John Nathanael “Nat” Bryan, Sr., who was only 48 years of age, died on August 25, 2008. His loving survivors include his wife Ashley Butler Bryan; his children, Jack Bryan and Kate Bryan; his parents, Circuit Judge John Newton Bryan, retired, and Susan Baarcke Bryan; and his sister, Sandra Bryan Vitalis. Nat’s death came as a shock to all of us who knew him. It was a reminder of how fragile our existence on earth really is.
Nat graduated from W.A. Berry High School in 1978, lettered in three sports, and was a member of the Berry 1977 State Championship football team. Nat was also a proud graduate of Auburn University. One of his greatest passions was following Auburn’s football program. Nat was devoted to his family. He adored Ashley, his wife of 17 years. Just as Nat learned to hunt and fish from his father, Nat passed on his love of the outdoors to his 14-year-old son, Jack. Nat took great delight in his 12-year-old daughter Kate’s spunky nature.
Nat graduated from the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 1985, and practiced law for 23 years. He was a partner at the law firm of Marsh, Richard, & Bryan, P.C. His partners and colleagues at the law firm will miss him dearly. Nat was fiercely devoted to his clients and to being an advocate for people hurt on the job or on our state’s highways. He will be sorely missed by his many friends and fellow lawyers. Our prayers have been with Nat’s family and with members of his law firm.
