BRYANT JOHN REESE, age 25, passed away at his home in Waseca on Monday, October 10, 2022.
Born in Albert Lea on July 5, 1997, Bryant was the son of Darin and Lynn (Kopperud) Reese. He was raised in New Richland and attended NRHEG High School, where he enjoyed playing football and running track. Following school, Bryant worked various jobs in southern Minnesota. On September 26, 2020 he was married to Taya Rosacker in New Richland. Bryant enjoyed playing Xbox with friends and family, and created many lasting friendships through that platform. His greatest love in life was his son, Gavin, who is now sixteen months old. He also loved spending time with his many nieces and nephews, and he was a great uncle to them all. Bryant will be remembered as a goofy, funny person… always quick with a witty joke or his fantastic laugh. He gave the best hugs and although his siblings don’t mind saying he could be the biggest pain, he will be sorely missed and forever loved by all who knew him.
Bryant is survived by his wife, Taya of Albert Lea; his son, Gavin of Albert Lea; his mother and step-father, Lynn and Dale Tiegs of Waseca; his father and step-mother, Darin and Kim Reese of New Richland; his siblings, Karen (Brett) Cully of New Richland, Kayla Wobbrock of New Richland, Sammi (Gregg) Curtis of Castle Rock, CO, Brianna Reese of Waseca, Terra (Sora) Reese, and Kollin Reese of Waseca; many other step-siblings; and his former girlfriend Morgan Born of Waseca. He was preceded in death by two grandfathers; one grandmother; and one step-sister, Lexi Tiegs.
