Lucas Gerald Bryson passed away peacefully and in the arms of his parents on November 5, 2017 at Ava’s Hospice House in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Lucas was born on February 9, 2015 to Trevor and Alli Bryson. Lucas had a condition known as “Hydranencephaly” which was suppose to give him certain “odds at life” and a poor outlook. Those who knew him know he never let those odds or limitations define who he was. His infectious smile could light up a room. His determination, strength, and will to face any hardship life threw at him was admirable; and that is what he will be remembered for most.
He loved his big brothers Ryan and Beau, listening to music, sitting and soaking up the sun, and being snuggled in the arms of his parents. He will be missed by his family more than words could ever express; but he leaves behind a legacy of life and love and has made an impression on the hearts of many.
Grateful for having shared Lucas’ life are: his parents, Trevor and Alli; brothers, Ryan and Beau; paternal grandparents, Karla Bryson and Doug (Christy) Bryson; maternal grandparents, Gerald (Becky Zeilstra) Boyer and Jodi (Doug) McManigal; paternal great-grandmother, Shirley Van De Pol; maternal great-grandparents, Lee and Carolyn Boyer and Virginia Weber; two uncles, Nicholas Bryson and his children, Trigg, Lora, and Axsa and Doug (Carissa) Bryson, Jr. and their children, MacKenzie and Nathaniel; many other extended family; and special god-parents, Kathy Johnson and Daniel and Stacy Brown.
