Bryan William Summy

Bryan William Summy, 27, of Albuquerque, NM, passed away December 23, 2017 in his sleep due to health complications. He was born August 21, 1990 in Silver City, NM to Scott and Dora Summy. He grew up in Gallup, NM and graduated high school from Gallup High School in 2008. He was involved in all sports and as a percussionist. Bryan went on to continue his education at Eastern New Mexico University where he majored in Business and was a part of the Greyhound Sound Marching Band and Concert band as a percussionist for 3 years.

Bryan was an avid sports fan and a diehard Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, Duke Basketball, and Los Angeles Lakers fan. Bryan enjoyed music and took pride as a member of all marching bands, praise bands, jazz bands, and concert bands. Bryan worked primarily in retail and customer service, where he was able to thrive with his extrovert and welcoming personality, as he was a stranger to no one. Bryan attended First Baptist Church in Gallup, NM where he first met his wife. Bryan was a family man in every sense of the word and especially cherished every moment with his son.

Bryan is survived by his wife, Erica (Williams) Summy and his son, Sean Lee Summy; his parents Scott and Dora Summy; his brothers Steven Summy and Dylan Summy. He also leaves his maternal grandmother, Consuelo Salas of Bayard, NM; and his paternal grandparents, Ronny Hodgkins and Gail Hodgkins of Kilgore, TX. He is also survived of several beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Dear Summy Family, I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Times like this can be very difficult to deal with. At times, you may feel like there is no one to turn to. You may even feel like no one understands your pain. But there is one person we can turn to that can help us through all of our trials. Yes, God can help you during this difficult time. Pray to him constantly and he will help you. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Isa. 26:19)

Over the past several days since I heard the news I’ve been flooded with memories of Bryan and his time in the Band at GHS. From the flying metal in rehearsal to the dance in Durango to hilarious references from favorite TV shows, there are too many to list. He was a wonderful percussionist and a fantastic person. I was so blessed to have had the opportunity to have him as a student. I’m sad that I cannot be there today to celebrate the life of this young man but my heart is with the Summy family and all those in attendance today. God bless you and be with you.

Brian and I met at foot action and clicked instantly over our love for shoes. We had so much in common and could talk for hours about sports and shoes. I am deeply saddened and heartbroken for y’all, his family. I got him a job at plains dairy here with me for a short period before they loved. He was the nicest most kindest gentlist person I met. May god be with him and yalls family. Love Kasey
