Mr. Bryce Anthony Ladner, age 24 of Pass Christian, died Friday afternoon, May 31, 2019, at Ochsner Medical Center.
Bryce was the oldest of two children to Cedric and Carrie Ladner, born July 9, 1994 in Gulfport. He grew up on Deschamp Road in Pass Christian, and from a very early age, loved the outdoors.
There were three things that Bryce did outside of work. He hunted, he fished, and he ran dogs in the fox pen. Those were his passions in life. After graduating from West Harrison HS in 2012, he worked for 747 Kennels at Old Bay Fox Pen, doing whatever needed to be done, as he sent most of his time there anyway. In 2014, he secured an entry level position at Brown & Root, and quickly worked his way up to becoming a certified electrician.
Leaving those who loved him far too early, Bryce is described as a humble man; a caring, thoughtful and helpful guy with a great sense of humor. Bryce was empathetic and extremely intelligent. He will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.
His grandparents, Revernal "Puddy" Ladner, Alberta Martin, and Dale Faulk, preceded him in death.
He is survived by his loving parents, Cedric and Carrie Ladner; his only sister, Breanna (Matthew) Ewing; a niece, Brelee; a nephew, Camden Ewing; grandparents, Peggy Ladner, Melvin and Patricia Ely, Kent Martin, and Abby Faulk; a god-daughter, Caydrian Cuevas; and his fiancé, Felicia Holt.
Bryce had others he referred to as family as well, including parents B.J. and Libby Saucier; and his brothers, Tyler (Moriah) Pavolini, Dylan (Lynsie) Ladner, and Nick Saucier, all of whom he loved dearly.
Services were held Thursday, June 6, at Old Bay Fox Pen. Burial followed in the Wolf River Cemetery.
Trinity Funeral Services is honored to serve the Ladner family in their time of need, and asks everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Memories may be shared at www.trinityfunerals.net.
