Mill Spring– On Thursday, May 11th, John “Bryson” aka Cowboy Ogle, age 10, passed in his home surrounded by his family and friends. He was a true hero and fought hard every day with his debilitating disease, Lissencephaly. Bryson is now in the arms of Jesus, running through the streets of gold, talking and fully whole.

Bryson is survived by his parents BJ and Jane Peterson Ogle of Mill Spring, NC, and sister Macie Ogle. Bryson also leaves behind grandmothers Dale Wilson and Beverly Dillon, and aunts Jennifer Ogle Lynch, Sandi Cole, Mary Peterson, and Kim Peterson. His cousins he leaves behind include Hunter Lynch, Caitlin Peterson, Hannah Peterson, Avery Hargro, Kloie Peterson, Coleman Peterson, and Zariyah Ramirez. Special family members also include Krista Ramirez and Dimi Ortiz and all the in-home care team who helped care for Bryson over the years. We could not have done life without you all. He was preceded in death by Grandfathers John Howard Peterson, John “Roger” Ogle, and Lee Dillon as well as his uncle, John Smith “Smitty” Peterson.
