Aidan Reece Bryant, 21, found peace on September 14, 2023. Aidan entered this crazy world on July 16, 2002. He joined his big sister Gabi, and brothers Andrew, Jake, (and later Quinn).  As an energetic baby, Aidan was always curious and happy with a totally unique style: by the age of three, he was already a skate punk. At seven, he was a Guitar Hero master.  He played baseball for a minute but found his passion and talent in music in middle school under the guidance of his beloved band teacher, Bethany Starks. There he played trombone and baritone. Aidan taught himself piano and guitar. In his early years of high school, Aidan marched with Blue Valley West’s Red and Silver Brigade. He had a beautiful voice, and often could be heard singing in the shower. Aidan loved listening to music,tattooing, gaming, animals, and being in nature. He loved taking walks at the Arboretum.  Some of Aidan’s favorite memories were trips to Colorado and Idaho. The mountains were his happy place. 

Aidan was kind, caring and charming. He was loved by so many. His mom always told him that if he loved himself a fraction of how much she loved him, he would be okay. Recently, Aidan was looking forward to getting an education in healthcare or cyber security. He hoped to move to Colorado someday. 

Aidan is survived by his mother, Jennifer; father, Don; siblings Gabi (Cody), Andrew (Sarah), Jake, and Quinn;  his niece, Riley; nephew, Roland; his Little Fella, Maya; his dogs, Ralph and Sylvie; and cats, Violet and Millie. Aidan was cherished and loved by grandparents Judy and Bob Reece, David and Carol Walton, and all of his aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

Aidan is preceded in death by his grandparents Betty and Frank Bryant;  Papa Mikey and Grammy Devery; Uncle Mike and Aunt Lili. 

Aidan’s life will be celebrated on Friday, September 29th from 5:30-8:00 pm with a service at 6:00 at the Timber Ridge Adventure Center in Olathe, Kansas. 

Donations in his memory can be made to KC Pet Project or Friends of Johnson County Mental Health
