Brett graduated from Northwest High School in Jackson, Michigan class of 1987 and loved his participation in Jack Town Packers trip out west the summer of 1987.

He attended Michigan Tech in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula majoring in Forestry. This love of nature stayed with Brett his entire life, as he loved fishing, hunting and enjoying the great outdoors.

Brett spent much of his career in the construction field and his last employer was Wilson Excavating. During his time there he spoke of his love to teach others what he knew while still learning from them every day.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Because Brett accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour, we know he is now experiencing what it is to be face to face with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
