Bryan Eugene Irvine, 55, of New Madison, passed away Friday, Feb. 15, 2019 at the State of the Heart Care Center in Greenville.
He was born on May 12, 1963 in Greenville, to the late Ralph and Evelyn (Burhman) Irvine.
In addition to his parents, Bryan was preceded in death by his sister, Karmel Ann Irvine.
Bryan loved the outdoors. It was not uncommon for him to be trudging through the woods mushroom hunting or scouring the woods and fields for antlers. He loved cutting fire wood. Bryan was a machinist and enjoyed working for Moseys Manufacturing in Richmond, Indiana. He was a man of many hats. He had a hat for every occasion; he had work hats, dress hats, and everyday hats. Bryan loved to ride his Dragonfly-Green Harley Davidson Heritage Softail. Kelly and Kody would often fight over who got to ride with him. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. There was nothing more important to him and nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his wife, children and granddaughter.
Bryan is survived by his wife of 34 years, Kelly (Sink) Irvine, whom he married November 10, 1984; his children, Zachary (Shelley Burney) Irvine of Orlando, Fla., and Kody (Jared Nelson) Irvine of Dayton; and his granddaughter, Brooke Kaye Nelson; and his aunt, Julie (Bill) Dafler of New Madison.
