Vernon Holiday Spirit Christmas Meal founder passes away

VERNON, TX (KAUZ) - A man who is known for helping others during the holiday season has passed away.

Pat Bryant and his wife Glenna Bryant founded the Vernon "Holiday Spirit Christmas Meal."

The operation provided meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas for 30 years.

The Bryant's told Newschannel 6 back in November they enjoy serving the community.

However, this year they decided to pass the torch to Sharon and Billy Goins, so they could spend time with their family in Alabama.

Many took to Facebook today to honor Pat Bryant and thank him for all the work he put in to this annual event.
