    Bret was one of my boys. He was my basketball manager for several years at Frankfort High School. He was a hard worker and a loyal Hot Dog. I admired him and had great respect for him. We always had winning teams when he was on the bench with me. To the family, I give my deepest thoughts and prayers. Bret was a wonderful boy in high school and a became a wonderful young man. God Bless all the family at this time. So sorry for your loss. I will always remember Bret riding the Hot Dog mascot on the floor at half time.

      I remember Bret cheering on the Frankfort Hotdogs at games. Man, he was passionate about the games and loudly shouted out to the referees when things didn’t go our way. Bret was always so nice to me and he truly had a good heart and soul. I graduated in 1979 and it just wasn’t the same at games without Bret. Rest in Peace Bret, you have made your mark in life. My condolences to your family, just know that you will always carry his love in your heart. My prayers are with your family.
