Henry Thomas Brantley, 2, of Thomson, Georgia, went to meet the Lord on June 11, 2021.

Henry was born in Augusta, Georgia on March 28, 2019, and lived and grew up in Thomson, Georgia.  He is the son of Johnny Wayne Brantley, Jr. and Mandy Smallwood Brantley.  He was a very loving child that loved cuddles, spending time with his family and watching Coco Melon.  Through LifeLink of Georgia, the Brantley family was able to continue Henry’s legacy through the donation of his pulmonary and aortic heart valves.  As Henry entered the Gates of Heaven, we can hear him say, “Oh, Wow!”

Henry was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Jack Smallwood; his maternal great grandparents; and his paternal great grandfather.  His survivors include his parents, Johnny Wayne Brantley, Jr. and Mandy Smallwood Brantley; his brothers, Johnny Wayne Brantley, III (Tripp) and Jackson Brantley; his maternal grandparents, Amanda Smallwood of Thomson; his paternal grandparents, Johnny and Angela Brantley of Thomson; his paternal great grandmother, Annette Irby; his aunts and uncles, Thomas and Marie Smallwood (Oren Smallwood); Camille Smallwood (Cameron Davis-finance); Gary and Tracie Woody (Shelby and Zac Woody); Tammy Walden (Autumn, Summer, Austin & Cameron Walden); William and Melanie Sherrer (Alyssa, Andrea, and Zach Sherrer); Wesley and Whitney Jones (Sadie and Sawyer Jones); Sarah Shiver (Cason, Cody and Chaz Shiver); many other great aunts, great uncles, cousins; and close family friends, Tony Stacey, Lily and Sam Amerson.
