Sadness mixed with hope fill our hearts as we announce the passing of Wes Brandt (Eldon Wesley Brandt). On Monday, June 10, 2019 in the Health Science Centre ER, Winnipeg, MB., Wes left this earth for eternity. Though Sadness fills our hearts at his sudden departure, hope remains for a future reunion.
Though life carried many struggles for Wes, he often spoke with his sister, Grace, about God.
Wes was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and grew up as the second youngest of five children. He loved hockey and cycling. Through the years he did many different jobs but was especially skilled as a painter.
Even when life’s challenges were overwhelming, Wes often thought of others and was concerned about the welfare and safety of those he loved. He spoke on the phone with his brother, Larry often.
He is survived and missed by his son whom he loved very much, Jared (Jaymi), grandchildren Jazer, Junia, and Judah; his brother Larry; sisters Beverly, Grace (Harold), and Glenda.
Wes was predeceased by parents Henry and Elizabeth Brandt and sister Betty Lou.
A funeral service to remember Wes’ life will be held in the chapel at Southland Church in Steinbach on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 2pm.
Interment will take place at Heritage Cemetery, Steinbach, MB.
For those seeking to make donations in memory of Wes, donations can be made to Adult & Teen Challenge of Central Canada 414 Edmonton St.; Winnipeg, MB R3B 9Z9.
“Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18)
