Ryan Brant will always be in my thoughts. I worked with him for 5 years when Take-Two was just taking off the ground. He was intelligent, genuine, caring and had a unique way of telling it like it is! I have so many memories working with him. He had a gift of leaving lasting impressions on those he encountered. My wife and I would think about him and exchange our stories as we met each other during that time while working together. He was an innovator in the gaming industry and didn’t get the appropriate recognition he deserved. My prayers to his family.
RIP Ryan, you’ll be missed

“I can’t express how much Ryan meant to me over the years. I started out as a receptionist for Take 2 in 1997 then later became his personal assistant for a short while, but most of all we became great friends. He always brought so much light into the lives of those around him . I miss him so much and I will cherish our memories forever. My sincere condolences to the Brant family.. R.I.P. RB

Forever in my heart you will stay!
