My sympathy to Dr. Brennan's family; he was a compassionate doctor, made house calls to the far south west side of town, which was definitely appreciated. My husband and I remember him fondly. Peace be with you.

What a man, what a Dr. and what a blessing !!!!!!!!!!!

Thoughts and prayers to the entire Brennan Family. Dr. Brennan was a very special individual who never forgot where he came from. After our dad's passing, he was always told mom, he was only a phone call away. He was a friend for life to her and I'm sure to others,that began at St. Roses'.

Deepest sympathy to his family and friends. He delivered my 7 siblings and myself between from 1947 to 1961. Blessings to all.
January 18, 2014
It was a pleasure working with Dr. Brennan at St. Joseph's Hospital in the delivery room in the early 1960's. He taught me so much.
January 17, 2014
My condolences to the entire Brennan family. I believe he delivered all of the 13 Von Rueden children and we thank him for that! I was in grade school, a friend of Mike, and really admired him. What made such an impression on me was that he seemed to be such a quiet, humble, and gentle man but had such a powerful presence! Very few people can live their life in such an unassuming manner and still have such a strong influence. He definitely had the deep, genuine respect and admiration of all who knew him. While I didn't know him that well, it was that impression he made on me when I was just a little kid that I remember to this day! What a blessing it was to learn that lesson at such a young age! Mrs Brennan was also such a classy lady! Again, my sincere condolences to the entire Brennan clan and thanks for all the blessings received from the Brennans to the Von Rueden family!

Dr Brennan was such a kind man with a generous heart, twinkling eyes, dynamic smile and a great sense of humor. I have fond memories of him from the days I worked in my Dad's office next door to Dr Brennan in the Bockl Building.

May he rest in peace.

Dearest Brennan Family,

Through you, Dr. Brennan and his faith have touched us all and taught us much. I am honored to have known your husband/dad/grandfather.
January 16, 2014
My mom and dad sat behind Dr. and Mrs. Brennnan for years at the Marquette basketball games. Their names were Joe & Julia Anderer and they thought the world of your family. I used to always talk to your parents about how much I loved their beautiful home in Tosa. You could see the pride beam on their face as they discussed their home and their wonderful children. What truly kind and wonderful people.

My mom and dad were at heavens gate to meet him in their MU gear with assorted memories of the days passed. Now I will pray for healing in your hearts as you navigate the world without him. Hugs to your mom, she is going to need her family now more than ever.

Dr. Brennan was a wonderful and caring man. He delivered 3 of my children. The first time I went to his office, we talked for over an hour about the circus and many other things. He took his time with everyone and had such a kind manner about him. He talked often about how my husband and I had to ride the motorcyle to the hospital to have my son Victor beause our car wouldnt start.

He was a loving man and will be missed by many.

My Prayers are with your family...

My condolences to the family of Dr. Brennan. He was my OB-GYN during the 80's and delivered two of my three healthy babies. It was a pleasure to hear him say, "Babies in good position" and to know he was a doctor who had a great bed-side manner. My first delivery in August of 81, he left a family outing at State Fair to make sure I was comfortable and assured me that he wanted to be a part of my experience of becoming a mother. My second daughter was born during a bad snowstorm. When I arrived at St. Joe's he was already there. May his soul rest in peace, and his memory live forever.
January 16, 2014

Dr. Brennan delivered both of my children in the 80's. He was generous, kind, and very busy. Thanks for serving the Milwaukee community for all these years.
January 16, 2014
Dr. Brennan was a very special gift to me back in 1971 when I was looking for OB Dr. He delivered all three of my children. I was so blessed to have this great man take care of me and my children. I have often thought of him over the years. His quiet demeanor and gentle nature assured me all was well as my husband and I received into this world three beautiful children who give us great joy. A great man and father, rest in peace.

Thank you Dr. Brennan for delivering me 48 years ago, safe and sound :)
January 15, 2014
To Joan and all the children and extended clan, Dr. Brennan served out family twice: delivered all 4 of our children at St. Joes and then welcomed my presence at the First Friday prolife group that met there until a few years ago when it changed to the First Tuesday group that continues to meet at our Love Life Library (his dedication to life initiated years before Roe v Wade) began my training in "respect for all human life & love". Thank you Dr. B and may this continue, Joan, in you and yours...Grateful for his spirit of life.
January 15, 2014
Dr. & Mrs. Brennan are my god-parents and therefore held a special place in my life. I will never forget Dr. Brennan's great sense of humor and the special way he cheered on the Marquette Warriors. Oh, I loved going to those games & seeing the Brennans, way back when Al & Hank were coaching in the old Milwaukee arena. Great memories made even more special because of my god-parents!

John & Joan were dear friends of my parents and John certainly was a very special man.

We will keep the Brennan Family close in prayer.
January 15, 2014
Rest in Peace Good and Faithful Servant. What a man! May the countless babies whom he fought so tirelessly on behalf of be there to welcome him home.
January 15, 2014
Doctor Brennan delivered my 3 children also as he did many others but I still felt special because he treated each birth with the utmost attention and care. I feel blessed to have known such a dedicated doctor and person. My prayers go to Mrs. Brennan and the family.
January 15, 2014
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Your Dad was such a great man! I have many great high school memories spent at your house. Whenever I walked in to the house your Dad would say ....the great Robin Rogo is here... and he would clap. Always making you feel welcome.
God Bless.

Thinking of Dr. Brennan in his passing, as he delivered two of our six children 25 years ago. Such a great pro life doctor; really appreciated that he was and how he truly cared for his patients.
January 15, 2014
When I was pregnant with baby #6 , had no insurance and was still paying off baby #5, Dr. Brennan (who did not even know me) went to the board at St. Joseph's hospital and told them I needed help. I got that help, had my baby free of charge and never forgot his generosity. Today, that baby is a young man, college educated and is a police officer. I will be having a Mass said for him and will pray for him and his family daily. Thank you Dr. Brennan!
January 15, 2014
On behalf of the entire Doucette family, please except our condolences. We have lost another of the all-time greats, who has taught us much by example. Heaven's mothers and their babies will surely be well looked after. God's speed to Dr. Brennan.
January 15, 2014
John devoted his life to the unborn child. I had the privilege over 40 years of working with John in these endeavors. His family was number one in his life. He had a strong belief in God. I love you John.

John was amazing. For a few years I gave pro-life talks to students at MUHS and always had a doctor come along to make a stronger impression on them. Often, at the last minute, the doctor would have to cancel. If I called John, he would leave an office full of patients and came to the high school. Joan, I enjoyed working with him and with you at the Ronald McDonald House in 'Tosa. John gave 200% all the time. The world was a better place because of him. Ann Brebeck
January 15, 2014
What a great man! He has a huge Marquette University basketball and football fan. His hollering "Hickey, you hamburger!" at the basketball games still resonates throughout the Arena.
January 15, 2014
R.I.P. dear Dr. Brennan!
All four of my children were delivered by the good Dr. He was the kindest, most caring individual I have ever met. When my oldest was born- 48 years ago- he encouraged my husband to be in the delivery room(this at a time when it was not the norm). My husband never forgot that-or his words when the baby was delivered- "pregnancy is complete",and spoke of it until his dying day.
Thank you Dr. Brennan, for a life well lived.
January 15, 2014
My sincere condolences to Joan and the rest of the great Brennan clan. A special man and a special wife and family. God bless, Luigi

Dear Brennan family: What a wonderful life your dad had and what a truly special man. I have very fond memories of spending many a sleep over at the Brennan home in the Highlands. Sledding down the hill, swimming in the pool, playing hide-and-go-seek in their lovely home...that always welcomed a gaggle of kids. Mary (my classmate at Sebs) and all the other wonderful Brennans...my heart breaks for your immense loss but I am certain the best parts of your Dad live on in all of you. Blessings and love as you celebrate the incredible life of Dr. John Brennan.
