Jack 1925 – 2014

Mr. Jack Douglas Bryant passed away at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at the age of 89 years. Jack was born on January 11, 1925 at Lethbridge, Alberta. He was the second child born to Herschell and Johnny Bryant. The family moved to Red Deer, where Jack worked with his dad operating a livestock hauling business and later operated H.N. Bryant and Son Esso Station. After taking Airforce training, Jack met and married Elva Howard from Sylvan Lake, Alberta. He was later employed by the Alberta Liquor Control Board.
