Obituary for Terry F. Brabant

Terry Francis Brabant “Jake” passed away at home July 29th, 2022, surrounded by his family at the age of 68. Terry was born in Oconto, WI on August 21, 1953 to the late Francis “PeeWee” and Gloria (Grady) Brabant. He graduated from Oconto High School with the class of 1971. On February 12, 1972 he married Christine Calewarts. She preceded him in death on January 19, 2018. Together they had four children. Dad started his lifelong career for the city of Oconto as a firefighter/EMT on February 20, 1978. Over the years dad held many part-time jobs around town, making many friends. He worked at Lane and Son Feed Mill, Oconto Milling Company, Electrical Services, Stewart’s Heating and Cooling, and worked at the farm with his brother, Jeff, just to name a few. Dad officially retired from the fire department after giving 30 selfless years to the community on August 30, 2007. Terry enjoyed spending time with family, hunting, cooking, canning and teasing with his grandkids. We guarantee you never walked away from him without a ridiculous “Terryism” or a dumb joke!

Terry is survived by son, Jesse (Mary Drees); daughters, Michelle (Jesse) Grauvogl, Amy Brabant, Crystal (Ryan Courchaine) Brabant. Grandchildren, Braeden, Jacksen, Tyson, Kyle, Lily, and baby girl Courchaine due in September; significant other, Brenda Zimanek; brothers, Jim (Cindy) Brabant, Jeff (Kandy) Brabant, Jerry Brabant; sisters, Nancy Mayotte, Connie (Rueben) Boevers, Cindy (Bob) Boehm; In-laws, Dean (Sue) Calewarts and Judy (Gene) Wallenfang; and many nieces and nephews. Terry was preceded in death by his parents; infant sister, Judy; mother and father-in-law, Ray and Ilene Calewarts; daughter-in-law, Megan (Stellmacher) Brabant; and brother-in-law, Larry Mayotte.

The family will receive relatives and friends at the Gallagher Funeral Home, Oconto, from 4 to 8 PM Monday, August 1, 2022.
