Brett was born in August after my first son was born in July... he was all boy and full of life, enjoyed bike riding, fishing, exploring, and adventures of all kinds. Our family and his spent many happy camping trips together. Both my sons enjoyed being his friend... my husband and myself loved having him around.
The world is a sadder place without Brett in it! He was the nicest guy! He came from the nicest family and has the nicest wife, mom& sister. Going to really miss getting to see him once in awhile.

Oh gosh, we are all going to miss Brett so much!
None of us can believe he is gone; he was a larger than life man who worked hard, helped others, cared deeply about family and friends, and who enjoyed life. He was a man of integrity, and I was proud to consider him a friend as well as a co-worker.
We feel for your loss, Jennifer and family, and we continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers!
