EVERT (SONNY) BRANDS On Saturday, October 3rd, 2020, Evert (Sonny) Brands, husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, and friend passed away after an unexpected and tragically swift month-long battle with cancer. Sonny was born August 10th, 1960, to loving parents Linda Gile and Evert Brands in Huntington Beach, California. Sonny served his country as a gunner's mate in the Navy and then went on to earn his state contractor's license in California. He spent his life building beautiful homes for families in California and Nevada, having built more than 1,500 homes in his lifetime. A talented artist, Sonny also spent his life creating art for his friends and family, gifting those dear to him with beauty to remember him by. Sonny will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 28 years, Kimberly Brands; his children, Heather, Darcy, Sean, and Erica; his adopted son, Jarren; his brother, Tony; his grandchildren; his nephews; and his many loving and loyal friends. A small gathering of family will be held in celebration of Sonny's life with Pastor Jeff.

In memory of Sonny, tough as nails, heart of gold, gone too soon.
Kimmy, I pray God wraps his arms around you and you find comfort in knowing Sonny is cancer free and walking the streets of gold. He’s not gone, he just went ahead to prepare a place for you and you’ll see him again when the time is right.
I love you my dear friend! Call me any time!

All the times he has welcomed me in his home, I remember him as a great man who took pride in all of the things he did big and small, and then turned it into something great. You will be very missed Sonny and we will never forget you. God bless you up there now in the sky.

Sonny was the kindest man I've ever known. I was lucky enough to be his bride for 28 years. I will cherish every moment until the day I meet him again. I loved Sonny with all my heart and soul, and that love is eternal. I love you, my sweet man. -Kimmer
