Brycen Bailee George went to be with God on April 26, 2018, far before his time at age 23. He was born on Nov. 8, 1994 in Grangeville to Angela and the late Tony George.
Brycen grew up in Kamiah where he always kept his family on their toes. When Brycen was three, he had his first broken arm because he tried to fly off of the couch with a cape on, convinced he was a super hero. He would go on to break his arm three more times, once trying to do an ollie on a skateboard, once hitting a tree on his dirt bike and the final time, roller skating. By the fourth time, he had become a professional at broken arm diagnosis. In addition to the broken arms, Brycen had many other accidents throughout the years, this is a testament to the way he lived his life, full throttle. Brycen was always full of life; anyone who knew him would agree. When you think of Brycen, you think of his smile and his sense of humor. His personality was magnetic and you couldn’t help but be pulled in.
Brycen attended school in Kamiah. His favorite part about it was always sports; he excelled in football wearing #44 and won state in 2012 with the Kubs. He graduated from Kamiah High School in 2013 with a very tight knit class.
After high school, Brycen went on to work for King’s Thrones which truly became his second family. He enjoyed his days with the company and putting his CDL to use. After his time at King’s Thrones, Brycen went on to work for Knife River Corporation in Boise, Idaho, fostering his passion for diesel engines and learning a new trade.
Brycen had many hobbies, including diesel engines, snowmobiles, drumming, metal and old country music, and being outdoors. If you needed someone to help you with anything, Brycen was your man. He had a heart bigger than most and wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. Most recently, Brycen loved his new role of uncle. He decided he would call his nephew Waylon and couldn’t be convinced to call him by his real name; they would both light up when they saw each other.
Though Brycen’s time on this earth was cut short, his memory will live on forever through his family and friends.
Brycen is survived by a family full of grief, his mother, Angela Langston and husband Bruce, siblings Breeana Reiner and husband Mark, Cassidee Fletcher, Garrett Langston, Kayla George. and Casey George; his grandparents Patti and Duane Morris, and Judy George; his nephew Nolan Reiner, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father, Tony George, and grandfather Theron George.
Keep that Cummins in between the mustard and mayonnaise up there buddy until we meet again.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Trenary Funeral Home of Kooskia.
