    Bryan lived life his way. He chose to live “rough” in Truro’s Boscawen Park for 8 years before moving Hayle in 2020 to live in a caravan, where he passed away recently. He had many friends in Truro, lots of whom would pop in to see that he was coping OK. Some would stop and chat, others would bring him food regularly. He was a very kind and intelligent man who loved to read. He was very independent and lived off what little he had. He was never one to feel self pity, as he had chosen his life style and made the most of it. We want to put a memorial plaque in one of Bryan’s “reading rooms”, Sunny Corner, near Malpas in Truro. We also want to arrange a floral tribute for his funeral, whenever that might be. Any surplus funds will be shared amongst the support groups that helped Bryan through the hard times. Truro Methodist Church, St Petrocs, the food bank and the local breakfast club to mention but a few.

    Bryan had an impact on those who grew to know and like him. That was evident by the numbers that cared for and offered him help when he needed it. We feel that he needs to be remembered in the best way possible. He will be missed by many. RIP Bryan.

      We have had an amazing response to our fund raiser. Bryan was clearly a well liked, well loved individual who had friends across our community. That has been reflected by the numbers of people that have already donated.

      This money was given to me by two of Bryan’s Church friends as they had tried and not managed to donate it online. They had lots of complimentary things to say about Bryan....he was such a lovely man.
