I saw a very bright future ahead for you my friend, in this line of work and for the community you served. You had the "it" that's required to not just wear the uniform but to be the role model and example to others that it represents to be called a police officer. Your exit from this world will leave a big void in our department, community, and more importantly our lives, that we may never be able to fill. May you rest in peace now brother. With heavy hearts, we will take the watch from here.

I am at a loss for words. I did not want to believe it when Sean called to inform me of your passing. The three of us going to gun shows was always a blast.

Hey man, if you would... say hello to Flight Nurse Niki for me.

Rest in Peace.

Bryan was a strong willed officer. His attitude was so positive and he strived for the career. He will be missed. I had the pleasure of working with him instructing defensive tactics at Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy. Such a loss, so much potential, Spotsylvania Sheriff's Office lost a great officer. Rest in peace brother.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
