Brennan “Brennan the Brave” Donald Stringer

Brennan “Brennan the Brave” Donald Stringer

Brennan went to be with the Lord on March 4, 2016, at his home in Prescott Valley, Arizona, after a lifelong battle with Tay-Sachs Disease.

Despite his struggles with this neuro-degenerative disease, Brennan lived many days full of smiles and laughter. He was constantly surrounded by people who cared for and loved him. He had a natural way of warming peoples’ hearts and was loved by many. Even those who never met him were moved by his story and his bravery. Brennan taught his family and those around him the true meaning of unconditional love.

Brennan is survived by his loving parents Royce and Holly Stringer; his brother Karson Stringer; his grandfather Donald Coffey; grandmother Annette Coffey; grandmother Valerie Stringer; grandmother Laura Mountain; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandfather Roy Stringer.

A private burial took place on March 11, 2016 at Mountain View Cemetery in Prescott, Arizona. A Celebration of Life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 2, 2016 at LifePointe Church in Prescott Valley, Arizona. All friends and family are welcome to attend. Brennan loved the color blue, so we request that those attending wear a shade of blue.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association, 2001 Beacon St., Suite 204, Boston, MA 02135 or online at
