Family, friends and fans came together to celebrate the life of former University of Hawai‘i QB Colt Brennan on Sunday, March 20 at Waikiki Beach in front of Duke’s Restaurant. Emceed by Kimo Kahoano, the ceremony included speeches from former UH Football head coach June Jones, current coach Timmy Chang, Colt’s father Terry Brennan, and sister Chanel Brewster. Following the beach ceremony, friends and fans were able to accompany the family in a paddle out where Colt’s ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean.
Fans are encouraged to continue to share personal memories of Colt Brennan using the hasghtag #OneLoveColt on social media. Anyone interested in donating toward The Colt Brennan Legacy Fund of the Hawai‘i Community Foundation may visit hawaiicommunityfoundation.org/colt-fund for more information. Funds raised will support causes that Colt cared about, including UH Athletics and youth sports. It will also benefit organizations that advocate and provide resources toward making a difference in the lives of individuals struggling with mental health and addiction issues.
In addition, Barefoot League and HiLife have also collaborated to design a Colt Brennan Tribute shirt, available for $30 online at hilifeclothing.com. All proceeds from t-shirt sales benefit The Colt Brennan Legacy Fund.
