Sean “Vince” Bryant


Sean Vincent Bryant was born on May 3, 1976, in Toledo, Ohio and was called home to the Lord unexpectedly. Sean Vincent was born to the late Gordon Vincent Bryant and Dorothy Jean Pryor Bryant. Vincent was the youngest of five children: Anthony, Caprice, Evette, all of Toledo, and Bryant of Seattle. Vincent attended Woodward High School in Toledo, Ohio where he obtained his general education degree. Vincent was very athletic and played many sports. During his younger childhood years Vincent would travel every chance he could back and forth from Toledo to Columbus to stay with his Grandparents the late Rusty (Night Train) Bryant and Ruby Bryant. During the span of his childhood upbringing, Vincent lived with the late Elmer T. Cook and his wife, Ellaweze Cook. They were like a loving father and mother to him. The Cook’s played a major part in life, during his younger years and Vincent had a special love for them, that he has always treasured from then until his passing.

During his younger adult years, he worked in his hometown for Par 2 Golf Courses under the guidance of his Mentor/Godfather Terry Grady. Vincent later moved to Columbus, Ohio and resided with his late aunt/mother Kimberly Bryant. Kimberly Bryant was thought of as a mother to Vincent and she treated him as a son. While in Columbus Vincent held a position for many years as a security officer for many establishments. Vincent was recently employed by Columbus Airport as a shuttle bus driver. He enjoyed this job, because he got to share funny experiences with the people that he was coming in contact with daily! Vincent was a determined young man when he put his mind to it. When he wanted something… he went after it! In the Spring of 2011, Vincent was introduced to Luann Forbes. He decided early on, he wanted this young lady, so the chase was on (smile)! Vincent put in the work to make a good impression and go after something he wanted. Luann finally gave in and said yes, I will go on a date with you and the rest is history. Vincent wanted the commitment to start a new life and a new life together. In June 2014, Vincent and Luann, made a promise before God to marry and become one, as husband and wife.

Vincent worked hard in every job he held in his life and could always be counted on to not only be a dedicated, loyal employee but also a dedicated, loyal friend to anyone that had the pleasure of knowing him in that capacity. Vincent was a protector, and giver to Everyone in his life. If he was your friend, he was a true friend, through thick and thin, good, bad, and ugly. You could count on Vincent!

Vincent was preceded in death by his parents, Gordon Vincent and Dorothy Pryor Bryant; paternal grandparents, Rusty “Night Train” and Ruby Bryant; maternal grandparents, Lonnie and Pearlie Pryor; daughter, Leilani Bryant; aunt/mother, Kimberly Bryant; aunt, Naomi Dean; niece, Jaikira Pryor; and brother, Douglas Williams.
