MARCH 14, 1970 – APRIL 12, 2019

Brant Douglas Schelhaas, a longtime resident of Highlands Ranch, died at the age of 49 after a difficult but courageous battle with a rare form of blood cancer. His family has peace knowing that he is finally healed and savoring the full presence of God in heaven. They also take comfort in his reunion with his beloved son, Bryant, who died as a newborn in 2000.

Brant is survived by his wife of 23 years, Karen Booker Schelhaas, and their children, Booker (21), Brooklyn (17), Bella (16), Brock (14), and Bode (13). The family is affectionately known as The Schelhaas Seven. He is also survived by his parents, Doug and Elaine Schelhaas of Bismarck, ND; his three younger sisters, Nancy Shirley and Jayna Wiens, also of Bismarck, ND, and Karen Hostetter of Denver, along with their large families; his in-laws, Jim and Lois Booker of Colorado Springs, as well as the extended Booker clan who loved him dearly as one of their own. His calm presence, wise counsel, generous spirit, rich relationship with Jesus, coaching expertise, quick wit, artistic skills, fondness for good food and global travel, affinity for great coffee, savvy business sense, and unwavering integrity will be deeply missed by his loved ones, many friends, and hundreds of colleagues at Worldpay and other corporations where he spent his long career as a marketing and branding executive. He achieved his MBA from the University of Denver in 2005.

A memorial service is planned for May 16, 2019 at 2 PM at Mission Hills Church in Littleton, Colorado.
