Arvell Bryant Obituary

Mr. Arvell Dean Bryant of Burlington, NC passed away on Tuesday, February 07, 2024, at ARMC surrounded by his loving daughters. He was the son of the late Arvell Bass Bryant and Tennie Colvard Bryant. Dean served his country during the Korean War from 1953-1957 as a member of the United States Navy. Mr. Bryant retired from the textile industry as a supervisor at Copeland Mills. He was a member of Riverside Baptist Church where he served as treasurer and also a deacon.  He was also a member of the Gideon's.  Dean will be remembered as a sweet, kind, and gentle man, making sure that anyone who crossed his path never wanted for anything. He had a love for working with his hands, especially woodworking. More than anything Dean loved his family, making sure to be a good, husband, father, and grandfather. In recent years he had come to develop a special bond with his great-grandson Brayden through their enjoyment of sports.

In addition to his parents, Dean was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 67 years, JoAnn Bryant; and his daughter, Donna Wilkins.

Mr. Bryant is survived by his brother, Ted Bryant (Toby); his daughters, Debbie Dixon (Ben), Dina Bryant, and Janine Bradley; seven grandchildren; fourteen great-grandchildren; a host of nieces and nephews; and a special family friend, Kristy Proffit.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, February 12, 2024, at Riverside Baptist Church, beginning at 12:30pm. A visitation will be held at the church prior to the service, beginning at 11:30am. Burial will follow the service at Alamance Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Gideon's or to the Riverside Baptist Church Building Fund.
