We are so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was a good friend during his real estate days. We worked on many committees together. He always had great ideas and contributed a lot to the real estate industry. He made a difference in many lives. It was an honor to read about his military service and his valor. We had no idea he was so decorated because he was such a humble man. May God bless the family. Joy and David Bailey

Beth, our deepest sympathy to you and your family! We saw the notice of Tom’s passing on FB and thought, could that possibly be the sweet and kind Tom Bryan we used to see at church each Sunday. Checked out the obituary and saw his smiling face. It’s been many years since we have seen the two of you, but when you meet someone as friendly as Tom, you just never forget them! I remember him giving my young son (who is now 46) some medals and I was amazed at his generosity and thoughtfulness! We pray that the memories you shared can somehow see you through this very difficult time. May he Rest In Peace and know just how many lives his kindness has touched!

Dear Beth and Bryan Family It was an honor to know Tom. As a Friend, Fellow Parishioner, and Brother Knight, we were involved in several activities together. His Personality was always Bright and willing to be helpful. He has been missed for the past couple of years and will continue to be missed. May his Soul Rest in Peace. God Bless.

My sister Robin and I grew up in the Del Norte neighborhood and knew this good man as Colonel Bryan. Two of his sons, Pat and David, were friends of ours and Col. and Mrs. Bryan were always friendly, good people with great smiles. When I went to Furman in the mid 1970’s, Col. Bryan was in charge of the military department and I took a few courses. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days and I hope you each will feel God’s grace and peace as you move forward.

I had the pleasure of knowing Tom many years ago when I was a member of the Rotary Club of Pleasantburg. Thinking back I would describe Tom as kind, caring, and humble, filled with life, love and a lot of corny jokes. But the one word that best describes Tom for me is simply a gentleman. He was a true original.
Sara Mansbach left a message on May 31, 2022:
I met Tom at the Pleasantburg Rotary where he was among the most cordial and welcoming of its members, He often sought out a seat next to me, and never hesitated to ask about the progress that we were making with developing Haiti libraries and getting books to rural children there. He was genial and joyful and very modest. Only rarely would he mention his military experiences and then just for a moment or two. He resigned a few years ago, and I have truly missed his presence. He was a true Rotarian.
