Samuel passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday, July 28, 2018 at the St Boniface Hospital, Winnipeg, MB. He leaves his wife Grema and four-month-old son Samuel Elijah to grieve his absence. He also leaves his grandparents David and Helena Reimer, parents Cornie and Hanna Brandt, and sisters Leah (Guy), Justina (Dave), Abigail (Larenzo), and Jeannine along with numerous nieces and nephews and a large extended family. He was predeceased by his first wife Maribel and his grandparents Isaac and Annie Brandt.

Samuel will be remembered as a passionate faith-filled man who possessed continual enthusiasm and optimism for life. Samuel embraced challenges with gusto. He loved to think outside the box and seize every opportunity. Samuel possessed a deep faith in God, love for people, and passion to make a difference in the world.

Samuel grew up on a farm in southeastern Manitoba where he developed many skills, interests, and dreams for his life as well as cultivating a deep personal faith in God. After university, he had various jobs but was primarily involved in the trucking industry, owned his own company, and worked as a driver and dispatcher. Samuel spent much time travelling and experienced many parts of the world, specifically spending some time in China.

In October 2014, Samuel married his first wife, Maribel. Four months after their wedding, she was tragically killed in a car accident. Following this loss, Samuel experienced some serious financial hardships. Although this was a very difficult and soul-searching time in his life, he kept up his faith and continually desired to use his difficult experience to encourage and motivate others. Just over two years ago, Samuel moved to Dubai - where he met and married his wife Grema. In March of this year, they moved to Winnipeg where their son, Samuel Elijah, was born. Samuel loved his wife and son exceedingly, and had big dreams for the future.

Samuel was an energetic and motivating leader, a loving father and husband, a good friend, and a fun-loving brother and uncle. We will always remember his adventurous spirit, his competitive risk-taking nature, loud voice, big laugh, and his deep yearning to inspire everyone around him.

Samuel will be deeply missed by everyone who had opportunity to encounter him. He has touched and impacted countless friends, family, and acquaintances from around the world. We know the encouragement and inspiration he left with all of us will not disappear at his passing, but continue in our hearts.

Donations in his memory can be made to his wife Grema and his baby son. A Go-Fund-Me page has been set up for this purpose:

The funeral service for Samuel will be held on Sunday, Aug. 5 at 3 p.m. at Church of the Rock in Winnipeg.

We thank the staff at St Boniface Hospital for the exceptional care they provided to Samuel in his last hours.
