So sorry to hear about Brants' Passing, I was fortunate enough to get to know him when he worked with Rocky at NTC. He was such a a neat kid with a heart as big as Texas, a heck of a mechanic and a huge animal lover. He and our Mac were pretty tight. Mac always searched till he found him in the shop knowing Brant would have some kind of treat and a lot of cuddles for him. Kid you will be missed by so many friends, two AND four legged.. Safe journey my friend and until we meet again rest easy big man.

Brant, you were definitely one of a kind. I’m so glad I had the pleasure of knowing you. I was so shocked to hear of your passing but remember how stubborn you were where your health was concerned. I’m so sorry we lost touch. Had I known, I would have contacted you when I was home. Now you are free and no longer have to worry. I bet you have everyone laughing up there. God Bless my friend.

My condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Brant's family!
I had the privilege of meeting him when we attended Haig/Lake Minatare via sports and country school dances. We all then transitioned into our next venture of Scottsbluff Jr/Sr High where we would often times park our pick-ups in the parking lots. As I have not seen him in a while, I will never forget his smile; soft, caring eyes; and a man who was always there for others as he would sometimes follow me home after cruising to make sure I got home safe. May Brant's next venture be peaceful with recovered health and vitality! Prayers for you all at this time of a great loss!

When I got the call telling me you were gone, I thought that this truly can't be happening. I was so angry and so sad to know that I would never get to talk with you ever again. But I know that I will cherish all the great times we all had with you...our trips to Mullen, going tanking or our 4 wheeling trips up to Nemo. Being the Best Man at mine and Jason's wedding!! Those memories I will cherish forever!! I love you Brant!!

Although it's been a while, I will always have memories of sneaking out of the basketball games to drink with you and Chris. You were always the nice guy that everyone knew. I hope you are relaxing and worry-free now.

We will miss you Stick!

Reflecting on several great memories of my time with stick and nothing stands out more than what a very happy person he was. I cannot think of a single time that he wasn't smiling, cracking jokes and having fun even when times were tough he would find a way to joke about it and keep a positive attitude. I have always admired that from him.

I miss the great times we had and am sad we won't be making more memories for a while.

Dear Stricker family-

I am so sorry for your loss. I have a lot of great memories of Brant. Starting with him teasing me at Sunday school, country school dances, track meets, and some other fun shenanigans in high school. May you be comforted by your good memories. May he rest in peace.
