Kelly moved to Grand Forks with his parents as a very small child before moving to Warroad, MN. He lived the remainder of his life in Northern Minnesota. He went to school in Warroad and as a kid he loved school and all the activities involved. When he was a teenager school was not his favorite, he would have rather been in the woods exploring or working.
All his life he liked to tinker with things and he would claim “ I can fix that”. He would make up names for parts that he had no idea what it was, but he knew he could do it. He loved tools as a kid and had a uncommon love for ½” wrenches. He swiped everyone his dad had. He had a love for tools so much he built up quite the collection of tools before he left. Kelly had a love of three wheelers, go-karts, trucks and cars. The didn’t always run but he could fix them.
He fell in Love with Christy Nelson and had two children; Toby Michael Bryan and Tyler Michel Bryan. He loved his kids and wanted them to learn about the woods and tried to get them involved in his fixing things.
He had a special place in his heart for his grandparents Steve and Avis Reandeau. They came into his life as a small child and never left him.
