Brennan Andrew Wilkins

Brennan Andrew Wilkins, three months, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012, at Riverview Medical Center, Wisconsin Rapids.

Services will be at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012, at Herman-Taylor Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids. Reverend Kristi Kleinbeck will officiate. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the time of services on Sunday at the funeral home. Burial will be at Northland Memorial Park in Rhinelander at a later date.

Brennan was born on Aug. 25, 2012, in Wisconsin Rapids, to Andrew and Gail (Catalano) Wilkins. He was an exceptionally happy and lively baby. Brennan's big dimples and talkative nature were infectious, bringing joy to all those around him. He was especially loved by his big brother, Christopher.

Brennan is survived by his parents, Andrew and Gail Wilkins; brother, Christopher Wilkins; maternal grandfather, Joseph (Nicole Caz) Catalano; paternal grandparents, Bob and Linda Wilkins; maternal great-grandfather, Joseph Catalano; aunts and uncles, Tony (Tiffeny) Catalano, Bob (Kristel) Wilkins, Bill (Amy) Wilkins and Kate (Mike) Behring; 10 first cousins; and extended family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Oakie Catalano.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed in Brennan's memory to First Candle/SIDS Alliance, 1314 Bedford Ave, Suite 210, Baltimore, MD 21208.

A heartfelt word of thanks and gratitude goes to Ramona and Paul Mathews for the kind and loving care they have given both Brennan and Christopher.
