ravelly Man Dies of Gunshot

William Francis O’Bryant, 55, of Gravelly died of a gunshot wound early Monday morning.

Sheriff Herman McCormick said that O’Bryant had been in and out of the garage several times while his wife was cooking breakfast. He said he had cleaned and oiled a saw he intended to use and had also oiled a .22 rifle which was found near his body. His wife went out to call him for breakfast and found him lying about halfway up the steps from the garage. A bullet from the single shot .22 had struck him and apparently killed him instantly. Sheriff McCormick said that a coroner’s jury ruled “accidental death at his own hands.”

O’Bryant, a veteran of World War II, is survived by his wife, Aleen, a son, Robert, and daughter, Betty, all of the home. He recently purchased the Clement store.
