Craig Stuart Bryant of Newport News, made heaven his home on March 12, 2017.
Craig was a 1986 graduate of Gloucester High School and graduated from Christopher Newport College in 1990. It was there that he met his wife, Vonda Kay Lynch—with a little help from some friends.
After marrying in 1991, Craig and Vonda moved to various states as he pursued his career with Ferguson Enterprises. Along the way two sons, Jack and Marc, joined the family. Craig was especially proud of his boys and loved being involved in their activities.
Craig’s highest priorities were God, his family and his work. Throughout his career with Ferguson, Craig’s greatest goal and accomplishment was to mentor others and challenge to them to be the best person that they could be—not just for the company, but for themselves and their families.
Craig was a member of Bethel Temple Church and he loved serving his brothers and sisters. Craig was a giving man and this didn’t stop at his passing. He chose to be an organ donor so that others might live.
Cherishing his memory are his wife, Vonda; sons, Jack and Marc; his parents, Gordon and Terri Townsend; his sister, Laurel Byrd (Brian); his parents-in-law, Samuel and Esther Lynch, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, co-workers, brothers and sisters in Christ.
Arrangements are being made by W.J. Smith Funeral Home, Newport News.
