Stephen L. Bryan

December 20, 1946 - July 21, 2021

Stephen L. Bryan, 74, of Joplin, passed away Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

Stephen was born December 20, 1946 to Bernard and Helen (Miller) Bryan of Diamond, Mo. He enjoyed drafting in school.  He rebuilt a 1939 Ford.  He enjoyed riding motorcycles.  He enjoyed music, boating and being outdoors.  He was a kind, caring, and happy man if you got to know him.  He would do anything for those in his circle and put their needs over his.  He was a dog lover and loved his furry companion, Pumpkin, more than life.  He and Pumpkin have finally been reunited at the Rainbow bridge. He worked for Atlas Powder Company (ICI) for almost 22 years.  He owned and operated Last Chance Saloon.

Stephen was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Davey Bryan.

He is lovingly survived by his two daughters, Stephanie Reid and husband Blake, and Jana Bryan: three siblings, Larry Bryan and wife, Linda, Mike Bryan and wife, Virginia, and Brenda Moore: as well as a host of extended family and friends.

Stephen’s wishes were for no formal services to be held.  Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Parker Mortuary.
