Dub was born July 7, 1937 in Fort Worth. He raised a family and resurrected the original Bransom Hardwood Floors while serving full time as a Fort Worth police officer, where he retired from in 1983. He then ran for Tarrant County Sherriff, only losing by a small margin. After retirement he was hired as the City of River Oaks Police Chief and then received a Presidential appointment as the United States Marshal of North Texas. After 7 years as US Marshal, he then ran and won 3 terms as Constable of Tarrant County Precinct 4. His health declined forcing him to retire in December of 2016. Dub was a friend to all, loved old cars, and served the Tarrant County area with honor and dignity. His pride and joy was his family.
Dub was preceded in death by his parents, an infant son, his only brother Charles, and the mother of his children; Shirley Bransom-Cosper. Many other loved ones greeted him in heaven as well.
2 Timothy 4: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

Survivors: Mr. Bransom is survived by his wife of 20 years Sherry Clanton Bransom; sons, DW “Sonny” Bransom III, and his wife, Elisa, and Charlie Bransom, and his wife, Lisa; his daughter, Amy Bransom Reese, and her husband Steve; three step-daughters, Charity DeVille, Charlotte Cleveland, and Brittany DeVille; five sisters; ten grandchildren; four great- grandchildren, and four step-grandchildren.
