Bryan died suddenly Friday, October 12, 2012, after a short illness. He was born March 25, 1952, in Russell, KS, to Guy and Vera (Keith) Duvall.
After graduating from Paradise High School, he attended Barton County Community College and Kansas State University where he graduated with a Master's degree in agricultural economics. Bryan met his future wife in chemistry class at BCCC, and they married in 1978 in spite of the challenges of multiple job transfers and living halfway across the country from each other.
Bryan worked in agriculture all his life. He started out working his neighbor's ranch, working on custom harvest crews and working with multiple grain companies trading all agricultural commodities. Buying, selling and moving millions of bushels of grain on a daily basis was second nature to him. Whenever possible, Bryan enjoyed fast cars, old cars and old fast cars. He enjoyed driving the cars more than working on them. Bryan always rooted for the Kansas college teams and was loyal to K-State football even during the lean years.
He is survived by his spouse Deanna of Edmond OK; and two sisters, Lana Duvall of St. Francis, KS, and Lisa Duvall of Ellinwood, KS, and other relatives. He will be missed by friends and colleagues. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother and one sister.
