Brandon Joseph Brust
Our beloved son, brother, and friend Brandon Brust was tragically taken before his time in February of 2022. Brandon was born March 26th, 1995, to Wally and Lori Brust. He spent his childhood in Selkirk, later moving to East Selkirk with his sisters Dianna and Dawn Brust.
Growing up you could always find Brandon outside with his friends frog hunting, raiding gardens, or building tree forts in the summer. The winter months never slowed him down either, outside skating or snowboarding. When not outside he spent his time playing Nintendo 64 or bugging his sisters to hang out with him.
Later in life he took to hockey where he made a lot of great friends and found a love for the sport. Sometimes grumbling about having to go, but he always ended up having fun.
By high school his passions shifted to vehicles, always ready to take his friends for a rip in the mustang. He loved anything with wheels starting with his dune buggy then onto his dirt bike until he could get his drivers license. He eventually got a few project cars like his Civic that he spent time working on. And once in awhile borrowing his dad’s truck to sneak off for some mudding.
Brandon was also very passionate about the people he spent time with. Even though he was the youngest of three he was always protective of his sisters, ready to stick up for them in a moment. He was one the best friends you could ask for, ready to lend you a place to stay, a meal or a ride, whatever you needed. Once his friend, there was nothing he wouldn’t do for you.
Brandon is incredibly missed by everyone who knew him, and we are deeply saddened that we won’t get the chance to know who he would have become in his later years. He was taken from us far too soon.
Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of his Life will be held on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel in Selkirk, Manitoba. The service will be livestreamed and can be viewed via the following link https://youtu.be/1yVUxZ2fggM
