Charles James Bryant

February 15, 1934 ~ June 19, 2019 (age 85)

Life Story

A precious one from us has gone, a voice we loved is stilled;

A place is vacant in our home, which never can be filled.

God in his wisdom, has recalled the boon his love had given;

And though the body slumbers now, the soul is safe in heaven.

Born in Joplin, Missouri and later moving to Wichita, Kansas, Charles served as a demolition expert in the army during the Korean conflict. Upon returning he worked for many years for Cessna, Boeing and Learjet in Wichita.

He met and married the love of his life, Mary Phillips of Waubay, South Dakota. Together they had one daughter, Charnette Young of Dallas, TX.

Charles had a large extended family, was well loved by all and will be sorely missed. He was a man of strong moral character and always with a ready smile or witty comment. He was an avid amateur golfer, and well known around the golf courses of Wichita and the surrounding area. Charles belonged to the Masonic Fraternity.

Charles was preceded in death by his parents LeRoy and Thelma Bryant, his brother Roy Bryant, his sister Mona Carlson and niece Leale Carlson, all of Wichita, Kansas. He is survived by his wife Mary, daughter Charnette Young (John), grandsons Jeramiah, Matthew (Kacy) and Zachary Young, great-granddaughter Gabriella Young, and great-grandsons Bentley and Brody Young, all of Dallas, Texas, as well as his sister Joyce Haylor of Cheney, Kansas, brother Ben Bryant of Hot Springs, Arkansas, and numerous nieces, nephews & cousins.

Charles will be interred at the National Cemetery in Dallas on June 26th, 2019.
