William Henry Bryant died at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on April 6, 1914, in his fifty-first year. His death can not be regarded but as a calamity to the State and a distinct loss to the legal profession, which he constantly adorned and which found in him one of its most brilliant members. His love and devotion at home, his professional courtesy and ability, his uniformly genial, pleasant and accommodating manner, and his devotion to and energetic work for the community in which he lived. and whose welfare he ever sought, will always be missed.
