Obituary | Ronald Grant Bryan


Ron Bryan (85), passed away at home on April 25, 2020, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. He was born on May 30, 1934, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Grace and Sheldon Bryan. He is survived by his wife of almost 49 years, Elizabeth.

After graduation from high school, Ron spent 4 years in the Navy aboard a destroyer ship. He has an undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland and a master’s degree from Georgetown University. He worked for IBM for 38 years, most of that time being spent in the Washington, D.C. area.

He fell in love with Marco Island and decided that was where he wanted to retire. Since December 1997, Ron and Liz have made Hideaway Beach their permanent home. One of his great pleasures was playing golf and he never stopped trying to improve his game. Ron is a member of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church. In recent years, he especially enjoyed the men’s Bible study group.

Arrangements for a funeral service will be made at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his name to either AVOW Hospice, Naples, FL, or St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Marco Island, FL.
