James "Jimbo" Bryant

James Earl “Jimbo” Bryant, 41, went to join his family and friends in Heaven on November 28, 2017.  A native of Jackson County, he made his home in Virginia. 


He loved cooking, the Pittsburgh Steelers, hanging out with friends & family, and was a skilled carpenter.


He is survived by his only daughter Brianna Noelle of VA; parents James Bryant and Thelma Mathis; 2 sisters Teresa Sill and Tracy Bryant; and one brother, Jeremy Bryant.  Also in his Virginia family, Debra Freeman, Josh Sill, and Stacey Sill as well as many other friends and family members in NC and VA that loved him dearly. 


He will never be forgotten, and the memories of him will keep us smiling until we meet again on the other side.


We all loved Jimbo and will miss his laughter that brought smiles to everyone and every room he walked into. 


We love you Jimbo.
