He is survived by his parents, Clem and Barbara King Brandt of Marthasville, MO; son, Jesse (Julie) Brandt of Monett, MO; six siblings, Kenneth (Julie) Brandt of Troy, MO, Mary (Scott) DePolito of Lake St. Louis, MO, John (Angela) Brandt of O'Fallon, MO, Cheree (Dave) Daven of Wentzville, MO, Denise (Dave) Denny of Ellisville, MO, Debbie (Matt Perl) Blumoff of O'Fallon, MO; nieces and nephews, Angelo, Marissa, Gia, Ava, Lana, Luke, Kaylee, Cody, Hunter, Amber, Drew, Tera, Kelly, Logan, and Jennifer; seven grandchildren; and his beloved dogs, Roxy and Sammy. 

Chris loved his family, friends and his dogs. He enjoyed hanging out, vacationing at the lake and celebrating the holidays, especially the Fourth of July. Chris' boisterous sense of humor was infectious and would have everyone smiling and laughing in no time. He was truly the life of the party wherever he went. He was an amazing master carpenter but in his free time he used to love to play hockey, and now he watches the "Blues" play. He also loved spending time with his dogs, watching movies and fishing. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to No Time To Spare Animal Rescue And Sanctuary, or 5 Acres Animal Shelter.
