Bryce was an iron worker with Local 395 (Hammond) for 40 years before retiring. He was a member of Springville Free Methodist where he served as a trustee for over 45 years.
Bryce enjoyed spending time with his family and friends on the estate that he built in Springfield Township back in 1976. He loved working in the wood/metal shop he built on the back of the property, where he and the “boys” made and told may stories that resulted in lifetime friendships and memories. Bryce was a man that kept promises, honored commitment and was a man of integrity. His word was his bond. Bryce was a man who faithfully lived his values and loved his family unconditionally.
