Bryant Funeral Home Founder- Arthur Bryant, Sr.
Since he was a young boy growing up on a farm in East Setauket, Arthur W. Bryant wanted to serve his neighbors and community as a funeral director. None of Art's sons have ever been totally clear as to what or who inspired him to his calling in the funeral profession. However, his dream was delayed by World War II and his service to the country in Europe as a Sergeant in the Army Air Corp. At the end of the war, he returned to his community and married Martha V. Curtis of Port Jefferson. For the next 25 years, Art was side-tracked from his boyhood dream, but went onto own and operate three successful businesses, all based right in our town.
