Bryan John Appelget was born on December 3, 1966, in Minneapolis and adopted by John and Sharon (Pitner) Appelget. He grew up in Plymouth and played hockey and little league all through his school years. Bryan graduated from Wayzata High School. Bryan was united in marriage to Irene Newberg on October 8, 2000, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Parkers Prairie where they live. Bryan was an avid bowhunter and fisherman who cherished every moment in the woods or on the lake. He worked 13 years for Continental Bridge in Carlos until a serious fall which rendered him partially disabled. He would never hesitate to stop and help a stranger in need. There wasn’t anything Bryan wouldn’t do for anyone. Bryan loved plowing snow and being the go to guy.
He was preceded in death by his father, Anthony John.
