He was predeceased by his father Dwayne Alexander Maier.
Brant was a hard worker, working a wide range of jobs over the years; in aviation, the oil fields, ranching, landscaping, welding and construction. He had many interests; loved the outdoors, animals, hockey and had a creative side, enjoying reading and crafts. And like his dad, he enjoyed lifting weights. He was especially good at painting statues which are obligatorily displayed by his family. Brant had a very active sense of humor, loved to tell jokes and stories. He was always up for an adventure few of which were devoid of mischief.
Whether he was launching model rockets with his nieces and nephew or plastering his walls with photos and drawings from them, he loved his family. Brant especially loved being a dad and after some very hilariously entertaining first attempts, quickly learned to change a diaper without gagging.
Brant had addiction issues throughout his adult life however awed many with his relentless determination and inner strength. Brant touched many people and was always dedicated to helping others. Addiction is hard to understand and Brant at times was judged harshly however always had a kind word even for those who criticized him and held his head high. We are so proud of his good heart, his strength and continued efforts as well as the positive impact he contributed to his environment.
Many thanks to Brant’s ‘back up’ family and all of those who reached out to him over the years.
And now, even if we are not ready, it is time for rest and peace as we forever carry you in our hearts and memories.
In support of Brant’s love of animals and his desire to make a difference, memorial donations can be made to the SPCA.
