Bryan Lee Melton

June 20, 1975 - October 7, 2020

Bryan Melton fell asleep in death October 7th, 2020 at the age of 45. He was born June 20th, 1975 in Muskogee, Oklahoma to Doyle and Kathy Melton. When Bryan was one year old, his family moved to Springfield, Missouri where he enjoyed skateboarding and shooting fireworks off with his younger brother Brandon. Bryan enjoyed summer family trips to various theme parks but some of his best memories were going to Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. At a young age Bryan had a fascination with how things worked. He was always asking “why?” and his curiosity always had him disassembling anything from remote control cars to radios.  That eventually led to his interest in computers. In 2000, Bryan started his own IT company with his brother.  Later in 2003 he partnered with his longtime friend Aaron Quarles and together they ran a successful IT management company. In his career Bryan met many people with whom he formed close friendships that continued for many years.  In 2006 he welcomed his first child Maddox and then in 2008 came the birth of his daughter Sydney. It was obvious to many how much Bryan loved his children and how proud he was of their accomplishments. Bryan was a generous person and had good sense of humor. He loved music, snowboarding, playing and collecting guitars and, riding motorcycles.

Bryan is survived by his wife, Mary Melton of Lake Kiowa, Texas; children, Sydney Melton and Maddox Melton; stepchildren, Keaton White and Nyha White; parents, Kathy and Doyle Melton of Plano, Texas; brother, Brandon Melton and wife, Britney of Springdale, Arkansas; numerous other loving family and friends.

Don and Margo Wortham Don and Margo Wortham, October 17, 2020 Bryan you were an epic person I had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with! You and Maddox were like insta family to Patrick and I. In just the short time we met, I saw that you were an amazing dad taking Maddox to concerts showing him all the positives in life, kind to complete strangers which doesn’t happen often. You were too to young and full of life. You will be missed but never forgotten my friend. May you rest of with on the rock guitar god Legends and be our angel to watch over us! I will forever look after Maddox as he is now my forever distant son/concert buddy to take with my to see shows.

Mariah Delgado , October 13, 2020 It was a pleasure knowing Bryan -- met him many years ago through business and remember how he would get this huge grin when asked about his kids. I also had the pleasure of bumping into Bryan and Mary at a restaurant in McKinney some months ago and it was clear how happy they were. Prayers for the family, extended family and friends - he will be missed. Ellen Heffner, October 13, 2020 It was a true pleasure to know you Bryan. I enjoyed working with you, and the time I did get to spend with you. Many fun times. I’ll see ya again one day. Marc Rhodes, October 13, 2020 I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Bryan. I have known Bryan through business for 17 years. Whenever he showed up, he lit up a room. He always had the best laugh in the most engaging smile and he told wonderful stories. He loved his kids like nothing else. He talked about them often and he always lit up when he said their names and talked about what amazing people they are. How smart they are. I will truly miss Bryan. The world is less without him in it. I considered him to be a friend. And I looked forward to the adventure he brought to every phone call and every meeting just by being himself. Rest easy my friend and God be with you and yours. Elizabeth Westbrook, October 13, 2020 My Beautiful Boy! I miss your presence already. Your smile!! You were wicked funny with a heart of gold. You had no idea how many people loved you! We will see you again soon. In the meantime, lie peacefully. HE will call, and you will answer.
