I first met Bryce Freshman year when we both joined the Indoor Track team.  That relationship continued for the next four years in both Indoor and Outdoor Track.  Many bus rides and full days at track meets all over the place.  So many great memories.  Bryce was a dedicated runner and always worked hard at it.  Such a great guy.  While it has been many years since we have seen each other, I remember him fondly as if it was yesterday.  Rest in peace.

Yes, there is always a soft spot when a classmate passes . It doesn't matter if you knew them well, hung around with them or in a class together. It is sad.  I know he was "one of the good guys" and will be missed by everyone who knew him.   My prayers are with his loved ones.

So sorry to read about Bryce's passing.  We had several classes together all four years and he was always a gentleman and so nice.  Always smiling.  My sympathy to his family.

I'm in total shock hearing of Bryce's passing .  We were track teammates for four years and cross country as well. I have family in Myrtle Beach and we got together about three years ago for dinner and had such a great time reminiscing about HS and beyond. I talked  to him last year and we planned on getting together again as he lived near the venue my youngest daughter had for her Wedding reception in Pawley's Island .  Bryce was a beautiful man and he will always be remembered as such. . My deapest condolences to his family. May he Rest In Peace

So sorry to hear of Bryce’s passing. I remember calling him by a nickname of Brick. We met in grade school and ran cross-country together in high school. I say together because we were in the same race and neck and neck at the start. He ran like the wind and could go forever. I would see him at the end of the race looking like he could run another. I, on the other hand, was bent over taking care of my queasy stomach. He was definitely one of the good guys. It is hard to see him go and I miss him.

My mom and dad were good friends with the Rexroat family. Brick and Faith were in my class at Ascension and our families were often together.  Brick was always a good guy and a lot of fun when our families got together. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

I had the good luck of going to the same college as Bryce and we maintained our friendship for years.  He was in the wedding party when Louise and I got married.  His friendship was a gift which won't be forgotten.

Like all of you I had endless good memories of Bryce. He enjoyed life. If he wasn't smiling he was laughing.

It is very sad to hear of Bryce's passing.  A great guy and a great runner.  I admired his competitive spirit and work ethic.  I can't tell you how many miles we logged together as part of the cross-country, indoor, and outdoor track teams.  My condolences to his family and many friends.
