Craig Zero Richard Brandt, age 64, of Cumming passed away peacefully Monday, Dec. 1, 2014, in his home.
Craig was born in Milwaukee, Wis., on April 13, 1950, to Ralph and Virginia (Boughton) Brandt. Craig attended WWTC in La Crosse, Wis., and obtained his engineering degree. While in school, he worked at the G. Heilman Brewery as a security guard. After receiving his degree, he worked at Rexnord in Milwaukee, Wis., where he had the opportunity to travel the world. From that job, he transferred to Andritz in Cumming, where he serviced seven to 10 pulp plants as a Mechanical Engineer Project Manager.
Craig is survived by his four siblings, Dale (Patty) Brandt of Phoenix, Ariz., Mark (Kathy) Brandt of Osseo, Wis., Marsha (Mark) Von Arx of Hokah, Minn., Sharon (Lee) Mason of Glendale, Ariz.; many nieces and nephews; two great-nephews and two great-nieces; and his two special friends Sandra and Ken, who were like his second family and always by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Virginia Brandt; nephew, Sheldon Lee Mason; and his maternal and paternal grandparents.
Craig was a fun-loving, generous, and well-liked person with a very optimistic outlook on life. He had a heart of gold, and always had a positive attitude, which helped him win his recent battle against Salivary Gland Cancer. He enjoyed traveling, whether for work or with his family and friends, entertaining and cooking, shopping, watching sporting events, and the occasional 4 o'clock happy hour.
His family will have a memorial service in Cumming, and a private burial ceremony in La Crescent, Minn. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for a memorial to be donated to the in Memory of Craig's victory in fighting against cancer.
