Smith Bryan Paul, age 42, of Anoka, died tragically on July 4, 2003 after a long and valiant fight against depression. He'll be forever loved and missed by his wife, Kathy; son, Aaron; and daughter, Jenna. Bryan was born on Christmas Day, 1960 and will forever be our special gift. If something were broken, Bryan would fix it, whether it was a broken heart or a broken furnace. If we ever needed some laughter or a really good debate, Bryan was always there for us. Bryan also leaves behind his parents, Marion & Luella Smith; brothers, Jeff (Linda) Smith, and Mark (Kelly) Smith; sisters, Carol (Jeff) Lapka, Eileen Adams, Barbara (Butch) Olsen, and Heidi (Steve) Carlson; father-in-law, Charles (Mary) Kucera; sister- in-law, Mary Kucera; and brothers-in- law, David (Karin) Kucera and Allen (Kim) Kucera. Uncle Bryan will also be missed by his 16 nieces and 11 nephews, and many other friends and family. Bryan was preceded in death by his sister, Kimberly; and mother-in-law, Yoko Kucera. Private family services. In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred. Brinky, we love you so much and will miss you forever. Washburn-McReavy Columbia Heights Chapel 4101 Central Ave NE 763-789-4436
