He is preceded in death by his sister, Shaina Underwood; grandfather, Roger Conley; grandfather, Harold Stephens; grandmother, Dot Green; and great-grandmother, Stella Harris, who spent countless hours looking after him as a small child.

Brett was funny, witty, talented, intelligent, and creative. He had a strong instinct to help others and held a great love for animals, including his beloved pets, Sammy, Pandora, and Derek. He enjoyed fishing, hiking, playing video games, and had a talent for writing poetry and songs. He loved playing baseball, football, wrestling, and running track at Armuchee. He was also handy and quick to figure out how to do most anything. He had such a spark about him and will be greatly missed. We take comfort in knowing that he had accepted Christ as his Savior. We challenge you to help honor him by finding a way to serve and give to others.
