Bryant, William (18 May 1871 - 8 Apr. 1932)

Wm. Bryant, whose death was recorded last week, was the only son of the late June I. and James Henry Bryant. He was born on May 18th, 1871, at Weston, Vermont, and, in the spring of 1879, came with his parents and sister to Colby. Mr. Bryant was a mill wright and he followed the same work here and at other places. About nineteen years ago he went out west and located in Hoquiam, Wash., where he married and made his home. In the afternoon of Friday, April 8th, a beautiful day in Hoquiam, he was in his yard working about, as one does at this time of the year, when he was stricken suddenly with apoplexy. A neighbor found him and called his sister, Cora, but when she reached him, he had already passed away.

Will was an old timer here and his friends still here note with regret the passing of a staunch friend and congenial fellow worker. Sincere sympathy is extended to the bereaved wife, daughter, Vivian, and sister, Cora.

Last rites were held Monday afternoon at the chapel of the Pinnick mortuary, Rev. Elmer B. Christie, rector of Trinity Episcopal church, officiating and internment was made in Fern Hill cemetery. The ceremony at the cemetery was conducted by the Knights of Pythias.

Mr. Bryant was a member of the Modern Woodsmen of America, the Knights of Pythias, the D.O.K.K., and the Equitable Fraternal Union.
