Ronald “Ron” Bryant

1951-2014

bryant, ronald picRonald (“Ron”) Edward Bryant was born on September 5, 1951 in Richland, Washington to Joseph H. Bryant and Norma Gene (Youker). Ron graduated from Perry High School and attended NOC. He worked for many years as a loyal employee of Safeway/Homeland, and then Reliable Termite. He was an avid fan of the OU Sooners & the Pittsburgh Steelers, and never missed a game. He spent a great part of his life at his favorite fishing holes, tubing around, waiting on the next large mouth bass to bite. The “original Beatle”, he was a lifelong musician & lover of music. Hardly a day went by that he didn’t pick up his guitar, or sing along to an album or his reel to reel recordings. He loved reading everything from the Bible to Stephen King.

He is preceded in death by his mother, Gene Bryant, and brother-in-law, Mark Passow. He is survived by his father, Joseph Bryant, of Perry; lifelong love, Barbara Bryant, of Edmond; daughters, Brandi Bickford (husband Denny) and Sherri Fitch, of Edmond; brothers, Patrick Bryant (wife Patricia), of Chesterfield, MO; Jeff Bryant (wife Barbie), of Colorado Springs, CO; a sister, Brenda Passow, of Ft. Collins, CO; three adored granddaughters (who called him “Grumpa”), Maycee and Isabella Fitch, and Maddie Bickford, all of Edmond. Also, two nieces, four nephews, and many other loved ones.

All that knew him will miss his soft heart and generous spirit. Thanks to those who helped & supported him along the way. He fought the battle, but in the end, the Lord helped him win the war. Memorials in his honor may be given to Rob’s Ranch and The City Rescue Mission. A celebration of his life will be held, Friday, November 14th at 11:00 a.m, at Southern Hills Christian Church in Edmond. Final resting place McGuire Cemetery, Lucien, OK.

  1. This is one guy that picked the best family in the world to live his life with. . . lots of good memories from lots of people. Love you all!

  2. Daddy, you have left a big hole in my heart by leaving us so soon but I know that you had to go. I love you so much and will remember every good time we had all these years. You were the greatest man in my life and I am so blessed to have been one of your 2 precious daughters. Thank you for giving me the gifts of music, love, and forgiveness. You were right when you said that it’s all about how you treat people…love is all you need. I bet you are up there in heaven right now, jammin with Harrison and Lennon. I love you more than you could ever know and will miss you and think of you every single day until I see you again.

    Ron was a very good person. And he had such a wonderful family. I have never seen such unconditional love given to a person that I saw my friend Barbara give to him. He was a very lucky guy. I know you all will miss him, but I feel he felt it was time for him to let go and to let you also have peace. I am sure he is looking down and watching over all of you and those special granddaughters. I will be praying for you to have peace and comfort.

    Love Melody

Love the time we got to spend together my friend but I know it’s not goodbye it’s I’ll see you later. There’s no doubt in my mind that you’re with the creator today. Love and miss you brother but I know you’re walking by our heavenly fathers side!

  5. I’m so sorry you left earth too soon Uncle Ron. You were a good man and will be missed by many.

  6. Although I didn’t know Ron personally, I know he was deeply loved by his lifelong partner Barbara Bryant and all their girls. What a blessing to have had many good memories to cherish, through it all. He’s resting now, but always with you all in spirit. always!
    Blessings and prayers to the entire family.

  7. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. He was in good hands here with a family that loved him dearly but in better hands now with The Lord where there will be a great home coming one day.

  8. Hey daddy! 3 days ago was our 1st Father’s Day since you left. Brandi and I sent some balloons out to you at Arcadia. I hope you were watching! We went to see Gpa Joe today…it’s so good to talk to him. I feel like I have a little piece of you still here when I see him and talk with him!! I miss you so much still everyday. I love you, daddy!
