Bret worked as a manager, supervisor, and technician in several areas of maintenance. In addition to working for the Railroad, he worked for School Dist. 25, Bannock Regional, Portneuf Medical Center and had two of his own contracting businesses.

Bret met the love of his life Krystal Conn and they have spent the last ten years of his life camping, fishing, and ATV riding creating memories with family and friends. Bret loved the outdoors, he was an avid hunter and fisherman, and loved spending time at his 2nd home on the Blackfoot Reservoir. Bret’s greatest joy was spending time with his kids and grandkids. He was very educated in so many ways. Even when he fell ill, it never stopped him from all of his on going projects. He always kept himself busy until the very end.
