Lowell LaVoy Bryner, 82, died February 25, 2021 in West Valley City Utah from kidney and heart failure. Although his heart physically failed him, his love for his family and the heart of his testimony, the gospel of Jesus Christ endures.

Born May 9, 1938 to Alma Lloyd and Eunice Bryner the oldest child of 7 children. He married Karin Leni Angelika Kremulat in the Logan Utah Temple on March 18, 1963. Lowell served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to the Swiss/Austria mission.

Lowell is a man of faith. Since 1978 he and his wife Karin had a regular temple assignment in the Salt Lake Temple and later in the Jordan River Temple. He honored his family heritage and along with his wife Karin participated in the 1997 commemorative Mormon Pioneer Trail reenactment. Lowell valued his lifetime membership to the Sons of the Utah Pioneers. Lowell and Karin volunteered for nearly 20 years at This Is the Place Heritage Park serving as docents. They both enjoyed a few trips to church historical sites including upstate New York and Nauvoo.
Lowell has a love for this country. He served in the 142 Military Intelligence Linguistic Company, Sergeant First Class E7 and served as a translator. He retired a veteran of the Cold War.

Lowell’s happiest moments were spending time with his family. He was especially pleased with the temple marriages of his posterity and marriage to his sweetheart Karin. Lowell worked hard, loved cars and racing, and could always be heard whistling a happy tune.

Lowell is survived by his dear wife Karin, children Sylvia (Scott) Gines, Thomas (Tamara) Bryner, Christine Anderson, Barbara (David) Gill, Michael (Stephanie) Bryner, 19 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren with more on the way. His siblings Carolyn Losee, Vaudys Dummer, Duane Bryner, Clifford Bryner, and Kathy Christensen.

Lowell is preceded in death by his parents, sister Marsha and son-in law Brian Anderson.

So sorry for your loss.
You and your family are in our thoughts.

These pictures are wonderful ! You captured the many sides of his personality. He loved to talk, to listen, to teach, to interact, to debate, to inspire, share scripture knowledge, he loved cars and planes and to talk about them, he was interested in all my travel talk between adventures and trips I took, he was the tipping point that my first trip to Germany was a good idea. He had the best slow laugh and yes 😗 whistling. He loved the German language and his connections to his historical past. He was a super great uncle to my brothers and I- from priesthood blessings, standing in the circle for various blessing and ordinations, talks and guidance and just caring. He will be missed. My sympathies to all the family- my aunt, his siblings and my cousins. Love to all. Bettina

My thoughts and prayers with Karin and your family at this difficult time. I will always cherish the memories of my few conversations I had with Lowell at the county. Everything from our heritage, religion, family and cars. May his memory be eternal. Mike Grobstein

I am deeply saddened by Lowell's passing. He was a kind and loving brother. He was kind to everyone. When he was serving his mission, I was still experiencing an occasional nightmare. My mother would comfort me by telling me to think of Lowell. It worked every time. I love his family very much.

Love you Uncle Lowell!

My dear Bryner friends,

I am so sorry that another mortal loss has come to your immediate family. I will forever be grateful that Lowell and Karin decided to make Jasmine Street your home. I will always consider you guys as my second family. It was at your house that I developed my love for thick, homemade french fries; trampolines (you had the bounciest one in town and it gave me my first stiches); bikes (you had the coolest racing/bmx bikes and gave me confidence to jump); video games (the finest 3.5” floppy-disk games), and other things. I learned about bidets (though I never dared use it). You had cool cars and a boat. The days hanging out at your house with Michael, with no care in the World, are days I will always cherish.

Lowell was not a man of many words (at least to me), but he always treated me with warmth and kindness. Also, to this day, I’ve never heard a man with a built-in tracker. You could hear Lowell whistling a mile away! Lowell, may you rest in peace knowing you raised an amazing family, all of whom have remained true to the Faith. As with Paul, you have fought a good fight, finished your course, and kept the faith. God bless you and your family. Rest in peace; until we meet again!

- Eric Andersen

I am saddened by the loss of Lowell, but not surprised that he was faithful to the end. We worked together numerous times as missionaries in Austria and I always felt blessed by his companionship. He was a faithful, humble man with great faith in Jesus Christ. Our prayers and blessings to a great family. Bob Daynes

Lowell as a big influence on my life. He taught me to ride a bike, how to do some work on mechanical things and encouraged me to join the military. He always wanted to know how I was really doing and loved to hear my stories of flying. One highlight was his visit to the SLC airport when I flew my military T-37 in on a cross country flight. Thanks for being there for ma from my youth to my wedding to now. A great man with a powerful legacy of faith, the love of family and gratitude for freedom.
