His mom was a P.A., one out of one hundred girls who received a scholarship to the reservation. Bryan grew up on the reservation until his mom's death at age 12. Bryan's Papa, Marvin Puckett, taught English on the reservation. Bryan's Navajo roots go as far back to the Long Walk in 1864. From the time he was a little boy he was full of life. He loved nature, sports, hunting and fishing. Bryan met the love of his life, Kristin Griffith, and they were married September 2, 2017. Bryan was licensed for heat and air. He was responsible for a lot of work which also included his family and friends. Bryan was a huge Sooner fan as well as a Thunder fan. He loved most being a husband, a son, a brother and an uncle. And to his nieces and nephews, Tayah, Jennie Jo, and Dycen Darks, he was known as "BB". His fond memories would be travelling to California to visit his sister, Tanya or to Texas to visit his Dad and Lori. He loved hunting trips with his brother, Troy. He also made some visits back to the reservation where they once dressed Kristin as a Navajo bride. His latest adventures were gathering with friends at the Thunder Road House Café.

So sorry to read about your loved one. My hope is to share some comforting thoughts from God's word. John 5:28,29 and John 11:25 tells us that there is a coming resurrection of those lost to death. Rev.21:4 and 1 Cor. 15:26 tells us too that God will wipe out death forever. May you find comfort and peace at this difficult time.
