Bryson was born August 5th, 1988 in Norman, OK. His parents are Brian and Tracy (Bruce) Slate. Bryson moved from the Norman/Noble area to Gore, OK where he attended school and then graduated from Vian, OK with the Class of 2007. While in school, Bryson was a standout athlete earning State Runner-up honors in both football and power-lifting. After graduating high school, Bryson attended Northeastern State University where he was a member of the PIKE fraternity. Bryson was a “Free Spirit Traveler” and always on the go venturing wherever his heart pleased. He was a gentle giant who had a contagious smile that always brought life to others. He had a big heart and was always looking to help others, even putting their needs before his own. Some of the things he enjoyed are spending time with his GrandBarry building projects, watching OU football and basketball, riding four-wheelers, cooking, and enjoying the outdoors. Bryson will be greatly missed by his family and friends. And as he would say, “Sleep In Rest”….RIP.
