William Michael Bryant, known to all of those who loved him as Michael, left us on July 7, 2021, unexpectedly. Michael was a gentle soul with a kind heart. One of his favorite things was to walk around barefoot and be in nature. He never met an animal he didn’t like, or a baby he couldn’t calm down. He loved his family, especially his daughters, Destiney and Tatianna. He loved his friends unconditionally. He was a master woodworker who built his hobby into a side business. He was a voracious reader who loved paper books and never could adjust to e-readers. He discovered his love of photography in the past few years and was never without his camera just in case he could get the perfect shot. Michael liked to travel and had many adventures around the US with his friends. They were planning a trip back to his home state of Pennsylvania in the fall of this year. Michael will be so dearly missed by all who knew and loved him but leaves behind many wonderful memories.
Services for Michael will be held at 3:00 p.m., Friday, July 16, 2021 at Shipman's Funeral Home Chapel. To leave his family a message, please visit his Tribute Wall. Arrangements are under the direction of Shipman’s Funeral & Cremation Service.
Michael is survived by his mother; Diane Bryant of Pryor; daughters, Tatianna Bryant of Indiana and Destiney Moore and husband Shon Robison of Tulsa; brother, JK Bryant of Pryor; sister, Kristi Foster and husband Terry of Pryor; 2 nieces, 1 nephew, 3 great nephews; and best friend, Connie Sharp of Pryor. He is preceded in death by his father, Jack Bryant; sister, Carrie Bryant; and great niece Kambree Foster.
