Plans for Bryan

Family and Friends:
There will be a memorial service for Bryan Kortness at Austin & Bell Funeral Home in White House, TN, on Friday, April 10th. Visitation will take place 1pm-3pm with the memorial service beginning at 3pm.

A Memorial fund has been set up with his Leslie's permission at 
David Hardin

Bryan Kortness was an inspiration, a jokester, and a lover of all things bikes!! One interaction with him and it was obvious how much he knew about cycling of all kinds, and the passion he had for it! His enthusiasm and positive attitude were contagious, to both new and experienced riders, the first time buyer or longtime bike enthusiast.

The outpouring on social media sites has been amazing! After speaking with Leslie, she mentioned that his mom (nor Teagan) are on social media. That being said…we’d like to put together a bound book that we can give to both of them.

We need your stories, your pictures, the “Bryan-isms” that you are willing to share. Thank you in advance for your contributions. If anyone would be interested in a copy of the book when it is complete, please let me know that too and we'll get pricing.

All items can be sent to me at:

I will try to send out weekly reminders… The target deadline to submit will be by May 10th. Please share this with anyone who may wish to contribute.

I am sad that I won't be able to be there tomorrow. I already have a previous commitment to visit my sister with nonrefundable arrangements out of town. Please let Leslie and our cyclists friends know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all!
