I never got to tell him goodbye, Brett was my step dads brother. He taught me and my older brother many life lessons, he took his personal time and gave it to us. We dammed up creeks , went hunting and learned about the American Indians. Brett was a young man when I knew him so I don’t know a lot about his professional life, I had many thanksgiving dinners with him. His sense of humor and Addis’s tennis shoes were a trade mark for him, he was tuff and compassionate, he never judged us, and always had time, I’ll never forget the day someone called me and ask me to deliver the message to his brother, I was heart broken, I’ll never forget Brett mckee. Rip uncle Brett,!
