Donald Dean Bryant

August 09, 1945 ‒ July 23, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

Donald Dean Bryant, age 74, passed away peacefully, with family by his side, on Thursday, July 23, 2020, in Delaware, OH. He was born August 9, 1945 in Sunbury, OH to the late Donald and Lillian (Smith) Bryant.

Left to cherish Dean’s memory are his two daughters Donna Bryant, Brenda (Doug) Kensinger, five grandsons Justin (Brittany) and Jeremy Bryant, James Buckingham, Alexander and Vincent Kensinger; four great-grandchildren Allye and Jeremy Bryant (Jeremy), Kodiak and Talon Bryant (Justin); brothers: Richard (Patty) Bryant, and Dale Bryant; and several other relatives and friends.

In addition to his parents, Dean was preceded in death by his brother, Raymond Bryant; and sister, Jean Maxwell.

He was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army. Among his favorite activities were gardening, cooking, and playing cards. Dean was an avid gardener, who won many prizes at the Delaware County Fair for his flowers and vegetables. He was a skilled cook, who loved to prepare a large Sunday dinner for his family every week.  He enjoyed playing cards and would do so any chance he could get.

In 2006, Dean was involved in a serious car accident, which left him disabled. Prior to his accident, Dean had worked for several years at the Liebert assembly plant. He had been a very active person; the sort who always had to stay busy. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his family.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, July 28, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, 637 N. SR 61, Sunbury, OH. A funeral service will immediately follow at 1:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
