Bryan George Arrington, 40, passed away peacefully on Wednesday February 17, 2021, held close in the arms of his love, life, ‘favorite’ wife, Katrina.
Born in Waynesille, NC on February 13, 1981 to parents Philip and Dawn (Jones) Arrington. Bryan, of course, was ready to go and arrived 30 minutes ahead of his twin sister, Brandy. Soon after, the family moved to Walterboro, SC. Bryan enjoyed growing up in the Lowcountry and spent many happy weekends and summers with his family back in Waynesville.
Bryan attended school in Walterboro and graduated from Walterboro High School in 2000. He always talked about the good times he had and the lifelong friendships he gained there. He especially enjoyed his time in The Band of Blue. He was also an active member of the First Baptist Church there in Walterboro, SC.
Bryan knew from an early age what he wanted to do in life. He was blessed with a true gift and passion for culinary arts. He took culinary classes in high school and continued his studies in college at Trident Tech. in Charleston, SC. Bryan was a well know local chef in South Carolina. He was an asset to every restaurant in which he worked. He was proud of his menus and recipes and loved to see people enjoying his creations.
The creations for which he is most proud, are his children. He loved being a father and always made time for his family. Bryan met his wife, Katrina, early in life. They were good friends throughout high school, began dating in college, and were married May 14, 2005 on Edisto Beach, SC. They were true partners and the best of friends. Lucky in love, always.
Bryan loved music, sweet tea, fresh snow, his best friends, thunderstorms, quoting movies and inside jokes, The Packers, flip flops, and the beach. He loved family movie nights and video games with friends. He worked hard to provide for his family, to share his time, his life lessons, his favorite memories, and to fill the house with laughter. Those who know his laugh, know it was as infectious as his beautiful smile. He would ruin your bad mood, every time. He was larger than life, full of love, and had the kindest heart. Bryan was loved and a friend to all, he will be missed by so many.
