Irvin Bryan Eady was born in Chattanooga, Oklahoma on April 23, 1935 to Bruce and Maybelle Eady. He passed away on February 10, 2018 in Norman, Oklahoma surrounded by his family.

Bryan grew up in Chattanooga, Walters, and especially loved living on the farm in Indiahoma with his horse Trigger. He graduated from Southeast High School in Oklahoma City in 1953. He served in the Air Force for 5 years, during that time he was a drill instructor and captain of the drill team. He became a technical representative for several different companies living in Oklahoma and Texas. In 1962, while traveling on business in Duluth, Minnesota, he met his wife Gerhua on a blind date. They married on June 1, 1963 and made their home in Moore, Oklahoma where they raised their three children. He worked for Tinker Air Force Base as a Professional Electronic Engineer until his retirement in 1991.

Bryan enjoyed reading mystery and western novels. He spent many hours working with his wood lathe making gifts for family and friends. He loved working with his hands and he built a home in Norman on five acres that he lived in with his wife for 20 years. One of his favorite things was sitting by the fireplace and spending time with his family. He also enjoyed gardening and sitting on the porch watching the wildlife.

They had three children: Barbara and her husband Robert Gibbs of Claremore, Oklahoma, Brenda and her husband Terry Jameson of Oklahoma City, and his son Bruce Eady of Oklahoma City. He was also the proud grandfather of three grandchildren: Sara and her husband Shane Hagan of Edmond, Oklahoma, Bryan and John Gibbs of Claremore, Oklahoma.
