WINSLOW — Ronald ( Ron) Bert Bryant, age 67, of Evansville, Ind., (formerly of Winslow) died Thursday, March 9, 2006, at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville, Ind. from a brief illness.
Ron was retired from Rexam Closures after more than 20 years of employment. Prior employment was with Jasper Rubber Company and Potter and Brumfield. Ron had been a military policeman during his time in the U.S. Army.
Ron was raised in Winslow, Ind., and built a log cabin and happily resided as a naturalist for a few years. It was his dream to again live that lifestyle in his retirement years but his life was cut short. Ron had a passion for hunting and fishing, and had gotten several deer and turkeys throughout his life. He enjoyed whittling his own fishing lures and trying them out at several favorite fishing holes.
He was preceded in death by his mother and step-dad, Winnie and Si Fettinger; and his grandparents who raised him. He is survived by daughter, Lisa Burchett of Olmstead, Ky.; a son, Greg Bryant of Arthur, Ind.; three sisters, Mary Camplin of Huntingburg, and two of his caregivers during his illness, Lynn Clark of Washington, Ind., and Dana Siekman of Oakland City, Ind.; three grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; his fishing buddy, Bob Leistner; and his hunting buddy, Kevin Smith.
Arrangements are being handled by Curtis Funeral Home, 300 Walnut St., Winslow, Ind., where the family will receive friends from 4 to 8 p.m. Pike County Time, Sunday, March 12, 2006. Funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Pike County Time on Monday, March 13, 2006, at Curtis Funeral Home, Rev. Jim Pullum officiating. Interment will be at Oak Hill Cemetery in Winslow, Ind.
