Clarence Joseph “Joe” Bremner was born in November 18, 1956 in Browning, Montana to Clarence Henry Bremner & Yvonne Marie Kuka-Bremner. He joined Big Sister Delia Kittson and Little Sister Crystal Marie Bremner followed in 1971. Joe graduated from Browning High School in 1975 and went on to attend Haskell Junior College in Lawrence Kansas for one year of college but college was not for Joe, he was eager to get out in the world and make an impact. Joe had the Entrepreneurial Spirit from a very young age, beginning with delivering GRIT Newspaper at age ten and continuing throughout his life to always be looking for the next business opportunity.


Upon returning home Joe went to work at the Palomino for Red Harper, that is where he was awakened his business mind and began to sharpen his skills in finances. He had a mind that could calculate figures, do projections and helped many people her on the Reservation and elsewhere complete Excellent Business Plans that you could take to the bank! Joe was a man who worked many occupations throughout his life, CDL Instuctor, Bartender, RoughNeck Driller in Montana/Wyoming, and Envromential Driller in Southern California for Primer Drilling but his love was Business and he entered into sale in Southern California for The United Safety Associates, successfully becoming the top sales person for his company in Southern California.


Joe and Rose followed United Safety Associates to Denver Colorado, before branching off and moving home to Montana to begin their own business in home sales while managing Dairy Gold for Terry and Judy Smith. It was during this time that the Dollar Stores were taking off everywhere, Joe, Rose and his aunt Susie went to the bank for help and began The Varitey Dollar Store in Browning, Montana. Joe’s intent was for Rose and his aunt Susie to run the dollar store and he was going to continue the home sales but was sucked into the successful business and the rest was history. Joe also developed time to the Four Times Foundation as a mentor for many individuals, who were beginning their own businesses. He worked closely with the SweetGrass Development doing the same and was a founding board member for Browning Community Development Corporation for the Town of Browning.


Joe became involved in Siyeh Development Corporation after being approached by Denis Fitzpatrick to be on the board of directors in the early 90’s, Joe served on the board with many good men. In 2014 Joe was hired as Project Manager for Siyeh and this position became his passion. He dedicated his time and energy working with all entities to help make these business projects a reality on the Blackfeet Reservation; Glacier Family Food, Glacier Family Gas Kiosk, Heart Butte Fuel Station, and most recently Siyeh Communications.


Joe was introducted to our cultural beliefs while married to Rose and he had a gift for learning the songs, where it took many months for the other to learn, Joe learned these songs and was called upon for his assistance at ceremonies. He belonged to the Thunder pipe bundle, Beaver Bundle and was holder of the Nah-Too-Was Bundle, sitting holy twice and becoming an Okan Man which was an honor he held near to his heart.


In between Joe did have a personal life, he met Verda BullShields and from this union was born Jaden LaRae Bremner in 1986, he met Rose Bullshoe in 1988 and in this union she brought Autumn Melodie Nelson who Joe raised his own. In 1966 Joseph Neal Bremner completed this family union, he was the conduit that made this family solid for his short twenty years on this earth bringing joy happiness to his family and friends.

All the while Joe was out and about on the Reservation and making things happen, Joe battled his health issues and never ever gave up, his work ethic was impraccable rain, snow, shine or feeling sick he went to work! He worked until it was impossible to continue and he will be missed by all his collegues, many friends and for most all his family, but joe is yearned to be as his health declined and grew tired, he is with his baby boy Joseph Neal Bremner. Joe is preceded in death by his parents Clarence and Yvonne Bremner and his beloved son Joseph. Survived by his wife Rose Bremner, daughter Autumn Nelson, Son Jaden Bremner, Grandchildren Meadow Blackweasel, Braylon Bremner, sisters Delia Kittson and Crystal Bremner.
