Brennan Matthew Stillson

2008 - 2021


Brennan Matthew Stillson, 12, passed away unexpectedly on March 29, 2021.  Born November 30, 2008 in Littleton, NH to Matthew Stillson and Stefanie Williams, Brennan was a sixth grader at the Danville School.

Brennan loved hunting and fishing with his Papa and Nana, Donald and Lorraine Williams, spending time with his Aunt, Anita Williger, and cousins Audrey and Ava Williger, whom he was very close with. Some of his favorite things to do were playing basketball with his brother Aiden, jumping on their trampoline, going camping and playing Xbox.  Brennan’s favorite holiday was Thanksgiving because he could spend time with his family and have a turkey dinner, which was his favorite.  Every Friday during the summer, Brennan and Aiden would go with his Papa & Nana to Riley’s to get a chocolate shake, another favorite thing of his.

Brennan loved helping people and was a compassionate and caring soul.  He was a really good friend who looked out for others. When asked to help, whether it be stacking wood or holding the door for others, he did so willingly and without hesitation. Brennan really cared about the world around him and he is everything this world should be. 

Brennan is survived by his loving parents: Matthew Stillson  of  Danville and Stefanie Williams of St. Johnsbury; brothers: Aiden Stillson of St. Johnsbury, Nick and Cole Stillson of Lyndonville, Nathaniel and Jared Stillson of Schenectady, NY; sisters: Makaela Stillson of Lyndonville and Anastasia Stillson of Woodsville, NH; maternal grandparents: Donald and Lorraine Williams of Waterford and paternal grandmother:  Catherine Smith of Winooski; Aunts and Uncles: Anita Williger of South Burlington, Brett Williger of Williston, Connie Webster of NC, Dan Webster of FL; cousins: Audrey and Ava Williger, Jennifer Hunt of Barre, Philip Keogh of Barre; as well as additional family members on his paternal and maternal side. 

A private service will be held for immediate family only due to COVID-19 on Tuesday, April 6th.  A Celebration of Brennan’s life will be held at a later date to be determined.

Donations can be made to Kingdom Animal Shelter in memory of Brennan as he loved animals, both cats and dogs.

Offering my deepest sympathy and condolences to Brennan's family, friends, and community.   May your loving memories of Brennan and the support of those around you, comfort you and help to ease your pain  during this difficult time.  I will miss Brennan dearly.  I will always cherish our time together and the fun we had in "OT". My favorite memory was how much he loved to balance the cup of water on his back when we would do a plank.  He never dropped it and held strong!  Brennan was a sweet, sweet boy with a heart and soul filled with kindness, compassion, and warmth.  May you rest in peace Brennan.
