I met Brett virtually a few years ago as we worked together, but quickly grew to like and respect Brett. He had a refreshing honestly that immediately instilled a trust in our friendship. We were often working overnight on different projects, but would end up helping each other or just being an ear to bounce things off of. He was an easy person to talk to and always wanted to help. Brett taught me some things too. For instance, one day he told me he was meeting his GBU. I had to ask him what a GBU was. He said I probably had at least one, it's a Genetic Backup. Turns out his daughter was coming over that day. I still laugh when I think about that. Brett will be missed by the many people that he impacted. God Bless you brother and your family as they work through this loss.

Stuart Family,
I and several others only got to know Brett for a short time, but he became family to us all. Funny, kind, compassionate, intelligent....he became our brother. This world is a better place for having him in it and will leave such a void behind in his absence. He was a confidant and supportive shoulder.
Bless you all, and may God's blessings comfort you in his passing.

I still can't believe you're gone. You promised to save me a seat. Love you forever and always, brother ❤️
