Bryant attended local schools and was a member of the First Baptist Church of Waldoboro. He was a farmer and laborer for most of his life. He worked at Morse’s Sauerkraut in Waldoboro and was also a custodian at the Medomak Valley High School. He retired from work so he could stay home and take care of his wife.

He spent time watching NASCAR racing, old westerns and old movies and listened to old country music with his wife.
Bryant was an active CB radio ham and enjoyed talking with others. After Bryant moved to the Knox Center he took annual summer trips to visit his wife’s grave at the German Cemetery. He was a dedicated provider for his family.
