Dear Bryan

Morgan Pierce and Grace Monacelli

Dulaney High School’s athletic trainer, Bryan Fulton Read, passed away from colon cancer on Aug. 27, 2019 at 36-years-old. Dulaney hosted a “memorial mile” on Sept. 15, 2019 at 9 a.m. in his memory. Here is our tribute to him and his unwavering commitment to our school:

Dear Bryan,
You were a part of the Dulaney community for years and devoted a majority of your time to serving our student body. Your selfless nature and compassionate heart will not be forgotten. To honor your legacy, members of our community have expressed their admiration of your legacy.

Alumni Mae Dickens worked closely with you throughout her senior year. She felt that you put “a hundred and ten percent of your energy” into helping injured Dulaney athletes get back to doing what they love.

Dickens also said that you had an “unbreakable commitment and friendly… and positive personality” that was held together by “an even stronger willed heart.” She, along with the rest of Dulaney, wants you to know that your altruism inspired us all to be better people.

Basketball coach Matt Lochte upholds similar beliefs to that of Dickens.

“Bryan was just a good dude. There are just no words I can find to match the devastation at hand. Coach Read did a lot for my guys, and he did it out of the goodness of his heart. He didn’t have to come in every day when he was at his worst, but he did, and that is a good man.”

We posed the question: “How do you remember Bryan?” Not a soul had anything but cordial and positive things to say. The Dulaney family agreed that the best words to describe you were “friendly,” “positive” and “selfless.”

Bryan, your memory is upheld in the highest manner and you will be greatly missed. When we think of you, know that we are remembering a genuine person that radiated an infatuating positive energy.

Through your own fight, you helped us with ours, no matter how big or small. Thank you for all you did for us, your memory and spirit will remain with us forever.

Your Dulaney Family
