Our loving father, husband, grandpa, and uncle, Leo Frank Brandt, 94, passed away suddenly and peacefully at home on July 25, 1923.
He was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, on March 26, 1929, to Frank and Emma Brandt.
His career included master plumbing, logging and for the last 20 years, the “main man” at Spencer and Company.
He loved going to the woods with family and friends to cut wood for heating their homes for the winter. He enjoyed the camping trips (Tally Lake) with Dad being the head barbecuer.
He was an endless helper to his family and friends. He was honored as Volunteer of the Year at the Salvation Army in 1989.
He is survived by his wife Margaret, marriage of 74 years, along with his children; Donna Spencer, Ronnie Brandt (Kathy), Debbie Kraus (Ron), Theresa Eickert (Boot), Carla Brandt, Randy Brandt (Thelma), Barbara Lipp (Jerry) and Patsy Stinger (Kevin); his sister, Emily Combs; 17 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; many great-great-grandchildren; and his faithful puppy, Jack.
He was preceded in death by his son, Samuel Leo Brandt Sr.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, July 31, at Buffalo Hill Funeral Home, with final resting place at Glacier Memorial Garden.
The family wishes to extend our utmost appreciation to chaplain Michelle of Braveheart Ministry, along with the first responders who helped us at a very difficult time. If you wish to give a donation in Leo’s honor to Braveheart Ministry, it would be most deserving so they can continue to help others.
Dad, we love you and our lives will be forever touched by the memories of you. Your helping hand that always helped us will no longer be reaching out, but we will hold you and those memories close to our hearts forever and ever.To order memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Leo Frank Brandt, please visit our flower store.
