Brandan M. Biever
Brandan M. Biever, age 23, of Tomahawk, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, Oct. 17, 2022, at his home. Brandan was born on Nov. 25, 1998, in Rhinelander, Wis., to Michael and Anastasia (Beiler) Biever.
Brandan grew up in Tomahawk where he was a 2017 graduate of the Tomahawk High School. After graduation, he attended the Blackwell Job Corp Center in Laona, Wis., completing the Construction Craft Laborer Program. He then attended the Hubert H. Humphrey Job Corp Center in St. Paul, Minn., in the Advanced Transportation Program, emphasizing in railroad. While there, he worked at the Minnesota Transportation Museum, a job he truly enjoyed. Brandan was a train enthusiast and had fond memories of he and his Grandpa Mike building model railroads in the basement. He just last month visited the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay.
Brandan loved going to the Minnesota State Fair with his Aunt Jackie and loved visits to Aunt Jessica’s to hang out on weekends. He was an avid fan of all Minnesota sports teams and was a talented hockey player who began playing hockey when he was five and continued at all levels and throughout high school. He later enjoyed officiating games, something he was proud to do with his dad. Attending “Hockey Day Minnesota” with Mac was something he still loved talking about.
A gifted water-skier and Kwahamot alumni, Brandan spent many summers on the water with family and friends. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing, and riding snowmobiles and four-wheelers at his Uncle Tony’s and Aunt LouAnn’s with all of his cousins. He also enjoyed gaming; a big highlight for Brandan was attending X-Games with Noah in Minneapolis. Brandan looked forward to annual vacations on Manson Lake with his family and spending quality time with his younger cousins. Whether it was teaching his nephew, Kaysn, how to skate or going to the Mall of America with his cousin, Maddy, Brandan simply loved hanging out with kids and they loved him in return. Brandan’s passion was firefighting and his hope was to become a member of the Tomahawk Fire Department soon. He was an amazing person who adored his family, was willing to lend a helping hand wherever needed, and was truly put on this earth to make others smile.
Survivors include his parents, Mike and Stacey Biever; his sister, Hannah (Andrew) Ahrendts; his niece, Kinsleigh; his three nephews, Kaysn, Kashton, and Kwyntin Ahrendts; his grandparents, Amelia Beiler, Girard Roberge, Michael Biever, Sr., and Phylis Biever. He is further survived by his aunts, uncles, cousins, and many other family members and friends.
He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, John and Helen Beiler, Ruth Musch, Vincent and Patricia Biever, Roger and Muriel Michaelson; great-uncles, Tony Beiler, Phil Beiler, John Beiler, Andy Beiler, Garth Roberge, and Christopher Biever; great-aunt, Helene; and cousin, Jason Beiler.
