Brett Alexander Reaume of Blenheim ON, born in Chatham ON passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on July 30, 2020.
Born July 1, 1959 to Madeline Marie VanPottelberg and Forest Reaume (both predeceased).
Leaving behind his wife Nancy (Rietdyk) and sons Michael (Lori) and Andrew (Kaitlyn); his grandchildren Madisyn and Colton who were his brightest lights.
He also leaves his sister Shelley Glover (Joe), parents-in-law Joe and Jackie Rietdyk, sisters-in-law Shirley Rietdyk (Dave Simpson) and Samantha Keene, brother-in-law Pete Rietdyk and cherished nephews and nieces.
Brett built a successful business (Westside Performance Plus) through sheer will and hard work and raced cars and played with the same passion and determination. His sons are following closely in his footsteps and he was incredibly proud of them both. He was loved by many, always looked for the good in people and was willing to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
As he wished, cremation has taken place. Online condolences are welcomed and cherished. Donations to the Chatham-Kent Hospice would be appreciated.
There will be a private family celebration of his life, and when we are able, we will be holding an open celebration of life.
