| August 10, 2021 7:00 AM

Leonard Brett Rehard was born March 15, 1983, to Leonard Howard Rehard (Lennie) and Christy Ann Sabo (Gilbert) in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and passed away July 28, 2021, at the age of 38.

Brett lived in Coeur d'Alene and was married to the love of his life, AnnaLeasha Lynn Rehard (Mason), on July 24, 2010. Together, they brought their son, Colton, into the world.

Brett lived with his wife and son and truly loved the life that they built together. He was a devoted husband, brother, son, uncle and friend to all that knew him. His infectious laugh and contagious smile could light up any room. His main hobby was simply being with his family, enjoying activities like hiking, camping, hunting and fishing together. He loved being outdoors, enjoying God's country.

Brett had a career in sales, and spent a good part of his career in communications and auto sales. He became a finance manager towards the end of his career. Brett was a man of God, and showed it through the love he had for his family. He was always there for those that asked for his help and there for those who didn't ask. He adored his nieces and nephews and loved hanging out with them, just being "Uncle Butt.” He especially loved spending his time with his only child, Colton. He is missed dearly by so many.

Brett is survived by his wife, AnnaLeasha; their son, Colton; his father, Leonard Howard Rehard; his mother, Christy Ann Sabo; his stepdad, Stan Darlas; his sister, Jessica Turner (Bristol); his grandfather, John Darlas; his grandmother, Nancy Darlas; many aunts and uncles; and countless cousins, nieces and nephews.

He is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Leonard Harold Rehard and Agnes Rehard; and his maternal grandparents, Roger Gilbert and Arlene Gilbert of Thompson Falls.

Memorial Services were held at Yates Funeral Homes, Hayden Chapel in Hayden, Idaho, on Aug. 6, 2021. A private service will be held up the St. Joe River later in the year.
