Chaz Aaron Bryan
June 11, 1999 – August 05, 2017
Chaz Aaron Bryan was born June 11, 1999 in Elk
City, Oklahoma 
to Gena Mae and Timothy Mark Bryan. He passed away August 5,
 2017 at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the age of 18 years, 1 month 
and 24 days.
Chaz began school at Sayre, Oklahoma before
transferring to Cheyenne 
School where he was a member of the Class of 2018. He
was active in
 sports, participating in baseball, basketball and also ran track.
He was
 a member of the band, playing the trumpet and drums. He was an active
 member of 4-H and the Cheyenne FFA. He showed sheep and goats and
 had been
elected to serve as the Sentinel in this upcoming school year.
 This past month,
he achieved a great goal by being voted on as a member 
of the Sweetwater Fire
Department where he joined ranks with father, Tim,
 who currently serves as the
Fire Chief. Chaz loved being outdoors and 
enjoyed hunting, fishing, working on
the Dobson Ranch and was his Dad’s
 best “Rakehand/Farmhand”. This
summer, he found that Preslie, his Best
 friend for years, had become the young
lady he had chosen to call his
 Girlfriend. Chaz had such a burden for his
friends and was genuinely concerned 
for them. He always talked so highly of his
Dad and wanted nothing more than
 to make his family proud. He was very proud of
becoming a firefighter, but 
was not content with just that. He wanted to work
harder at his job so that 
his Dad would see that he had a good work ethic. He
bragged on his Dad’s
 work ethic and talked about his grandma being such a godly
influence in 
his life and how he enjoyed his lunches with her daily.
Chaz was baptized in March 25, 2012 at New
Liberty Church where he
 was currently a member of the New Liberty Church. In
June of this year, 
he attended camp at Falls Creek where he rededicated his
life to the Lord.
He was preceded in death by his maternal
grandmother, Carolyn Chalfant,
 paternal grandfather, Leonard Bryan and an aunt,
Connie Bryan.
