Good food was a particular joy in Brett's life. Apple Pie was his favorite dessert with beef and noodles as a preferred main dish. He had a special gift with the beloved dogs that the family owned over the years. Brett was a country music fan and would let everyone know that he did not want to listen to rock and roll. He could often be found relaxing on a porch swing.
