A Celebration of Life was held from 2-5 p.m., Saturday, March 4, at the Heritage Event Center 229 3rd Ave. W., Cresco, Iowa. Guests were invited to share their favorite Bryan story with his family and friends. Hindt-Hudek Funeral Home assisted the family.
Bryan John Sickles was born on May 19, 1998, son of Garry Sickles Jr. and Lynn (Decker) Sickles in Manchester, Iowa, while a tornado siren was blaring during a storm. He was lovingly referred to as “little big Bry Bry” by his older but shorter brother Brandon. Bryan was always drawn to the water. He loved to go swimming when he was little, and enjoyed family trips to Wisconsin Dells. Bryan was a 2017 graduate of Crestwood High School. He loved to play pool, be outside hunting, and trying to coax fish to his line. When he was not off fishing, Bryan could be seen driving his truck around and hanging out with his friends, usually with a Busch Latte in his hand. He was the biggest teddy bear with a sweet, sometimes mischievous, smile on his face, and always ready to give anyone a hug. Bryan was very dependable, whether it was sitting and listening to someone if they were having a bad day, or lending a helping hand. He was someone who showed up for others. Bryan’s comforting presence will forever be missed.
He is survived by his mother Lynn (Joe) Rose of Cresco, Iowa; father Garry (Audrey Woxland) Sickles Jr. of Mabel, Minn.; brother Brandon (Michelle) Sickles of Gretna, Manitoba, Canada; sisters Kennedy Rose of San Diego, Calif., Amy (Shane) Talty of Baraboo, Wis., Amy Lynn (Greg) Keane of Clinton, Iowa, Andrea Paterson of Wentzville, Mont., Amanda Hahn of Wickenburg, Ariz., and Lyndsey Hahn of Prairie du Chien, Wis.; and paternal grandmother Kathy Sickles of Manchester, Iowa.
Bryan was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Carl and Marie Decker, paternal grandfather Garry Sickles Jr., and grandparents Gerald and Arletta Rose.
