Bryan was born June 14, 1978 in Provo, Utah to Alan and Beverly Mills Silker. He graduated from the Sugar Salem High School. He was an accomplished heavy equipment operator at several local ski resorts; snow grooming was a passion. He presently owned a log home restoration business.
Bryan Silker, generous, kind, athletic, strong, funny, sweet and compassionate, was loved by all and will be missed and remembered by so many. Bryan, a longtime local, was infectious with his gregarious personality. He lived life to the fullest and he encouraged others to do the same. He was an avid climber, skier, fisherman and dirt biker; he felt that the mountains were his home. He was a loving friend who could spend all night discussing philosophical issues, world events, or just everyday life. His myriad interests and jovial nature drew others to him. He was blessed with the talent of design and constructing and applied those skills at work, at home and in help to the people he loved. He became proud of the goats, chickens, garden and other side projects that he pursued at his home. If asked all he wanted to do was help people. Bryan was also a great cook and would share great food with the people he loved. If there was a party Bryan wanted to be there, actually he created the parties. Bryan was proud of the new climbing routes he had just bolted at the Rock Springs Buttress. He'd love for you to climb them in his memory. He is survived by his parents Alan and Beverly Silker of Island Park, Idaho; his girlfriend Lindsey Asselin; a sister Wendy (Brett) Price of Malad and a niece Adilynn.
