James Staniel Branyon, 76, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 28,2022 at his home in the care of his wife Carroll and granddaughter Eliza, and the wonderful caregivers of Hope Hospice.  He was born on October 23, 1945 to the late Wade and Gladys Branyon.  After graduating from The College of William and Mary with a degree in Business Administration, Mr. Branyon was commissioned into the army as a Second Lieutenant.
