Bryan Wayne Ayers - age 53 years, 7 months, and 18 days of Dayton, OH transitioned home, from this life, to be present with the Lord on Sunday, March 28th, 2021.

Bryan was born August 10, 1967 at Marine Corps Base - Camp Lejeune, Jacksonville, North Carolina.

He was preceded in death by his loving maternal grandparents Willis and Joy C. Rice, father Howard Wayne Ayers, and mother Brenda Joyce Rice - all of Dayton, OH.

Survived by and left behind to treasure his memories are his wife Tathiane of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, brother Michael, aunt Rita Rice and cousin Jason Adkins - all of Dayton, OH.

He received primary education through the Dayton Public School System and graduated from Patterson Co-Op High School with the class of 1985. He went on to achieve three Bachelors of Science degrees in Management, Finance, and Psychology. He further accomplished an Associates Degree of Applied Sciences in Flight Engineering from the Community College of the Air Force, as well as a Masters Degree in International Business Administration from Wright State University, in 2001.

He proudly served the United States Air Force from May 28, 1987 to December 14, 2012, retiring as Master Sergeant. Bryan received over 27 accommodations, awards, achievements, and decorations during his 25 years of service!

His hobbies included poetry, writing, amateur powerlifting, and international world travel.

He accepted Christ as his Lord & Savior and began attending First Baptist Church for Sunday Services, also regularly attending Bible Study groups, which was able to bring his soul to a closer and deeper relationship with God.

Bryan loves spending time with his family and many friends, that were more of an extended family to him.
He always like making people laugh and smile with jokes and snappy comments. He was a very intelligent, knowledgeable person and didn’t mind sharing that with you.

Bryan lived a full life at a young age and made many achievements while embracing and living his life to the fullest!

Three words to sum up Bryan's life:

Poem - UNTITLED ** ** March 29, 2020
Life is so magnificently strange,
explore all corners of its complexity in your time,
its a privilege well deserved.

Having experienced so many critical encounters
I know that this - as all other chaotic episodes - pass.

Be happy,
be free to became what you're meant to be,
onward and upward.

Bryan always made me chuckle & I truly treasure every memory. His smile welcomed me in the AF world over 20 years ago...he was ALWAYS a true friend to Allan. I’m thankful he accepted Christ! We’ll miss you but it’s only “see you later” not goodbye. ♥️
