Bryan "Yin" Jeffries Celebration of Life

My name is Helen Jeffries. Bryan Anthony Jeffries was my son. To many, he was known simply as Bryan Yin. Bryan passed away on August 6, 2019. He was 34 years old. He was my only son. The news of his sudden and unexpected death was a total shock and has left all who knew him devastated. Many of Bryan's friends, co-workers, associates and acquaintances that I spoke with since his death described him as "a really good person, a really awesome person to be around, a beautiful soul, a good dude, a great friend, a legit guy, a solid guy, a great guy, a wonderful person, a true friend, a best friend, a great conversationalist, amazing, courteous, genuine, caring, honest, down to earth, he looked out for others, he was always smiling, he had a lot of love and touched almost everyone in some way that knew him, he was an incredibly kind soul, he was the greatest person they knew, he was like a big brother, he always offered kind words of advice, he had a great sense of humor, he had a real sense of self and of right and wrong, he was one of a kind, he had an enormous heart, he was such a wonderful sweet soul, he was always there if you needed a shoulder to cry on, he made a difference in a persons life". As his mother, I can say that he was definitely all that they described and much, much more.

I am Bryan's only surviving parent, and he had no type of life insurance at the time of his death. Therefore, I have been encouraged by many of his friends to create this GoFundMe account in an attempt to help defray some of the expenses that were incurred as a result of his sudden and unexpected death. In addition to defraying some of those expenses, the monies that are received as a result of your kind donations will also be used to help fund an upcoming "Celebration of Life" event for Bryan that is in the planning stages, purchase an urn for his remains and help with some of the day to day needs in the care of his child, a daughter named Edythe, who was only 2 months old at the time of her fathers death. 

If you would like to donate, please just click on the donate button and donate whatever amount you are able to. If you are not able to donate, please, no worries. But remember you can still leave messages and comments for me to read. 

My wish for having a "Celebration of Life" event in Bryan's honor is so that all who loved, admired and cared about him can hopefully get some type of closure for themselves and be able to start their own grief healing process.

Please follow this page if you would like to receive any updates regarding the upcoming date, time and location of the "Celebration of Life" for Bryan. Thank you!
