Boyd Bryant Battles, 77, of Phenix City, AL died peacefully while at Columbus Hospice House, Columbus, GA on Thursday, February 1, 2024, surrounded by family. 

Funeral Services will be held at Noon on Wednesday, February 07, 2024, in the Chapel of Vance Brooks Funeral Home, Phenix City, AL with Reverend Ricky Ward and Reverend David Dollar officiating. Interment with U. S. Navy honors will follow in Ft. Mitchell National Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Tuesday evening at the funeral home. 

Mr. Battles was born April 11, 1946, in Houston County, AL son of the late John Henry Battles and Lula Branton Battles. He and his late wife, Delores, were founding members of Grace Freewill Baptist Church, Phenix City, AL where they were active until they were called home to Heaven. Mr. Battles was a U. S. Navy veteran proudly serving our country. Mr. Battles had worked for the Phenix City Police and Russell County Sheriff’s office for several years; however, he changed careers and became a contractor. As the owner of B & H Construction and later Classic Home Improvements he built numerous houses and worked on various other projects in and around this area for years. 

Mr. Battles loved his family and the time spent with them. They often enjoyed watching Braves Baseball and Alabama Football. He also found pleasure in hunting and fishing as often as his schedule would allow. We will remember him as a man of great faith and a straightforward attitude. One thing was certain though, his grandchildren were his world. Though he is no longer a part of our daily life, we will never forget the legacy he has left for us. 

Mr. Battles was preceded in death by his parents, John and Lula Battles; his wife of 57 years, Gladys Delores Dempsey Battles; two brothers, Hubert Battles and Edward Battles; one sister, Leila Culpepper.

Survivors include his two daughters, Angie Stone (Jeff) and Angel Leigh Battles (Jeremy) all of Phenix City, AL; two sisters, Marilyn Lewis (William) and Sara Tucker (Jack) all of Columbus, GA; sister-in-law, Dot Battles, Columbus, GA; seven grandchildren, Kaitlyn “KK”, Taylor, Bailey, Savannah, Emma, Abigail and Owen; two great-grandchildren, Kameron and Kierra; several nieces, nephews and friends.
