I knew Kenneth as a co-worker at the Gary Postal Service. He was an excellent Manager/Leader and above all a fine and honest man. Those types are hard to find today. I'm sincerely sorry to hear of his passing and pray that he may rest in peace with God's blessings.

With heart felt emotions,

To Geneva , Kenny II, and the Bryant Family,
Please accept our deepest condolences at this difficult time in your life. Duane and I both had the awesome privilege of working with Mr Bryant at the United States Postal Service.
Mr Bryant was one of the finest Managers in the United States Postal Service. He was exceptionally knowledgeable about Postal Service Operations. He always led with Dignity, Respect and Professionalism. He taught me how to look up information on my own. Proverbs 9:9 Give instructions to a wise man and he will be yet wiser: teach a man and he will increase in learning.(kjv). He really taught me the understanding, give a person a fish they eat for a day, teach them to fish and they eat for a lifetime. I would often ask him questions and he would tell me where I could find the answer, never giving me the answer only telling what manual it was in. I adopted this same method to teach people throughout my Postal Career. The last time I saw him he told me how proud he was of me and my USPS accomplishments. I was able to tell him how his management style had molded me. His words meant the world to me. May God Bless and keep you all as you adjust to a life without Mr Kenneth Bryant Sr.
