Brandon L. Garecht, Janesville, WI
February 26, 1989 - November 12, 2017
Janesville - Brandon L. Garecht, age 28, of Janesville, passed away Sunday Nov. 12, 2017, from a car accident. He was born on Feb. 26, 1989, to Sharon Truman and Jeff Garecht. He graduated from Joseph A. Craig High School in 2007. Brandon was afflicted by a lifelong addiction. But, he was stronger, and more motivated, than his demons; he had recently celebrated 5 ½ years of sobriety. Brandon was determined to become the man he had always wanted to be, and was excited about his future. Grateful for a second chance, and the opportunity to make amends, Brandon was taking life for all it had to offer. He was great with kids, a loving uncle. A lifelong athlete, he enjoyed basketball and baseball. You could often find him cheering on the Bucks, or his Packers. He adored his mom, and drew from her strength and support. He was kind hearted and always had a crooked smile or a hug to share. He enjoyed his job at URT, and spent his free time with his girlfriend and her two children.
Brandon is survived by his mother, Sharon (Candi); his father, Jeff; his sister, Andrea; nephew, Zayden; his grandma, Billie; his aunts: Marcia, Judy Jude, Barb, and Shelly (Jim); his uncles: Bill (Jackie), Tim (Rhonda), Gary (Kathy), and Butch; numerous cousins; including one special cousin, KK; extended family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his Grandpa Garecht; Aunt Julie; Grandma Rose; Grandpa Fred; Uncle Fred; Uncle Rodger; and Uncle Scott.
Visitation will take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19th, 2017, at Schneider Funeral Home & Crematory, at 1800 E. Racine Street, Janesville WI. A short memorial service will follow. For online obituary and registry: www.schneiderfuneraldirectors.com
