Brett M. Wise

Oct. 5, 2019 – May 29, 1987

Brett M. Wise, 32, passed away unexpectedly in his home Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, in Homer.

Brett was born May 29, 1987, in Homer, and lived his entire life experiencing what the great outdoors had to offer. He was an accomplished mariner, commercial fisherman, avid hunter and adventure-seeking outdoorsman.

Since he was a child, he had incredible sport fishing skills that would put the rest to shame and always seemed to know the best spot at the river to pull fresh bounty for our tables each and every time.

Brett was always generous in sharing his spoils, as well as with sharing his time in taking care of his family and friends.

His generosity knew no bounds. He was a beloved son and member of our family, our friends and community. Brett will be remembered and missed by all.

Brett is survived by his parents, Lisa and John Wise; his siblings, TJ and Sarah Wise; his father, Kerby Mitchell; and siblings Shayla Plourd, Michael Mitchell, and Matthew Mathews; grandparents, Max and Patsy Mitchell, Margie Meachum, and Cora Mae Wise; several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; as well as countless friends, brothers and comrades, all who helped forge the man we love and who we will miss forever.

The family invites you to join them and all who knew and loved Brett to attend his celebration of life at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, 2019, at the Land’s End Resort Quarter Deck. Reception to follow.

Please come share in Brett’s celebration of life — a life well lived.
