He carried these qualities into his professional life most recently as a Material Controller with Amazon, where he was respected by his colleagues for his kind nature and diligent work ethic. Prior to his work at Amazon, Bryon worked as a store manager with PMDA for 10 years and then he worked with C and L Asphalt for 10 years.

Bryon's presence made a lasting impact on everyone he met, and his absence will be deeply felt by those who had the privilege of knowing him.
