John Robert “Bob” Bryant
April 23, 1947 ‒ December 15, 2020
John Robert Bryant, age 73, peacefully passed away Tuesday, December 15, 2020, at his Mansfield home surrounded by his family.
Bob was born April 23, 1947, in Fredericktown, Ohio, the son of Max & Leona Bryant. He graduated from Fredericktown High School where he played football and met cheerleader Eva Lynne Diehl. The pair married, April 25, 1969, at First Baptist Church in Fredericktown.
Bob had a dairy farm in Fredericktown, Ohio until 1992 when he and Lynne moved to the Mansfield area. He spent the rest of his days as a dairy nutritionist and started Performance Feed & Seeds with his son, Jason. He always had a love and passion for dairy cattle and for horses and spent the last 10 years operating his 10 acre horse farm. Bob was a people-person who could start a conversation with anyone. He had an easygoing nature and was well-liked by all who met him. He will be remembered for his kind heart and big smile.
He and Lynne spent years traveling and was blessed to see some beautiful parts of America on their road trips. Above all, Bob was a proud grandfather and enjoyed being “PawPaw” to three boys and three girls. He loved to watch the girls’ show their fair animals and the boys compete in sports.
He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Jamie & Elisa Bryant of Mansfield and Jason & Haley Bryant of Ashland; his grandchildren whom he loved very much: Luke, Jacob, Joshua, Brylyn, Addilyn, and Hayden Bryant.
In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 51 years, Lynne Bryant.
Although no public service will be held in Bob’s memory, his family hopes you will remember him in your own special way. A celebration of life service will be planned to honor Bob & Lynne in 2021. Contributions in Bob’s memory may be sent to Fredericktown FFA, 111 Stadium Dr, Fredericktown, OH 43019.
