Brett Alan Figg
October 11, 1960 – May 2, 2021
Brett Allan Figg, beloved husband, father, grandfather and long-time resident of Longmont, CO, went to be with his Lord and Savior Sunday, May 2, 2021. He passed away peacefully at Longs Peak Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Howe Mortuary was in charge of arrangements. Per Brett’s wishes his body was cremated and a celebration of his life was held at his son’s house Thursday, May 6th.
Another service is pending.
Brett was born October 11, 1960 to Teddy Ray and Elaine Mae (Huffman) Figg in Santa Clara, CA where he grew up and attended school through the 10 th grade. Brett then moved with his sister Paula to Boulder, CO and graduated from Fairview High School in 1978. As a young man Brett “Toad” enjoyed traveling between CA and CO by motorcycle, train, and car. Later he enjoyed shorter trips to the mountains, a good fishing hole, and the wide-open plains. Boating on rivers and lakes, from Stockton, CA to Carter Lake, was always good family time. Brett’s favorite pastime, watching western shows, was legendary. Asked if he hadn’t just watched a certain episode Brett would reply “Yes. It’s a really good one.” We don’t think he considered any western bad. His infectious laugh, big hugs, and dumb jokes will be sorely missed.
In 1988 Brett married Malinda Howe in Las Vega, NV. To this union two children were born – Samantha Jean and Clayton Ray. They lived a few years in CA before returning to Longmont where the marriage ended in 2008.
Brett was a plumber by trade and by heart. He almost had to be after learning the trade from his dad at a young age and business skills from his mom when he was a little older and wanted to start his own company. Samton Plumbing, Inc. was his pride and joy for more than 25 years with large and small projects up and down the front range and into NE. He could talk for hours about plumbing a new house with eight fancy bathrooms, a 300 unit apartment complex, or energy efficient thermal and boiler systems.
Family was so important to Brett. From gymnastics with Samantha to baseball and math with Clayton to his granddaughter Ariel’s education awards and school activities, Brett was so proud of their accomplishments. The entire family loved and always had plenty of pets; Mitzi the dachshund and Fred the beagle were definitely favorites. He cherished the time spent with Ariel searching for the perfect fish to add to their aquarium. Those two also spent many hours competing at cards and board games.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be sent in care of Paula Lemke, 6 S 14 th St, Clear Lake, IA 50428. A 529 college fund will be established for Ariel.
Brett is survived by his long-time love, Tracey Rosales, children Samantha and Clayton, granddaughter Ariel “Smiley,” and special Mother-in-Law Dorothy Rasmussen all of Longmont, brother Kevin (Francene) Figg in NC, sister Paula Lemke in IA, aunts Hazel White, Helen Jorgensen, and Vikii Fleming, special cousin Tim Fleming, nieces Krystina, Jennifer, Rebecca, Cari, Kelley, Melissa, and Loryl, nephews Calvin and Ben, cousins Butch, Todd, Lori, Karen, Linda, Jodi, Diana, and Stephanie, and “adopted sons” Adam Rink and Grahm Davis, brothers-in-law Cory Howe and family and Lonnie (Sherilyn) Trainor, and many friends.
Welcoming Brett into heaven are his parents, grandparents Hilton and Susan Huffman and Ray and Augusta Figg, sisters Debra “Kelley” Ridenour and Brenda Jennings, cousins Brad Beddow and Gayle Jorgensen, two Aunts, and several uncles.
May Brett rest in peace for eternity. He will be missed.

We are deeply sorry to learn of Brett's passing. He was a master craftsman -- unmatched in our experience, and took great pride in his work. Though we knew Brett for a only short time, he made a deep impression with his work ethic, his commitment to church and community, and love for his family. We found Brett to be honest and humble, never boastful although he knew the depth of his skill. We called him the salt of the earth. There was nothing false about Brett. We're grateful for the opportunity to work with Brett and send prayers for peace and healing to his family. Sincerely, Melanie and Michael Simms
