In answer to an email from former CT member Mike C, Tom Bryant's daughter replied:
Hi Mike -
My name is Amanda Bryant. I am Tom's daughter. I am not sure how you knew my dad, but he passed away earlier this month. He had lung cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes, his brain, and other parts of his body. The first indication we had that something was wrong was in July and he didn't tell very many people. He then went into the hospital at the end of September with colon issues. Dad was very unhappy in the hospital and chose to go home. He passed much sooner than we expected, we thought we may have a few months up to a year. The cancer was worse than we realized. He reported no pain on the day he passed. He passed away surrounded by family. I was with him along with his mother, little sister, and nephew. I'm sorry for not reaching out sooner. I am still going through everything. He passed away on October 3. Per his request, he had a graveside service with immediate family.
