BRYANT LAMONT ALSTON was born on July 4, 1978, in Littleton, North Carolina, to Joyce “Linda” Burgess and the late Robert Alston. He quietly answered God’s summon to eternal rest and peace on Sunday, October 14, 2018, at Virginia Beach General Hospital in Virginia Beach, Virginia, surrounded by his loving, devoted family.
During his early life, he accepted Christ into his life and joined the Lebanon AME Church in Littleton, North Carolina, and later rededicated himself to the Lord at the Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Littleton, North Carolina. His formal education was received in the Halifax County Public School System.
Bryant was united in matrimony to the former Brittney Nikelia Phipps. They shared three years of married life together after a four year close relationship.
Bryant owned and operated Mobil Detailing until ill health prevailed, and he possessed a passion for his chosen career. His innovative mission and inspiring desire to serve others with dignity and pride had a positive impact on the lives of those with whom he came into contact.
Bryant enjoyed traveling with his family, grilling, sharing in family activities, performing with his brother-in-law, “Frost”, and most of all, supporting his favorite football team, THE DALLAS COWBOYS!
Those remaining to forever treasure the precious memories of his life and love are his wife, Brittney; his three sons, Alex, Bryshon, and Isiah; his daughter, Alexis; his goddaughter, Athena; his mother, Linda Burgess of Roanoke Rapids, NC; his mother-in-law, Demetris A.
