Bryant G. Pace

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Bryant Goodson Pace, 99, passed away peacefully Friday, April 18, 2014, after a brief illness.

He was interred in the Pace family plot in Elmwood Cemetery in Henderson, North Carolina, on April 22, 2014.

Born the first of seven children on July 8, 1914, in Kittrell, North Carolina, Bryant, fondly known to many as B.G., had a lifelong passion for horses, physical fitness and art. He continued all of these pursuits well into his 80s. Indeed, he was still working out three times a week and drawing and painting every day until his upper 90s.

A founding member of Tidewater Western Riders, Bryant was considered by many to be the consummate horseman, riding in parades, performing rope tricks and rodeo stunts and inspiring generations of riders. His drawings and paintings were much in demand by friends and family; his subjects included portraits, scenes from his hometown and, of course, horses and riders.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 31 years, Jane G. Pace; stepdaughter Betty J. Credle; son Bryant L. Pace; daughter Candie Dail; grandchildren Eric and Jennifer; great-grandson Caleb; sister Hazel Pace Peck of Henderson; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; many friends; and his beloved cockatiel, Petey.
