Brydon (by Jennifer)

Brydon is an amazing husband and father.  Rarely will you find a man as devoted as Brydon to putting his family first.  I feel so blessed to have met him and have him be a part of my life. I am a very lucky woman.  Brydon received a Biology degree from the University of Utah and then went on to Drexel University to receive a Master's in Public Health.  Brydon enjoys the world of science and wants to make a difference in the world.  He has worked hard to provide for his family and become the best husband and father possible. 
Brydon is an outdoors boy and a busy body.  He enjoys doing yard work, finding ways to improve the landscape of our home, going hunting, hiking, and cycling or running outside  Recently he has been able to spend a lot of time helping with the Boy Scout program and enjoys initiating teenage boys to the world of camping and hiking.  Brydon and his dad have been able to travel to Alaska a couple times for fishing, bear viewing, and hunting. He now has an obsession with Alaska and would love to go back regularly. 
Brydon loves our son, Caleb, so much.  He is such a good dad and can't wait to come home to spend time with his son.  You will often find the two of them building Lego's together, playing games, or goofing off and wrestling in the living room.  They also play outside and go for walks or ride bikes.  Caleb knows his dad loves him so much and I love seeing the two of them together.  There is no better sight then when daddy comes home and you hear Caleb yell and run into his dad's arms.   Brydon loves to be there to support Caleb, whether it be helping him learn how to ride his bike or learning how to swim or read books.  It is heartwarming to watch Brydon beam with pride as Caleb continues to grow and accomplish new things.  They have a sweet relationship and you will often hear Caleb talk about how he wants to be just like his dad.
There is nothing quite like watching a father with his little girl. I am so grateful for such a loving man to teach our daughter how a man should treat a woman. There is not a moment that goes by that he does not tell her she is beautiful and no-one loves to kiss her cheeks more than Daddy. Arabella lights up every time Daddy comes home and Brydon would do anything to keep her safe and loved. When we first learned about Arabella's diagnosis, Brydon's first instinct was to make sure no-one ever made fun of her or hurt her. Any child would be lucky to have this man as their father. He truly loves with his whole heart.
Brydon's dad is his best friend and has been a huge inspiration and role model to Brydon.  These 3 boys love spending time together outdoors.  They spend a lot of time talking about all the adventures they will go on together.
Six years ago, Brydon was commissioned as a Public Health Officer in the United States Air Force.  He is truly a man who puts God first, his family second, and his country third.  We are so proud to serve our country and be a military family.  Brydon is truly the hero of our family.  Schooling and finding his dream job, were not easy for him, but he constantly moved forward and never gave up.  Now he is an admirable officer in the United States Air Force, an amazing father, and kind compassionate husband.  I am truly blessed!
