“Matty B” was the life of the party. He was the person everyone wanted to meet and be. His smile and laugh were contagious, his heart was big, and he knew how to have a good time. He loved his mom, mamaw, and sisters unconditionally. He enjoyed fishing and baseball, but his most favorite thing was being Gracen’s daddy. His young mischievous charm changed into being the best man and dad for Gracen. His lifelong motto was to live life to the fullest and he definitely did just that. He will always be loved by so many.

He is survived by a daughter, Gracen Kit Bryant, and her mother Molly Boyles; mother, Shannon Mitchem and stepfather Ronnie of Lincolnton; sisters, MaKenzie Lynn Mitchem, Amanda Gail Bryant, and Ashley Bryant Moncree (Andre Moncree), all of Lincolnton; maternal grandmother, Virginia Burns of Lincolnton; paternal grandmother, Nancy Bryant of Hamlet, NC; step-grandmother, Pat Mitchem; uncles, Robert Gregory Burns of Lincolnton, Ronald Bryant of Hamlet, NC, and Billy Mitchem, Jr. of Lincolnton; aunts, Tammy Byrd of Mooresville, and Denise Bryant of Albemarle; and nieces and nephews, Tylan McLain, Alyssa McLain, Trevor Robinson, Justis Robinson, and Dreley Moncree.
