Bryan owned and operated Bryan’s Top Notch Vending in Moline, serving the East Moline Correctional Center, Thomson Bureau of Federal Prisons, and many other businesses. He enjoyed visiting Bim at the McGinnis Farms. Bryan was a very generous person, a role model to his friends and family, and a great businessman. He enjoyed spending time outdoors camping and bike riding. He also loved sports—especially the Cubs, Bears, Blackhawks and the Fighting Illini.
