Sureshot Redemption’s Bryn Netz Passes


It is with great sadness that we report that Bryn Netz, the funny, friendly and well-respected sales manager for Sureshot Redemption, passed away unexpectedly in his home in Palmdale, Calif., on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the age of 58. He is survived by his adult children, daughter Deanna and twin sons Kyle and Jacob, as well as his mother.

Bryn had been with the Southern California merchandise supplier for 20 years. The company’s Mike Lynch said, “Bryn was an integral part of our Sureshot team and a cherished member of our work family. His dedication, passion and unwavering support made a profound impact on all of us. Bryn’s sense of humor, and willingness to go above and beyond will forever be remembered and missed.”

Lynch said Bryn had just returned about a week before from his dream vacation: a two-week trip to Ireland and Scotland. He got back home the previous Wednesday, and it had been life and business as usual upon his return, with Bryn joining a regular Zoom meeting with colleagues the day before his passing.

“We are all struggling to come to terms with this sudden loss, and our hearts go out to Bryn’s family during this incredibly difficult time,” Lynch continued. “As we mourn this tragic loss, we will also celebrate the wonderful memories and moments we shared with Bryn.”

If you wish to offer your condolences or share your memories of Bryn, please feel free to reach out to Bryn’s children, Deanna, Kyle and Jacob at [email protected]. A celebration of life may be planned. RePlay will share the details when we get them.

“Bryn’s spirit, sense of humor and kindness will continue to inspire us, and his legacy will live on. We will miss Bryn more than words can express, but we will forever be grateful for the time we had together,” Lynch said.

Among Bryn’s enjoyments, said Sureshot’s Mike Lynch, were tequila and cigars, and listening to Sammy Hagar and Rush. Something readers likely don’t know is that when Bryn was younger, he was quite good at archery to the point of having Olympic potential.
