OBITUARY: William Houston Bryant

obituary for William Houston Bryant

William Houston Bryant, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, passed away peacefully on June 30, 2024, in Nashville, TN. He was born on December 7, 1955, in Chicago, IL, to his loving parents Arthur Houston and Willie Kate Bryant.

William led a fulfilling life as the Co-Owner of Above Standard Building Maintenance and dedicated 22 years to the Army National Guard before retiring. His work ethic and dedication were evident in everything he pursued. Those who knew William remember him as a caregiver, a friendly face to all he met, a man of God, and above all, a hard worker.

In his leisure time, William found joy in simple pleasures like fishing, mowing his yard with precision, and scrolling through his phone while listening to country music. However, nothing brought him more happiness than spending quality time with his family. One of his fondest memories was grilling out with his loved ones.

William’s proudest accomplishment was the family he built with his devoted wife of 49 years, Mary Bryant. Together they raised three wonderful children: sons, Chris (Rachel) Bryant and John (Rachel) Bryant and daughter, Michelle Hutcherson. His grandchildren Robert Morgan, Ashley Bryant, Makayla Bryant, CJ Bryant, Kelby Driver, Ella Bryant, and great-granddaughter Ivy Morgan were the apples of his eye.

He is also survived by his siblings Sheila (Mike) Sweeney and Kenneth Bryant. William will be deeply missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing him.

The visitation services for William Houston Bryant will be held at Springfield Memorial Gardens Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Springfield Tennessee on July 2nd from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM and on July 3rd from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM followed by a Celebration of Life at 10:00 AM. A burial service will take place at the same location on July 3rd at 11:00 AM.

William’s absence leaves a void in the lives of many but his memory will be cherished forever in the hearts of those who loved him. May he rest in peace knowing he was deeply loved and will never be forgotten.
