Bryce was an elite athlete and competed in the Toronto Marathon in under 3 hours at the age of 16. He excelled in martial arts earning a black belt in Shotokan-style karate.
As an amateur stage actor, Bryce debuted in Hill Cumorah Pageant in New York and the off-Broadway production of Evita in Toronto.

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Bryce volunteered in various callings to the ministry, including youth leadership and Sunday school teaching and community service projects.
In his love for God, Bryce composed a philosophical teaching of personal conduct and social behaviour entitled “The Tenets of Karate” with a call to live a life shaped by personal responsibility and development, selflessness, and enduring commitment to God. Bryce described his “love for the Lord Jesus Christ as his rock and strength” throughout his life.
His wonderful spirit, joy, and talents will be celebrated at a 1:00 pm visitation with service to follow at Meadowvale Funeral Centre – 7732 Mavis Road in Brampton, Ontario.
