September 23, 1988 - December 12, 2020
On December 12, 2020, Bryan Seth Story passed peacefully into the loving arms of his heavenly father. Bryan was born in Nuernburg, Germany to Steven Bryan Story and Anita (Duncan) Wilkinson on September 23, 1988. Bryan is survived by his three children Chelsea Ellen, Nathan Bryan, and Katherine Elizabeth Story, who were his greatest joy. Bryan is also survived by his parents Steven Story and Anita (Duncan) Wilkinson, brother and sister-in-law Steven Tyler and Ashleigh Story, niece Jaelyn Story, nephew Lincoln Story, spare-mom Tiffiney Story, Anita's life partner Terry Lovell, Terry's daughters Kimberly Dean and Jennifer Lovell, step-sisters Kat and Elizabeth Wilkinson, five aunts, two uncles, and numerous cousins.Bryan was a proud father, a loving son, and a devoted brother who proudly served our country in the United States Army. Bryan was proud to be a soldier in the Army where he earned expert rifle and expert grenade qualifications, along with the Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon. He loved being a part of something bigger than himself and helping his fellow man.When thinking of Bryan's legacy, the words used to describe him are universal. Generosity, even to a fault, was his most dominant character trait. If anyone were in need, Bryan would give to them, even if it meant he would go without. He had a huge heart full of love. His greatest love was that for his three children. You could literally see his eyes light up when seeing, hearing, or even talking about his children. His children have shared fond memories of his loving and caring nature. He was brave for them, showing by example how to do something they were scared to do. They all loved going to water parks together. Bryan always enjoyed time with family. His robust laughter and genuine, wide smile would fill a moment. Bryan was goofy, funny, and playful, He was a daredevil and a jokester. Bryan was caring, kind, and loving. He had a sweet heart and he was the most empathetic person many of us will ever meet, though there were times when his strong stubbornness certainly shone through. He will also be remembered for his drawing capabilities and his enormous love of animals. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.Sam Shannon, JR will be officiating services with pallbearers, Mike Story, Steve Bradley, JB Story, Samuel Story, Garrett Bradley, and Preston Story.Funeral services will be held at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home in Clinton, Arkansas on Friday, December 18, 2020 at 2:00pm. Interment will follow at Cullpepper Cemetery.

My deepest sympathy goes to you and your family during this time. I only knew Bryan for a very short time through Tyler and Ashleigh but I could tell he had a good heart. His name was on the lips and hearts of many praying for him and interceding for him during the last several months. Praying for each of his family members and friends during this time.
Steve and family, I am so sorry to hear of Bryan's passing. Words can not change anything or make your pain any worse. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort in the days ahead.

Anita, I send my most sincere condolences to you and your families. I will always remember â€œBubba â€œ and all you and him use to do. Anyone that knows you knows that your boys are your heart â¤ï¸! I pray all will be well with you and God will grant you the peace and courage to live on and teach his kids his legacy.
My dearest friend Bryan I am saddened by your passing and at the same time so relieved you are no longer struggling. You and Christine were some of my closest friends during a rough part of my life. We have so many memories good and bad. One of my first one was when we were all at my house when I lived in Killeen and we saw a mouse. You and Tyler thought you were going to save the day with a Broom and a trash can. While Christine sat at the table and waited all you could do is hear screams from the pantry. We opened the door to find you standing on the chair screaming while Tyler got the mouse. You were there for my girls when they were going through a hard time. And one of my biggest supporters when my Dad passed away 11 years ago. Your kids and family were your life. Now they have you as their guardian angel. Rest High My Dear Friend You Will Be Terribly MissedðŸ’“
