Bryon Jacob Barding, 20, of Jefferson City, died Wednesday, June 2, 2010, at his grandparent's home. He was born on May 13, 1990, in San Angelo, Texas, the son of Dharma L. Barding Cantrell who resides in San Antonio, Texas. Bryon is missed by everyone who came to know him and he will forever be remembered as an exceptionally kind and gentle person whose all too brief life was confronted by unimaginable hardships which he overcame without complaint and whose joyfulness brought light to all of our lives. A special heartfelt thanks goes to Rose Blankenship and her family for their untiring love and devotion to Bryon and to the entire staff at the Rusk Rehabilitation Center, University Hospital in Columbia, and all those at Capital Region Medical Center who worked with Bryon over the six years of his rehabilitation. Other survivors include: two siblings, Sutton Cantrell and Lauren Cantrell, both of San Antonio, Texas; and his grandparents, James Douglas and Nanette Marie Barding, Jefferson City.
