As a father, husband, son, brother, uncle and friend, Brendan was as kind and gentle as they come. He was an intellectual of many varied interests, a lover of nature, a caregiver, a dog enthusiast, and a witty & humorous man. I will miss my uncle so much, and will cherish the memories I have with him exploring the museums of Chicago, hearing him tell old family stories, listening to Irish music, and discussing life & literature. His loss is felt so deeply by his family and my heart grieves for Mary, Eileen, and Brendan III.
