Edgar worked as a self-employed contractor for Coleman Bright Ideas For Your Home building garden rooms, porch enclosures, and patio covers for 26 years. During this time, he also was a free-lance artist who loved to sculpt and create bronzes. In his later years, he also turned his craft into woodworking. As a master carpenter, he spent his retirement building furniture, home décor, and selling his crafts in local shows. The Lord gave Edgar an uncanny ability to create something beautiful out of nothing. He was a man that was passionate about the work he did, his values, and his family. Edgar loved deep; from being a faithful loving husband of 53 years to Ruth Bryant, to being the model father to his only son, Cody Laine Bryant. He enjoyed building toys for his Grandchildren, Bleu Bryant and his “brat” Grace Bryant and watching them both play baseball. He will forever be known as someone who exemplified the fruits of the Spirit and loved people with his kindness, patience, and generosity.
