Obituary for Christopher “Chris” Wade Brant It is with great sadness that the family and friends of Christopher Wade Brant announce his passing after a long and brave battle with cancer. Chris passed away peacefully surrounded by family and ascended into heaven to be with his Heavenly Father on May 12, 2018 at the age of 58 years. Chris was born to his late parents, Vernon and Judith Brant, on August 8, 1959 in Orlando, FL. He attended Oakridge High School where, at the age of 16, he met the love of his life, Maria, and began what would become a truly rich and full life. He attended Edison Community College for 2 years before receiving a full scholarship to play baseball at Louisiana State University. Chris proudly wore #10 as shortstop for the Tigers. He was an exceptional player who broke many records that, to this day, remain untouched. After graduating college, he went on to play professional baseball in Nettuno, Italy where he made many memories that he fondly spoke of to anyone who would listen. Shortly after returning from Italy, he married Maria and began his family. If you knew Chris, you know the love he had for his family was unparalleled. He spent the bulk of his career working in the family business. Within the last few years of his life, he began working at the law firm of O’Connor and O’Connor. He enjoyed the work tremendously, while simultaneously experiencing a sense of community and closeness with everyone. Chris was a lifelong parishioner of St. John Vianney Church and an active member of his Cursillo group. Through this group, he forged friendships that evolved into a much deeper bond. Those friends are now forever family. His faith was of utmost importance to him and brought him comfort and peace knowing that his journey on this earth would lead to a heavenly reception. He loved the outdoors, hiking, fishing, and the solitude and tranquility of the mountains. Cars were a special interest of his. He was an especially avid Jeep aficionado. He will forever be in our hearts. Chris is survived by his wife of 34 years, Maria; daughters Andrea (Joey) and Lindsey; grandson Jackson; sister Jill (Michael) Smeal; sister in law Carol (Michael) Enright; father in law Otto Rodriguez; nieces Morgan and Tiffany; nephews Alex, Tyler, and Trent.

Sympathies message

  1. Maria,
    I just learned of Chris’ death today after calling the office. Know that Chris was a wonderful, compassionate friend I grew up with on Lake Conway together. We played so many different sports in our elementary school years -we were like brothers in many different ways, collecting baseball cards, swimming, and getting into trouble together. He was my partner in crime.

    Know that you and your two girls are in my prayers as I’m sure yo miss him greatly.
    Warmest wishes and hugs,
    Chip Coleman
    San Francisco Bay Area
