Biography

Ben Brennan, our precious son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend to many, passed on April 5, 2023. Ben is survived by his father, Ernie Brennan, mother, Nancy Saunders, brother Garret Brennan (Meaghan Pollock), and Grandmother, Vera Saunders (Ed MacDonald), several uncles and aunts, cousins and countless friends. Ben had a lifelong love of art, music, reading and writing. He was extremely talented, a brilliant student and completed the Recording Arts Program at NSCC and was studying English Literature at the University of Kings College. He recorded, mixed and engineered many EPs, and Albums for various bands in Nova Scotia over the years. Ben had the most beautiful smile, infectious laugh and was in his element when he was jamming or performing music with his friends. Ben played in a variety of bands, in Halifax and toured across Canada and European Countries. He was incredibly generous in sharing his knowledge and talents, in the humblest way. Ben loved to hike near the ocean and the peacefulness of being in nature. Ben was kind and compassionate and would help anyone. Ben is grieving with us, as he would have never made a decision to leave us all here without him, if he had been healthy. He had such deep love for all of us. We will forever love you, remember you and hold you deep in our hearts Ben. If you wish, a donation may be made to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, or a charity of your choice, in memory of Ben but most importantly remember him always and give love and kindness to everyone, as he did. A celebration of Ben's life will be planned and advertised in the coming weeks.
