Brennan was born on August 25, 2012 in Wisconsin Rapids to Andrew and Gail (Catalano) Wilkins. He was an exceptionally happy and lively baby. Brennan's big dimples and talkative nature were infectious, bringing joy to all those around him. He was especially loved by his big brother, Christopher.

He is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Oakie Catalano.
