Craig Brenneis

Dec. 2, 1951-Feb. 24, 2014

NORMAN — Craig Brenneis, 62, of Norman, Okla., passed away Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, in Norman. He was born Dec. 2, 1951, to Edward Frank and Bette Jo (Wigham) Brenneis in Duncan, Okla.

Craig was an entrepreneur as a child, and his many talents continued into adulthood. After graduating from Duncan High School in 1970, he began his career in the oil and gas industry. Craig has been in the oil and gas business all of his life and retired as an owner/operator of Brenneis Oil. He stayed in touch with his high school buddies and has always enjoyed good times, traveling the world and fishing in the Gulf Bay area. Craig’s generosity was known by his family and friends, but he will be best remembered for his humor and pranks, some of which tested the metal of his friendships. Most of all, he loved his family and he made sure they were taken care of. Craig married Christine Uhter on July 15, 2001, in South Padre Island, Texas, and together they raised their daughter Rio.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ed and Bette Brenneis, his brother, Eddie Brenneis, his dear friend, Jack Taylor, and his bird dog, Willie.  Craig is survived by his wife, Christine Brenneis; his two daughters, Ashley Resewehr and husband Shane of Bethany, Okla., and Rio Brenneis of Norman; his two brothers, Dan Brenneis and wife Sandy of Oklahoma City; Joe Brenneis and wife Ula Karen of Duncan; and his three grandchildren, Katelyn Brenneis, Karly Resewehr, and Colton Resewehr.

Memorial Service for Craig will begin at 10 a.m., Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, at the Havenbrook Funeral Home Chapel, 3401 Havenbrook Street in Norman.

Arrangements for Craig and his family were placed in the care of the Vice family at the Havenbrook Funeral Home of Norman.
