Bryan C. Davis

Date of Death: 
September 6th, 2021

Bryan C. Davis was working actively on his sobriety, but succumbed to his addiction and passed away on September 6, 2021 at 41 years of age. He is survived by his mom, Elizabeth Lundrigan; sister, Linda Davis, two daughters, Serenity and Izabella; father Charles Davis (Maria); half-sisters, Kerrilyn, Kristen and Karlie; and paternal grandmother, Mary Davis. He was the grandson of the late Charles Davis and maternal grandparents, the late Vince and Rita Lundrigan who loved him dearly. His supportive immediate family is deeply saddened and heartbroken, as are special aunts/uncles, cousins and many friends. His loss in this life is immeasurable. Bryan was born and raised in Philadelphia and a carpenter by trade. He was grateful for the many friends he had in AA who supported him throughout the years. He was thankful for the kindness and generosity from those friends and at times even strangers. He was very grateful to have people in his life that loved and supported him. Bryan loved his daughter Serenity dearly and loved to be with her. Even though he was apart from Izabella, he loved her just as much and treasured the times he could be with her. He was grateful that she was with his dad, whom he loved. Bryan was very close to his sister. He spent a lot of time with his mom and called most every day. He was a good son. He enjoyed his guitar and playing music. Even though his addiction took over his life at times, it did not define who he was. He was a soul-full, caring human. He will be remembered for his friendliness and kindness. He was thoughtful, helpful, patient and funny. Even when he had little in his pocket, he shared it with others in need. To those that knew him well, Bryan was well liked and will be greatly missed. Bryan’s family is forever comforted and grateful to those who had shown him kindness and support in spite of his addiction. Relatives and friends are invited to his visitation on Saturday, September 11th from 10 to 11am at the GALZERANO FUNERAL HOME at 9304 Old Bustleton Avenue, Phila PA 19115. His Funeral Service will follow at 11am. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, kindly send a donation in Bryan’s memory to St. Francis Inn, 2441 Kensington Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19125.

It seems like it was just yesterday that we were in your grandparents basement making music, I really don't think that we were going anywhere with our music but it was the music itself that we enjoyed along with spending quality time together. We've been through a whole lot you and I and I know wherever you are right now that your in peace because your fight is over. You were my brother my best friend my other half, I'm truly going to miss you bro until we meet again your friend David
Words fail to express the depth of sorrow we feel in Bryan's passing. We mourn sincerely the loss of a life that held so much promise and gave so much joy to those who knew him. Bryan's gentle demeanour shone through his demons and was evident especially in the love he held for his daughters, Mom, and sister. His affections were palpable and true. May we all recognize, above all else, the warmth of Bryan's spirit as he walked his earthly journey. May we truly see his heart that was born of courage, love and tenacity. We will remember Bryan for these gifts he left for us all. Bernice (Lundrigan) Dinn

I will always treasure the days Bryan and I spent working on the Kimmel center job. We worked partners hanging some of the barrel vaulted ceilings. We were both still early in our trade but learned a lot on that one. Nearly 20 years has gone by and unfortunately i lost Bryan to the rigors of family life. I ran into him a few years back and we talked a time or two. I will always think of him as a friend. I hope he as found peace and is now on the crew of the carpenter from Nazareth. Deeply sorry to hear of his loss.
Bry a.k.a. Big B, you were always one of my closest guy friends. I will forever treasure all the memories we have and you will forever remain in my heart. I'm sure Fran and Jessie welcomed you with open arms. Until we meet again my friend. May you finally rest in peace. I love you Big B, love Kristie

It was my pleasure becoming friends with you Bryan. I’m going to miss you! Until we meet again ❤️❤️❤️
I have been blessed to know Bryan since he was a child He was game to have fun in his quiet and calm manner. A free spirit to join any activity He excelled in school. God had blessed him with intelligence and survival skills. He grew up much too quickly in the streets of Philadelphia. Teenage years can be challenging. Satan can convince us that what is sinful and pleasurable at the moment can quickly turn into our destruction. The war began for sobriety, some days winning and others, failing. Bryan fought hard for many years to overcome addiction. He was tough and courageous to keep fighting. He longed for a loving family with his girls. After many months winning your battle, on September 6th Bryan walked into heaven with Jesus by his side. His family welcomed him home. His addiction gone. His mind clear. His body healed. The angels sang Alleluia One day we too shall walk through the pearly gates into the love of Jesus our Savior. Invite Jesus into your heart to greet Bryan in heaven. Farewell my nephew, you will be deeply missed. I will see you again soon on streets made of gold with love radiating through us. Is that guitar music I hear playing Amazing Grace?
Betty Anne, Linda, & all Brian's Family, I am more than saddened to hear the news of Brian's passing, especially given that he was doing so well the past few months, and the genuine hope that we held in our hearts for his recovery. There are many things we do not understand, but I know that Brian is now fully embraced by that 'true peace and love' that is also beyond human understanding. I wish I could say something more to help relieve your pain. May you feel God's presence and peace in a special way in the days and months ahead.
Bryan's family, I am so sorry for your loss.I'm sorry that Bryan lost the battle. I know it has been a painful journey throughout life. My son David was his partner in crime. Ever since I have heard of Bryans passing my mind has been flooded with memories and times Bryan was at our home and up the mountains with us. My wish for all of you is to find comfort in the memories of Bryan that brings a smile to your face. Love, Terry Niblick
I am so so sorry to hear of your brother’s passing, please know I am thinking of you and your Mother at this time, and sending prayers for both of you.

Liz, and family, we are terribly saddened and sorry for your loss. There are no words but I hope you cherish the memories and the lasting legacy. Godspeed. Jeff, Marcy, Elley Williams
Betty Ann, please accept our condolences in your time of sorrow. I hope you can find peace in knowing Bryan is in a better place. Addiction takes a person to places they would never go being clean. Bryan was at the mercy of this terrible drug. Heroin is like the devil, it haunts the addict, they go to any length to get the drug. We are so sorry for your loss. No one can help an addict when they are in active addiction except the addict. Just remember, you did not cause it, you can not cure it. All you can do is know how much you loved him and he you. May God grant you peace.
I was so deeply saddened when I heard of Bryan's passing. I thought back to the short time we spent together as children and hope he had the same fond memories. I look at my child and try to imagine the pain of this but fail I'm certain. I hope you are surrounded by people you love at this time. Eric Dinn
Sorry Bry couldn’t be there today. Know that we are taking care of Bella. I know your mind and body feel so much better and you are in a place beautiful beyond belief. Your girls need a guardian angel especially these days. Say hi to Uncle Mike and Poppy for us. Love Maria
All of the family is so sad to hear of Bryan’s passing at such a young age! Many struggle in their lives and sometimes, despite their best efforts, the struggle is too great! So sorry Bryan was one of them! Our thoughts are with all our cousins, his family and friends in this time of grief! Mike, Maureen, Rick, Dave, Chris, Sean and mom (Shirley)Lundrigan
