Brett proudly raised three wonderful children: Bartt (Jessica), Loveland, CO; Courtney (Melissa), Denver, CO; Travis, Denver, CO, with his first wife Donna. Brett married his high school sweetheart, Sue Leary, in 1992. They both indulged Brett’s adventurous spirit by raising horses and cattle on their ranch in Mead, CO. Brett roped and showed horses, was a creative photographer, avid fisherman, frustrated golfer, voracious reader, uncontested debater, was a chef in his own right and a barbecue master. Sue and Brett were full-time RVer’s for 15 years, making their mark while adding a slew of friends across the U.S. He was a proud member of the (HOG)Harley-Davidson Owners Club, a card carrying member of the NRA, a staunch conservative political junkie and threw legendary parties. Brett was a lover of fine wines and food, art, old classic movies and the wide-open spaces. Brett also was known for his quick wit. He definitely made his mark in this world.
He is survived by his precious and devoted wife, Sue; his sister Linda (Ken) Nelson; his children; grandchildren, Jace and Noah; his adoring sisters-in-law; many loving nieces and nephews; and doting “therapy” dogs Nacho and Chili.
A true man’s man, Brett will be waiting with God in Heaven for us all.
