Dr. Brant Gregory Kersey, age 51, of Knoxville, Tennessee, took his own life on Thursday, July 25, 2019 after struggling with a traumatic brain injury for over a year. Despite his struggles, he felt genuinely blessed to have spent time with his family and friends during the year after his injury. Brant was a beloved family physician who loved family dinners, movie nights, science fiction, and Major League Baseball. After graduating from Brookstone High School in Columbus, Georgia, Brant attended Duke University on an ROTC scholarship, where he made many lasting friendships through Sigma Nu fraternity. He became a Satellite Operations officer with the Air Force after college, then attended Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, where he met his wife, Leanne. He is preceded in death by his mother, Juliet Regina Towson, as well as his grandparents, Millie and Bob Dolan and Robert and Alice Towson. Brant is survived by his wife, Leanne McGinnis Kersey; his children, Will, Emily, and Parker Kersey; his father and step-mother, Joe and Cherry Kersey; and his sister and brother-in-law, Meredith and Kevin Horn; and their children, Sophie and Cooper. Family will receive friends Saturday, August 17, 2019 in the chapel of Berry Funeral Home, 3704 Chapman Hwy, Knoxville, Tennessee from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm with Celebration of Life to follow at 4:00 pm.

AÑADIR UN RECUERDO

Brant and I were friends in high school and I spent many a night at his house watching movies (they were the only family I knew that had a VideoDisc player!) and playing video games. We were such nerds. It was awesome. We both had VW Sciroccos and for a few summers we were the Scirocco Brothers. And we both served in the Air Force, so we were brothers in arms.

Farewell, brother.

Brant: a loyal, wonderfully gifted soul, who, to top if off, was undeniably handsome.

Brant shared so much with his family and his universe before departing. I know The Kerseys will all carry so much of him with them always. No doubt he is watching over you all now and eternally.

I weep for your loss and send love and strength.

Until you meet again, I know he is with you.

Brant you were so much more than my doctor for the past 11 years.
You solved my mysterious illness that countless doctors before you, neither had the intellect, time or passion to resolve.
Time with your patients was critical to you. You only endeavored to achieve a positive impact on their lives and WOW did you succeed.
We became personal friends beyond the doctor patient relationship.
I am forever indebted to you and will mourn your passing.
To Leanne and kids please accept my deepest sympathies.

My heart nearly leaped out of my chest this morning reading about Dr. Kersey. I saw him just before the accident and we spoke about his new car. I too sustained a brain injury in '97 from a traumatic car accident and though it's been 20+ years, we spoke about it. We often spoke of faith and my love for God, my family, and His love for his wife and children. I'm so deeply sorry to his beloved family for the loss. I remember being in the same place of despair... All I could say was...Jesus...over and over and over again. He will love and guide through this. Cling to Him. It is such a difficult battle. Dr. Kersey will be forever missed and loved. My deepest condolences and prayers reach out for his family in such admiration

Dear Kersey Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of a wonderful husband, father, brother, son, and friend to many. I was blessed to attend high school with Brant and have happy memories of his wit, brilliant mind, enthusiasm, and showing us the answer to the meaning of life (42). Please know that his very old friends have only the deepest respect and admiration for him - he was an amazing man and we will grieve his loss.
Sincerely,
Tom Rickard
