Grief is the price of love

It’s worth it a thousand times over…


We said goodbye to Leo Brenneis 12/20 after a heroic fight against ALS for almost 2 years.


Leo was born and raised in Wisconsin but was a Colorado man at heart.  Even after he moved to Texas he would ski in Colorado as often as possible.  Shortly after he married, he was able to realize his dream and moved to Telluride.

Leo gave 150% to everyone and everything and strived for perfection in everything he did.  Leo never met a stranger and could talk to just about anyone.  He had the unique ability to connect with people.  He just had to flash his contagious smile to make everyone’s day better.

Leo enjoyed living in the mountains of Colorado and all the friends he made along his way through life.  Always athletic, he loved snowmobiling, riding dirt bikes, jet skis, waterskiing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, camping.  He recently bought a Harley. He enjoyed riding over the mountain passes in search of the next best meal or pie.  Whatever he was doing, he lived life to the fullest.

Leo excelled at being a friend, husband, brother, uncle and for a short time, Dad to his son Patrick.

Leo chose not to have a funeral service but opted for a burial with a celebration of life at a future date.

Crippin Funeral Home is assisting Mr. Brenneis’ family.
