Burnis Earl Bryant
Mr. Burnis Earl Bryant went home to be with the Lord, The morning of May 8, 2017.
There are not enough words to express who he was, to and for, so many people throughout his life. His devotion to his life in Christ and his integrity was without measure. From his time of Manager for the Rev. Ruben Jones tent ministry to his works at the Trent River Free Will Holiness Youth Camp and Organization, his life has been spent devoted to making things ready behind the scenes for the work of the Lord in the TRFWH Association. Along with his wife, Rev. Dr. Joyce Jones Bryant, they traveled and worked for the Lord their whole lives. He served on the Board of Directors for the Association.
His life’s work includes the Lundy Packing Co., and Thermopane LOF Glass Company (aka Interpane) both in Clinton, NC.
He attended NC State at Winston-Salem and traveled extensively for the Glass Company to train fork lift drivers and loading trucks for proper glass transport as well as being a supervisor with the Interpane Company. His window works can be seen in many major cities around the world including the USA.
His fascination and his knowledge of classic cars met no match and he loved his Atlanta Braves.
He is featured in the Sampson County History Museum for his near death explosion accident of 1948 at the age of 16 years old.
His dedication as a Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Brother, Brother in law, and friend has been nothing less than amazing.
He was preceded in death by his precious wife of 56 years, Rev. Dr. Joyce Bryant, Mother, Sadie Merritt Bryant, and Father, George Bryant.
