So sad to read about Brens passing, he gave so many of us amazing memories throughout cubs and scouts and dedicated a huge amount of his life to teach so many. Forever grateful to Bren for giving me some of my happiest childhood memories. Bren always had a smile beamed across his face the friendliest man you could ever meet. So saddened by this news, you were one in a million Bren forever grateful to you. Rest in peace, Jade xx

Funeral was a fitting tribute to Bren's memory Ali and family did a wonderful job. So glad I could watch on-line (as I am in England) but it seemed as if we were there. The wonderful memories his family have will last forever. Goodnight and God bless Bren, hope your lovely Mum had the Baby Powers ready for your arrival up there!
