Bryan was born November 5, 1965 in Rock Island, Illinois, son of Willard “Mike” and Beverly Hillyer Prescott. Prior to his retirement, he was a detailing manager for many years.  

Bryan was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed fishing, mushroom hunting, and soaking in whatever nature had to offer. Bryan loved his family with everything he had in his heart. He always told of stories from his childhood with his beloved brothers and sisters. His children were his pride and joy. He worked hard every day to provide for his family and give them the best life they could ask for. Bryan wrote the book on "dad jokes". If you needed a laugh, he knew how to give it to you, even when you least expected it. He loved history and was always out to learn more. Bryan held his beloved dog Lucy close to his heart and enjoyed taking care of her. Above being an amazing brother, husband, and father, he was the best grandfather you could ask for. Bryan loved his grandchildren very much, as they will love and speak of him forever. The stories of him will echo on for those who are, and yet to be. 

Surviving are his children, Nina (Jeffrey) Oldham, Walcott, Iowa and Travis (Julia) Prescott, Milan, Ill.; grandchildren, Landyn, RaeLynn and Henryck; mother, Beverly Prescott, Milan; sisters, Nancy Prescott, Moline, Ill. and Theresa (Steve) Peterson, Warrenville, Ill.; brothers, Mark Prescott, Andalusia, Jeffrey Prescott and Doug Prescott, bo‚Äčth of Milan; and numerous nieces, nephews, and additional family.  

Bryan was preceded in death by his father and one sister, Julie Rae.
