After serving in the U.S. Army during World War II, Bryant settled in Orlando's College Park neighborhood. At the time of his death in 2012, Bryant was the longest-serving postmaster for Orlando, a position that he held from 1951 to 1983. In 1952, William Hamer Beardall, Jr. (1890-1984) appointed Bryant to the local aviation advisory board, which he served on for 22 years.
