Bryan Wayne Denham, 60, of Alvin, passed away on Sunday, January 14, 2018. Bryan was born on October 30, 1957 in Houston to parents William and Dahlia (Busby) Denham. He started his career at a young age of 17 at Reid Electric. He continued his passion with electric working for Atec electric, Appelt electric, Wood Group, and finished his career out as a journeyman with the City of Alvin. He was an active member of the Sons of American Legion. Brian was a kind, hard-working, and committed friend to all. He loved being around his family and friends. His kind heart was known by all and many confided in him to keep a secret or to help solve a problem. He would give the shirt off of his back or his last dollar to help a friend in need. He loved telling jokes, making people laugh, and had a smile that could light up a room.
Bryan was a wonderful dad and grandfather. He was young at heart and enjoyed being around kids and accepted all of them as his own. He would take them fishing or bike riding around Alvin. He enjoyed driving his Kubota or his golf cart and would give any willing participant a ride anywhere. Being outdoors was a favorite of his. He would spend all night by a fire to smoke a brisket to feed his family and friends or spend his time camping in the woods or on the beach.
Bryan left a lasting impression on everyone that cannot be replaced. He will be loved and missed by all that knew him and the memories he created will be treasured forever.
Bryan was preceded in death by his parents, William and Dahlia Denham; and brother, William Scott Denham.
