Remembering Bryan Vaughan

Bryan Vaughan, who has been Mara's everything for the past 24 years, unexpectedly passed away on Monday April 27th, 2020. Bryan lost a tough battle against an unforeseen illness that rendered him helpless in critical care for 13 days. At this time the family is still in shock and trying to comprehend how their shattered world will go on.  Bryan leaves behind his wife Mara, their two daughters Mia and McKinlea and their son Collin.


Bryan was a dedicated husband, father, businessman and coach.  He was the life of the party, the sole provider for his family, and a well-respected member of his community. Bryan and Mara have both always been pretty private people and have been reluctant to seek the help of others. Mara and Bryan have been a tight-knit team for the past 24 years and to lose her other half is devastating. Bryan still had so much life to live and memories to make with his family. 

Mara is grieving while still taking care of their 3 children including their beautiful daughter McKinlea who is who is on the Autism spectrum and has Epilepsy. We know that Mara cannot do this alone.  Bryan was a friend to all and her family needs the support of everyone who is able and willing to donate money, prayers or their help. 

All money raised will go directly to Mara Vaughan.  She will use the money as needed to cover the insurmountable medical expenses incurred from Bryan’s critical hospital care, memorial expenses, care for her family as well as anything else that she deems appropriate.  As Bryan was the sole provider for their family it is imperative that we are able to help provide needed funds. Mara will need this assistance to provide for the most immediate issues including: continuing care for their kids, medical needs, baseball expenses, schooling, and so many other expenses she will now face as a single parent. 

Mara and her family are dealing with this unbelievable loss and heartache, but we now have the chance to help relieve some of the financial burden from her shoulders.  Please donate and please spread the word of this campaign.

Any help you can provide for the Vaughan family during this tragic time is greatly appreciated. We’ve heard from friends, neighbors, colleagues, baseball families, community members and business associates that want to help Bryan and Mara's family. This is your opportunity to help them and show your love and support.

To know Bryan was to love him, he was a friend to all.
