A Vietnam veteran, Bryan fought his cancer and declining health with valor. . He was predeceased by his wife Linda Yeats Anastasio and daughter Anne-Marie Anastasio. He is survived by his sisters Kathryn Boylen (Charles), Sandra Michalec, sisters-in-law Alisa Johnson (Brett), Kathy Yeats, and Diane Yeats. He was the devoted and loving uncle to a niece, nephews and their families. Born in South Dakota, Bryan moved with his family to Spokane in 1956, where he lived until he moved to Colbert in 1978. He worked as a union carpenter for most of his life. He loved skiing, travel, and connecting with his many friends. He was always available to help people, and was most generous with his time and talent for building and fixing things. He read widely and was very concerned about the fate of the country and of the planet.. His family and friends will be celebrating his life on Sunday, April 23 at the Black Diamond, 9614 E Sprague Ave Spokane Valley at 1PM. We will all miss him and his enthusiasm for life.
