Coleta Ezidore, April 22, 2017 What a joy Mr. Blanton has been to our family. His impression and seeds will last forever. From Morgan having him for Science at Stafford to Katie having him as a teacher at Trent for DGA. His YouTube rap, poster of The Office and positive attitude will always be remembered. This year Morgan's sophomore writing prompt for the STAAR was "can one choose to be happy". She dedicated her essay to Mr. Blanton and his legacy as a teacher and friend. Much love Mrs. Blanton and your beautiful family. Sherry, Morgan and Katie Reeve, April 22, 2017 Mr. Blanton was a good friend & an excellent Science teacher when I had him during my 6th grade year @ Stafford Middle School. I knew him very well & he often visited me @ McAlister's in Frisco when I worked there, which made me very happy to see him often. I'm definitely glad that I got to know Mr. Blanton & I will miss him forever.
Jacob Widick, April 22, 2017 Mr. Blanton was one of the best teachers I've ever had. Daily he was filled with joy and kindness and it radiated out of him. He always knew how to put a smile on his students face and how to make them laugh. He was a blessing to every student that crossed paths with him and is one of the reasons science is my favorite subject. RIP you will be missed. Rachael Watson, April 21, 2017 Mrs. Blanton, We are so sorry for your loss. Ella's favorite class is skills for living and I'm sure Mr. Blanton was a wonderful teacher like yourself. My daughter Sophia goes to AlphaBEST at Newman with Sarah and we have been praying for peace for your family. Love, The pecino's Ella Pecino, April 21, 2017 Mr Blanton taught both of our boys (Colin and Ethan). He was an amazing teacher and we were so sorry to hear of his passing. May he Rest In Peace Colin and Pam McKelroy, April 21, 2017 Bryce was one of my best friends in high school. He was such a funny, happy go lucky guy who made us all laugh. He loved Vanilla Ice (Ice, Ice baby:) and frequently told all of our friends how his car (The Reliant) only went one speed FAST. I will never forget your love of basketball or you! Today I passed by your old house where the basketball goal still stands and I thought of you. Although we haven't kept in touch I see what an amazing man you grew into and what a lovely family man you were. To his beloved family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bryce's legacy will live on in each of you forever and I truly believe he will be watching over each of you every day. God bless all Bryce's loved ones especially his wife, kids, mother & brother.

Our thought and prayers are with you and your family. Lori walker, April 20, 2017 God Bless your family with comfort and Joy knowing Bryce is free of his pain and with his savior. What a blessing it was to have known Bryce and having his friendship. We are all to be together with him and all our other friends in Heaven one day, and enjoy each other's company and fellowship. David Gerstung, April 20, 2017 We first came to know Bryce as the father of our son's best friend (Jake), as the Middle School Matchup baseball team coach, and as an inspiring science teacher at Stafford Middle School where he was known for his unconventional approach in letting the kids throw water balloons at him (in certain circumstances)! Our son Peyton will always remember the many parties and sleepovers that Bryce and Anna hosted in which they treated my son as one of their own. Bryce was always so kind, and never failed to ask how our other son was doing. It was obvious he loved children. We are so terribly saddened by his passing and we extend our sincere, heartfelt condolences to Anna, Jake, Sarah and his entire family. Our hearts break for you all. Rest peacefully Bryce, free from cancer, and in the arms of our Lord for eternity. God bless you all. ~The Leydecker Family~ Amy Loupe Leydecker', April 20, 2017 Bryce always had a way of making us smile! We will always remember having lunch at the Blanton's home when Bryce showed us a video of him dancing to one of his favorite 90's songs! He was a wonderful father, husband and educator. Love to all of the family. Heaven has, indeed, received a special angel. Love, Kelly Anderson
Kelly Anderson, April 20, 2017 We have wonderful memories of spending time with Bryce and the Blanton family at baseball fields all over North Texas, at our homes, the pool or an athletic field nearby, and of eating with you at Boston's, Durkin's, Rosa's and more. Our lives are forever changed by knowing you all. We will miss Bryce very much. All our love to Anna, Jake and Sarah! Thank you for all of the blessings you have given us over the years. Our prayers for your peace, comfort and healing. Coppinger Family, April 20, 2017 Loved my years in working with Bryce at the Y. "Iceman", always kept things interesting. Being able to see him with his kids was a joy! Jeff Thomas, April 20, 2017 So sorry for your loss.
