Celebration of life planned for Hansi Brenninger
Friends and family plan to honor Hansi Brenninger at a celebration of life April 15 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Sundeck on Aspen Mountain. All those whose lives were touched by the man his family describes as a “champion at life” are invited to participate.
The recent passing of another family member had prompted Hansi to share with his wife Kelley what he would want after his death. He said he’d have liked for celebrants — and he did want it to be a celebration — to be comfortable in their dress and consider wearing a crazy hat or lederhosen, which he loved to sport.
Chief among his many passions was Hansi’s fierce love, pride and dedication for his children: daughter Emily, 15, and son Max, 12. The Emily and Max Growing Up Fund, which will aid in their futures, milestones, dreams and goals, has been established at Alpine Bank and CrowdRise. Online giving is available at: http://www.crowdrise.com/emily-and-max-growing-up-fund/fundraiser/EmilyMax.
Tenants at the city’s oldest deed-restricted housing complex, Centennial Apartments, faced rent hikes as high as 30% in January that sent city, county, and APCHA officials into closed-door meetings with the relatively new landlord, Birge & Held.
