    Bryan was a dear friend of my parents. I spent the majority of my childhood cracking clams and cutting up bait aboard many of his boats. Most of my fondest memories, as both a child, as well as an adult, included his love.

    When troubled waters surrounded me, he was as safe as a ship in port. Though Bryan did not have biological children of his own, I never felt loved any less.

    Today, I’ll raise a whiskey glass of V.O and bid farewell to one of the fondest folks this world has ever known. I couldn’t have been where I am today had Bryan not loved us the way he did.

    Anchors up, Capt.

    I’ll bet Cappy, Smoke, and so many others are sankerin around sipping a little something waiting on a WHOMPER right now.

    With Respect and Condolences to the family,

    Anna and Kasha

    Fairwell to my dear friend. Some of my fondest memories are the times spent with Bryan, Fred, and myself on the water. Laughing, telling stories, and catching a lot of fish. Condolences to the family. -Leo
    (My father asked me to type this. He was crying and very emotional about the loss of his dear friend. He had so many wonderful things to say about him. Sorry for your loss. “Fairwell and following seas”-Angelia).

    My friend, my Captain, I was truly blessed to know you. We fished together for 30 plus years. You taught me what I know about fishing in the great place we loved and cherished the “Chesapeake bay” When you were on a 2 week schedule we fished 12 days. Then when you were on a 3 week on and off schedule we fished 19 days/nights. I knew you were serious when we would buy 8 dozen softs crabs at a time from parks. I knew you were serious when The late Bobby Ford told us where he bought his blooodworms, we would buy 2 flats from laurel and hopefully that would last for a few weeks. Your great love and exemplary respect for your wonderful parents was a blessing for all to follow. Your constant love and deep concern for your siblings and all family was an example that should be taught to all. How many times would we look down into the water and be struck by the beauty that god created for us to be able to admire and enjoy. Gosh the things we talked about Animals, Art, astronomy and space, business and finance, computers, chemistry, physics, family, earth and sciences, food and agriculture. government and law, health and the sciences, all the different languages and different continents, I could go on and on, but the best thing I Learned from you my captain was the love of life. so my captain I say to you again “just one more cast”.
