted while he served as a Lieut. and pilot in the US Navy during WWII in the Photographic Intelligence Unit in the Asiatic Pacific Theatre.

Mr. Bryan lived in East Glenville for more than 50 years.  He was employed by the General Electric Company and the State of New York.  He was active in the Boy Scouts where he served as troop leader and earned the prestigious Silver Beaver Award.

His avocation for genealogy was a lifetime passion of compiling family history.  He published numerous articles and books on his research going back 27 generations.

An avid outdoorsman, he skied, hiked and played tennis for many years.  He was a charter member of the Glen Hills Swim Club, an AAU Swimming and Diving official as well as a member of the Sitzmarker Ski Club. Many neighborhood children enjoyed his outdoor ice skating rink.  Also an avid birder, he had 279 birds on his life list.

He was predeceased by his wife Virginia Armstrong Bryan, and is survived by his wife Ruth Megantz Bryan and his children Nancy B. Myer of Geneva, IL, John K. Bryan III of Holden, MA, Martha B. Maysek of Boxford, MA and seven grandchildren: Sarah Myer-Fadel, Andrew M. Myer, Michelle B. Sasse, John K. Bryan IV, Katherine G. Maysek, Audrey M. Maysek and Margaret B. Maysek
