On April 21, 2017, James Booker O'Bryant, 79, joined his beloved wife, Claudia Margaret Woolsey O'Bryant, on their 47th wedding anniversary in his heavenly home. Jim's certain belief in God and His faithfulness, supported him and gave him peace.

Jim was born to the late, Lem (Jack) O'Bryant and Katy Fay Helms, a pump station operator and a homemaker respectively, in Corpus Christi, TX on April 20, 1938. He was reared in the Holiness Tabernacle Pentecostal Church from an early age.

Jim attended Miller High School in Corpus Christi. He then served in the United States Marine Corp from July 1959 through October 1960 and was awarded an honorable discharge. Jim was married to his best friend, Claudia, on April 20, in 1970 in Corpus Christi. Jim and Claudia raised their children with discipline, a strong work ethic, and humility. The entire family was baptized at Gardendale Baptist Church, where they attended until their move to Wimberley, Texas.

Jim was a dedicated and tireless worker. As a Jack-of-All-Trades, he was soldier, pipefitter, craftsman, salesman, racecar driver, mobile home service and repairman, and general handyman to anyone that needed him. Jim was kind, and always had time to listen and to answer a question or solve a problem, no matter how small. His loved ones celebrate the fact that he is at peace with Claudia, and their Creator.

Jim is survived by his sons: Jim O'Bryant and daughter-in-law Denise; Richard O'Bryant, and Chuck Dinkins; daughters: Patti Hancock, Jeri Hall, and Lauri Stapp, and their spouses respectively, Scott and Michael; granddaughter, Jennifer Cashman and husband Lucas; granddaughter, Kelly Michelle and husband Jonathan; granddaughter, Samantha and family, and grandson, Stephen; sister-in-law, Linnell Dunaway; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. His wife, parents, brother Wayne Lance, sister Shirley Dinkins, sister Mary Bowman, son-in-law Dr. Rodney Stapp, and many precious friends precede him in death, and then new life.

A memorial service will be held celebrating Jim's life at the Cypress Creek Church in Wimberley, TX, on Saturday, 10am, April 29, 2017. Pastor Robb Campbell will officiate the service. The family gratefully declines flowers, but appreciates "in memoriam" to Cypress Creek Church, Wimberley, TX. Prayers, condolences and memories may be sent to 1615 Redwood Road, 35C, San Marcos, TX 78666.
