De’Andre Mellick Olday-Bryant was born to his parents, Samika S. Olday and the late Douglass Lee Bryant on September 27, 1993 in Darby, PA. He was abruptly called to his heavenly home on August 6, 2020 in Pittsburgh, PA. De’Andre, his mother and his sister, Germirah A. Dailey, moved to Pittsburgh when he was in the fourth grade and he attended elementary and high school through the Pittsburgh Public Schools. He was a precocious and mischievous child. One time, as a little boy, he took apart a large fan leaving it in pieces. He smiled at his mother proudly at what he had done. “His mother’s response was to put everything back together or you cannot go out to play” and put it back together he did. He got the fan together in 60 minutes and it worked even better than before. Not bad for a fifth grader! He had a big heart and his favorite thing to do was listen to music, hang out with friends and joke around with his mother. De’Andre, or Dre’, as his family affectionately called him, was a devoted father who loved playing with his children. During his short time here, he worked as a security guard for several companies in Pittsburgh.
