Obituary of Timothy M. Bryant
Please share a memory of Timothy to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Timothy M. Bryant departed this life on February 2, 2023. He had just turned 36 years old. His goofy and childish spirit would leave the saddest of people smiling.
In his earlier years he was an avid basketball player, fisherman, loved camping, four wheeling, spending time with the true love of his life – his daughter, Jaelyn and hanging with family and friends. Through life's journey and unforeseen circumstances, Timothy lost touch with who he was, and battled with his own demons. As we all struggle with something, Tim just couldn't overcome his inner struggles.
He lost his way, but those that truly loved and knew him held on to the image of the youthful soul with the silly grin, and prayed for his return. If you really knew Tim, then you understand who he became – was not who he was.
Sometimes people have battles that are bigger than themselves. Despite the course his life took, he was loved and cherished by many. On February 2, 2023 Tim stopped fighting and entered into eternal rest. If you had the pleasure to know Tim, and were blessed to see him as his "best" self, then you know what a tremendous loss his absence is to all closest to him. Please remember him as the young boy with a big heart and a pocket full of dreams.

The best and most special parts of you will live on through your baby girl, Jaelyn. I love you always, forever and a day, because forever isn't long enough. Until we meet again. Spread your wings, lay down your load, release your burdens and go rest in the arms of mommy.
