Roy Brant Jr.

January 22, 2022


“Psalm 30:5”, states that in the life of every believer, weeping would endure for a night and although some nights may last for only a few hours, while others may seem to span a lifetime, in the same verse, a promise is given for every believer who leans upon the unfailing arms of the Almighty God. Joy is sure to come in the morning. On January 8, 1944, Mr. Roy Brant, Jr. was born in Hampton County, South Carolina to the late Mr. Roy Brant, Sr. and the late, Mrs. Nina Bell Johnson Brant. Roy was known to many as “Sunny”, loved life and was loved by all that knew him.  He received his education from North District Training School. For over 15 years, Roy was a dedicated and loyal employee of Hampton  Regional Medical Center (formerly, the Hampton General Hospital),Varnville, South Carolina. He furthered his career and worked with the Town of Varnville Public Works Department for five years. He retired after 30 plus years, working with the Varnville Area Housing Corporation.
