Gerald Antonio Bryant Jr. was born in Tacoma, WA to Juanita Olivas and Gerald Bryant Sr. on April 22, 1984. As a child, Gerald loved to hangout with his grandfather the late Fred D Appleton Jr. They would spend all day working on cars or mowing grass that’s how Gerald learned to hustle and make money. He had four sisters and he was the only boy. After a shy childhood, Gerald developed a larger than life personality. He was the star! He was great at basketball (fastest on the court), football, wrestling and many other sports. After graduating from Wilson Highschool Gerald began his journey as a man having his first child Brooklyn. Her birth was the happiest day of his life. He later had six other children whom he loved dearly. No matter what he was doing nothing could stop daddy time. Gerald loved to be the life of the party. His heart was special. He felt like he could help everyone even if he had nothing to give. Gerald spent time working on his friends cars and buying food for their children. He gave and showed loved even when love wasn’t given to him.
Remember Gerald was a great man, friend, father, brother, uncle and hero to his children. We say good bye to you our sweet baby brother until we meet again at the gates. We love you Buggy and miss you. The Lord called you home, Jesus now takes care of him.
