Brett Richard J. Como, 33, of Canton, Georgia, passed away on October 12, 2021 surrounded by the love of his family.

Brett was born in Woodstock, Georgia on May 26, 1988 to parents, Lori Nienaber Como and Timothy J. Como.

A lover of basketball, Brett played throughout high school at Milton High. After graduation in 2006, Brett went on to attend and graduate from Athens Technical College and Chattahoochee Technical College.

Brett worked for Carvana as a CDL driver. Working for Carvana allowed Brett to travel and enjoy the scenic views. In his down time, he enjoyed Georgia’s waterfalls and game nights with his family. Brett was an avid sports fan; he played golf and loved rooting for UGA football team, the Atlanta Hawks, and the Braves.

Brett, the “gentle giant,” was so caring and supportive of everyone around him. Always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. He will truly be missed by all those who had the honor to know him.

Brett is preceded in death by his grandfathers, Richard E. Nienaber and Arthur F. Como and aunt, Vickie Como Pratt.

Leaving behind to cherish his memories are his parents, Lori J. Como and Timothy J. Como (Melda); grandmothers, Margery A. Nienaber and Lois J. Como; sister, Megan E. Collins (Greg); niece, Dakota L. Collins, and a host of relatives and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Brett’s honor may be made to the Humane Society.

The family has requested that all in attendance of the Memorial gathering on October 18, 2021 from 6-8PM at Roswell Funeral Home please wear masks or facial coverings.

My most sincere condolences to his entire family. I’ve only known Brett less than a year, but his smile and friendly attitude will most certainly be missed. I looked forward to seeing him a few times each week, on his trips to Concord, and although he was always in a hurry to return home, he always made time for small talk. My heart goes out to his family and hope they can take solace knowing they raised a great young man that brought so much joy to others. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayer.

I have known Brett since he was 14 and he has always been one of my favorites. I remember helping him tie his tie on the days the basketball team had to dress up. Brett has always been there to support his mom and sister. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts. Love to all of you.
