Bryan Kelly Staggs died peacefully on August 28, 2017 after a 31 month battle with GBM brain cancer, at the age of 51, surrounded by his wife, children and brother at his home in Ruther Glen, Virginia. Bryan was born on July 27, 1966 in San Manuel, Arizona to Vernon Staggs and Gradyne Turney. Bryan is survived by his wife, Rosemarie, his five children Kris, Ryan, Rachel, Justin and Austin and his six grandchildren Natalyn, Addison, Colton, Raelea, Remington and Ryker.
Bryan was bigger than life, a force to be reckoned with, one of a kind. He was brilliant and excelled in everything he did. He was a loyal friend and a fierce enemy. During his short life he accomplished many things including riding bulls in the rodeo and serving his country. He joined the Army in 1988 and was in the Old Guard until he reclassified to Military Intelligence. He loved working on cars and fishing. He was a computer genius and fulfilled a dream when he started his own company. But what mattered most to Bryan was his family. He loved his wife and children fiercely and was so proud of being a husband, a father and grandfather. His personality was magnetic and he was loved by many but no one loved him more than his wife and children. The hole he leaves behind is immense but his legacy will live forever in his children and the impact he made on all who knew him.
Bryan’s ashes will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery at a date yet to be determined. A celebration of life will follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Bryan's life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to PayPal.me/RosemarieStaggs to help with medical expenses.

I love you dad! It is difficult to write or utter the words, I miss you, but I will miss you every day. Through the years we had a lot of great and amazing adventures. My favorite adventure of ours was when you took me to Berchtesgaden in Germany. We explored the salt mines, went hiking and toured Eagles nest. We were only there for a day or two before you got called back to base for deployment but I remember every moment of that trip. Love you pop. Blue skies

Bryan, one of the cute cousins. I have many fond memories of you when you lived in Oracle. I remember many times visiting with granny and pa. Remembering our fun outings, birthday's, Christmas and many many more fun times. I remember playing twister with your sister in your parents room and laughing so hard that we couldn't even see what color we were suppose to be putting a body part on. I remember the many scorpions we would find at your home. I remember visiting your family when you moved to Amarillo. Many fond memories! You have been blessed with a beautiful wife and wonderful kids and grand-kids. You are indeed special. God be with us all till we meet again!
