Bob Bryant, a highly-regarded associate pastor at Water of Life Community Church in Fontana, died after being infected with COVID-19, the church said on Facebook.

Bryant, his wife Lori, and one of his sons tested positive for the coronavirus on Nov. 24.

"I had no symptoms and Bob had most of the symptoms," Lori said on Facebook.

Bob was infected with pneumonia, suffered a silent heart attack and had to be put on a ventilator, she said.

Water of Life Pastor Dan Carroll later announced that Bryant had passed away on Nov. 30.

"Today Pastor Bob is where he has always loved to be, in the presence of Jesus. He loved God and he loved people with great passion. We celebrate his life and how he lived and influenced us to love like Jesus loved!" Carroll said.
Carroll urged the church members to continue to pray for Lori and their children.
A memorial service to celebrate Bryant's life will be held on Monday, Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. at the church.  The service will also be streamed live online.
