May 7, 2021, 68, Seven Springs –
Timothy Eugene Bryson, 68, passed away suddenly on Friday, May 7, 2021, in Sophia, NC. He was born in Fort Benning, Georgia, to the late Benny Lee Bryson and Idell Largen Baker, on November 30, 1952.
Tim was a hard-working man, which was the theme of his life. He was the kind of man who was loyal to his family and who took great pride in caring and providing for them. Tim was a partner in the family business, New Horizon Towers.
Tim was a man from a humble upbringing. He had a great love for his grandfather and when the opportunity arose to get his 1948 red truck Tim took ownership. He restored the old red truck and enjoyed driving it when he could still today. Tim also had a great love for riding his Harley Davidson.
One of Tim’s favorite past times was antiquing. He always enjoyed scoring a good find as was shown by the many treasures he has gathered through the years. You could always find Tim on Saturday mornings at S&D Towing or at Randy’s Shop enjoying the opportunity to catch up with friends.
With family being Tim’s top priority, he had a deep and extensive love for his wife, son, daughter in law and grandson. One of his favorite pastimes was watching Chris and Hunter use one of their many talents. Any time with them was precious, but time spent with his grandson could not be matched. Hunter was truly the apple of his eye, and he looked forward to any chance he had to be with him.
The family will receive friends on Monday, May 10, 2021 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. at The First Pentecostal Holiness Church followed by a service to celebrate Tim’s life at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary with Pastor Bill Rose officiating. Interment will be on Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. in Pineview Cemetery in Seven Springs.
Tim is survived by his wife of almost 49 years, Sherry Bryson; son and daughter-in-law, Chris and Melanie Bryson; grandson, Hunter Bryson; sister, Annie Smith; brothers, Terry Bryson and Lee Bryson; and several nieces and nephews he loved very much. He is also survived by his extended family: mother- in-law, Barbara Brown; sister- in-law, Lisa Brown; sister- in-law, Debbie and husband Curtis Piner; brother-in-law Bruce and wife Debbie Brown. Tim is survived by his good friends: Tony and Linda Hyatt and Zach and Sarah Hyatt.
