I am so sorry to hear this. I worked with Brett at RCA/Harris in Findlay. He was one of my favorite people. He would stop sometimes and sit on the porch with me. I have some great memories with Brett. The family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Bret was an amazing person, I really enjoyed the short time we had together at Shawnee CC. His hard work at this club will be evident for many years.He will be sadly missed. RIP my good friend and may God be with your family.
