In April of 1941, Clarence and Bertha Bryan brought a baby boy into the world and named him Clarence Robert Bryan.  Bobby attended Cochranville Elementary, Elk View School in Penn Township and Avon Grove High School.  While in high school Bob, the guy with the ’49 Chevy convertible, met Jean, the girl with the hot ’50 Olds.  Bob graduated from Avon Grove in 1959 and received his associates degree in accounting from Goldey-Beacom College in 1964.  Bob worked for the DuPont de Nemours Co. from 1959-2001.  His time was spent with the DuPont Country Club and the Hotel DuPont.

Bob and Jean married in 1962, made their home in West Grove, and shared 53 years of marriage.  They had one son, David Robert Bryan, of whom he was very proud.  Bob worked hard and was a very kind man.  After retirement, he had more time to spend traveling and enjoying NASCAR and his Phillies.  During retirement, he was joined by Parkinson’s disease and advanced prostate cancer.  He just kept going and never complained.

Bob died March 29.  In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by three brothers; Gary, Richard, and Donald, and one brother-in-law, Donald Gregg.  Living on without him are his wife Jean, son David and fiancée Ingrid Weber, sister Janet Gregg, brother James Bryan Sr and a very large family including nieces, nephews and cousins.  Bob made our corner of the world a nicer place.
