He touched so many lives from preaching, coaching little league baseball or just being a listening ear. He retired from CSX as a laborer. His contagious smile and laugh are one that you will never forget. Terry loved spending time with his wife Rita, on the boat slaying fish and making lots of memories.

He was preceded in death along with his parents by his first wife Judy Bryant; son, Joshua Wayne Bryant; brother, Larry Joe Bryant; along with his grandparents, Long Joe and Bertha Osborne and Lee and Hannah Branham Bryant.

He is survived by his loving wife, Rita Bryant of forty-six years joined by God on April 3, 1976. son, Jeremy (Megan) Bryant; daughter, Jessica (Scott) Fox; sisters, Loretta Jean Cooper, Clara (Rick) Kouns, Jane (Chuck) Wright and Lisa (Richard) Bailey.
