  1. I am very sorry for your loss. I taught Brian science as a freshman and he was one of the nicest, hardest working kids I’ve had in my 20 years at Kennett. Some kids leave your class and don’t say much to you again, not Bryan. He said hi every day he walked by my room. He was definitely one of the best. He will be missed.

  2. I imagine there is no pain more far-reaching and deeper than losing a child. My heart and prayers go out to you and the Ayllon Family at this most difficult time. When I think of Brian, I can remember just how sweet, respectful, and caring of a person he was. He was truly a magnet for the little ones and I could see why he was so loved. During his short time on this earth he definitely made a long-lasting impression on so many people, including me. We pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief.

    With our deepest sympathy,
    Kia & Romard Palmer

  6. Brian was honestly the friendliest person I have ever known. His heart and his arms were open to everyone. I loved the way that he made every person feel like a friend. Brian was such a talented young man and he really did inspire me with his writing in Farrago and musically. We all love and miss you Brian.

  7. I am so sorry for your loss! Brian was an amazing young man with so much talent! I am the bus aide on the bus that he and Kassie rode. He was always so sweet to all of the other students and I have many fond memories of him, Kassie and myself joking around and talking. He truly will be missed! If you guys need anything please do not hesitate to get in contact with me! Much love and respect!

  8. Dear Allyon Family,

    Words cannot properly express my deepest sympathies for your tragic loss. I am a school bus driver (Bus 3) who has driven the Kennett Band many times to games and competitions. Brian was a kind and happy addition, and will undoubtedly be very missed by those who knew and loved him. My heart goes out to you at this time.

  9. Brian Ayllon was one of the most amazing and wonderfully talented people ive ever known I am so sorry for the loss to his family. For the past 2 years I was lucky enough to march with Brian in the flute section of the Kennett high school marching band so of course I will be there to support him and his family.

  10. I met Brian last year at Kennett when I moved here. Him and I were the only guys in the tenor section of the Acapella group. Although I was new to the school and didn’t know many people Brian welcomed me with open arms. I remember practicing and sharing music with him. Anytime the group was stressed out before a performance he would reassure us with his bright smile and warm hugs. That year I also had the pleasure of doing the musical Oklahoma with him. I remember getting very nervous on the opening night of the show but Brian was offstage with me telling me how great of an actor I was. Throughout the whole time I knew him he was never negative. Always a shining ball of optimism to keep everyone’s spirits up, truly an unselfish person. I’m happy that I got to have the honor to know him. If I ever saw an angel, it had to be him. My deepest sympathy to the whole family.

  11. Brian was an amazing, cheerful person that always lit up the room. He never had a frown on his face and wanted to make everybody feel good even if he didn’t. He was a hard working, smart and very talented young man. During every game, I marched with him for 2 years, he would make sure that everyone was excited even if the game wasn’t going well. I am deeply sorry for your loss and hope that his legacy that he left within in the Kennett Community and beyond will never be forgotten.

  12. Maricela, Kassie and the entire Ayllon family,

    Brian’s passing is a tremendous and tragic loss. He was without a doubt one of the smartest and kindest students I’ve ever had the pleasure of teaching and getting to know. He was a mature, caring, and thoughtful leader. I always enjoyed seeing him and catching up with him, no matter how briefly, well after he’d graduated from KMS. Ahora está tocando la música, cantando, y sonriendo con los angelitos. Que descanse en paz.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
    -Kate McKenzie

  15. I am so sorry for your loss. I met him on a field trip last year and he became a great friend. We will miss you, that one picture we took together is somewhere and I’m gonna find it one way or another

  18. To the Ayllon family, I pray that our gracious God will bring you all peace at this most difficult time. Each month the Education Committee at Tick Tock recognizes an employee for their dedication and service. About a week and a half ago, I stopped at Tick Tock to present Brian with this recognition. When I arrived, Brian was out back keeping his students happy and entertained. I walked over to Brian, shook his hand and said “Congratulations, Brian, you are December’s Employee of the Month.” I presented him with a frame which showcased Brian, his interests, his favorite foods, his favorite book, his favorite TV shows. Brian smiled from ear to ear and yelped “yeh”! Although Brian did not know at that time, Brian’s joyful smile at that moment was a gift to me and the students who were present. I pray that after the sadness and grief lessens, you remember that same joyful smile that Brian gifted to all those he knew. God bless.

What a great memory the small children at Tick Tock and I have of Brian….just a beautiful moment in time. Brian’s joyful smile will remain with me. I pray that after the grief lessens, you too will find peace in remembering that same joyful smile! God bless to all.

  20. I did not know your son personally but he and my daughter marched together at ToR. When Kennett played Oxford he and my daughter exchanged hugs and he was so happy for her that she became Drum Major at Oxford. My prayers are with you and your family. Honestly I don’t hnow what to say about your tragic loss.

  21. Dear Maricela, Roberto, Edson and Kassandra,
    I want to let you know how truly sorry I am for your loss. My heart is breaking for all of you right now. Maricela, I remember Brian, Edson and Kassie from when they were young children when we worked together for years. I remember the First Communion parties and then seeing you and the children again at After the Bell a couple of years ago and seeing what wonderful young adults they had become which is a credit to you and Roberto. It’s very difficult to even know what to say to someone when there is this tragic loss but know that you have the love and support of all those who love you and your family. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you. Heaven has gained another angel. Te quiero. Linda

  24. Dear Ayllon Family,

    My sincere condolences to you. I am just a parent of Kennett High School students, Larhyn Long (11th Grade) and Luc Long (10th Grade). I am not sure my children knew your son Brian. To lose a loved one is at the very least unbearable, especially when it’s your child. I pray that the God of all comfort keep you all in His perfect peace by His Holy Spirit as you continue to trust in Him your Lord and Savior. May you reflect on the most wonderful memories of your son to help you through this most difficult time.
