Delbert Ray Bryant, 65, of Prestonsburg entered eternal life on May 27, 2020. Born in 1954, Delbert was raised in Spewing Camp, KY and Wellington, OH. He spoke fondly of this time growing up on a farm, and the memories later served as fairytales for his young children.

Delbert was a kind and loving man, the most patient person many were blessed to ever encounter. Delbert was always the first to rise to help someone else. He spent much of his younger days raising his two sisters and then two children, whom he said were his greatest accomplishments. He would often check on his loved ones, and his calming presence and comforting words were enough to dry any tears. He enjoyed tinkering, and often fixed up old cars and broken appliances.

For leisure, Delbert loved many classic westerns starring John Wayne. Delbert was open to new possibilities, so he expanded his viewpoint by watching Ancient Aliens and theorizing about the existence of Big Foot. He also relished inventing his own recipes and insisted on the importance of natural ingredients.

Delbert was preceded in death by his parents John Henry and Bessie (Dye) Bryant, of Kentucky, a sister Pamela Mitchell, and a brother Lanny Bryant, both of Ohio.

His spirit is carried on by two children Thomas (Jennifer Hall) Bryant, of Lexington, and Emily Bryant, of Prestonsburg. Delbert has two sisters Penny (Steven) Hess and Tammy (Anthony) Simonds-Lapham, of Hillsdale, Michigan; two brothers Pelter (Robin) Bryant of Wellington, Ohio, and Hillas (Roberta) Bryant of New London, Ohio. Delbert is warmly remembered by his dear friends Steven and Leona Slone and Katie Pinson of Prestonsburg. Delbert also leaves behind numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews, whom he loved very much.

Delbert had pure, unwavering faith that got him through many hard parts of life, including his terminal disease. He spoke intently of helping other people even in the afterlife. It is our belief that he is spending eternity building log cabins in heaven and assisting wayward souls during his earthly visits. When asked how he was, Delbert always remained optimistic and said he was “doing good, doing good, doing pretty good.” Because Delbert is now watching over us, we will also be “doing good” too. We will miss him deeply.

A private celebration of Delbert’s life will be held on July 11 at 2pm at Praise Assembly of God in Prestonsburg, KY.

So sorry to hear of your loss of Delbert. I am his father's cousin Judy, his Aunt Pearl's daughter. I was very fond of John Henry and Bessie. Delbert's obituary was really lovely. Bless you.
