Brennan E. Eby
February 24, 1984 ~ August 24, 2023 (age 39) 39 Years Old
With sadness, we announce Brennan Eby’s untimely passing just shy of his 40th birthday. Brennan was a beautiful and kind-hearted soul, who cared deeply, and loved fully.
Growing up in our small town of Oliver, British Columbia, he developed a strong bond with the place and its community which he carried with him even as he moved to Southern California, lending his talents to improve California’s power grid infrastructure, shoulder-to-shoulder with his work family at the Rising Edge Group.
His generous spirit and zest for life was a light in our lives, and while his passing leaves behind a void for us all, his legacy will forever shine bright. A special place in his heart was reserved for his niece Annika, who represented for Brennan a renewed sense of purpose and responsibility which he took seriously and gave him a reason to buy puppies for someone else.
Brennan is pre-deceased by grandmother Donna Mann, grandfather David Eby, and cousin Cassandra Mann. He is survived by his pup Syrah, parents (Paul and Barbara Eby), grandparents (Philip and Eleanor Smith; Kathleen Eby), sister (Stephanie Eby), niece (Annika Eby), aunts and uncles (Joan and Leonel St. Amand; James and Shirley Smith; Kathleen Smith and Chris Gutsche-Smith; David Mann and Lisa Van Colen; Doug and Cathy Mann; Brad and Pat Eby; Alan and Gwen Eby; and Peter Eby); half-brother (Keith Nelson); and numerous cousins in Canada and the U.S. We will remember him as a loving dog-dad, son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin, and most of all, friend.
In Brennan’s memory, we ask that you celebrate his life by taking your dog for a walk, watching his favorite movie “I Am Sam,” or enjoying a medium rare steak with a charcuterie board on the side. And if you are a single young lady, make it a point to chat with the next single guy walking a pup all by his lonesome – you’d be making that dude’s day.
A small celebration of life will be held in Huntington Beach, with another to follow towards the end of September in Oliver.
