Bryson Craig Wellesley 18, of Pleasant Grove Utah, returned to his heavenly father on May 15 2019. He was born on June 22, 2000 to Duncan and Jennie in Orem Utah. Bryson grew up in Pleasant Grove attending Grovecrest elementary and Pleasant Grove Junior High before graduation from American Fork High School in 2018.
Throughout his childhood and as he grew into a young adult Bryson set himself apart as a deeply compassionate, affectionate and caring young man. He brought joy and laughter to those around him with an ease and grace.
Bryson grew up with a love of the outdoors from the start, beginning with camping trips as a baby which would continue throughout his life. He loved the time he spent with nature and in all its forms. He greatly enjoyed trips to the Oregon Coast looking forward to spending time near the sea. From collecting fossilized shells in the mountains to actual shells on the beach his enjoyment was undeniable. He enjoyed collecting rocks and small trinkets from the places he visited.
As Bryson matured, he developed a deep and varied love for the arts in all of its forms taking an active approach to developing his talents in music originally learning to play an instrument and listening to anything and everything that caught his attention. He loved musicals and musicians of the past and present finding happiness in every new song he discovered. He also began writing, showing a talent in both the art of poetry, and the writing of short stories, it was another form of expression in which he was gifted. Of all his many talents cooking and the culinary arts were his favorite. Bryson spent numerous hours cooking and baking doing all of it with a huge smile showing determination in not only learning how to prepare a certain recipe but then perfecting it in his own unique ways. Bryson always made anyone around him while in the kitchen laugh as they helped or simply smile by just watching the joy he displayed in what he was doing.
Bryson made a huge impact on all those around him in the time he shared with us. He showed great affection and love to all who knew him but truly enjoyed the happiness he was able to bring to his family and friends that were simply an extension of family to him from his brothers and sisters to his young cousins. He effortlessly could bring laughter and light to those he interacted with especially his family and friends to whom it’s well known.
He will be deeply greatly and sadly missed both for the loss felt now as well as in the future. Bryson left a lasting and very bright impact in his time here, which we shall all remain grateful for.
Bryson is survived by his parents, Duncan, Jennie and Ron, as well as his brothers and sisters Chad, Sierra, Alia, Jamison, Deacon and Ella. He also leaves behind numerous loving cousins, Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents along with many wonderful friends.
