umm...i think you meant to say bitter person. you obviously dont know what youre saying if you can't even spell. my mom was best friends with terrie brenner, michael's wife. she was an amazing person and everyone who knew her, knew she could always put a smile on their face. I also grew up with charlie and sarah, their children. when terrie died it came as such a shock to us all she was 35 years old and died of a heart attack. everyone in the neighborhood felt the pain of her loss, so he does know what that pain is like. and you have no right to judge his family or his children. do you know what its like losing a mom when youre 8 and 10 years old. do you know what its like going to that funeral seeing her 8 year old daughter talk to her mothers body in the coffin? no. i do. you know nothing. you dont know whats its like in those kids shoes and for you to judge them like that is some bull shit. it was chads time to go because god made that happen for a reason. we know the pain and sadness and so does michael brenner. so next time you have something to say like that crap. keep it to yourself. thanks.

9 Months after a innocent Young MAN was KILLED By a DRUNK DRIVER, The pain is still unbearable the tears still fall the anger still irrupts and the question of WHY never seems to lesson.
People say that everything Happens for a reason,
But Explain to a Mother and a Father a Sister and his entire Family and Friends how does ONE forgive, How does one's LIFE Go ON,without our BEAUTIFUL CHAD?

no charlie & sarah should not have to pay for their "dads" sins, but he needs to pay! it is a fact this man has for years has been getting away with drunk driving & he knows all the tricks too, isn't it time for him to pay for his sins NOT HIS KIDS his total disregard for the well being of his own kids by drinking & driving shows just how guilty he is in the death of CHAD he should plead guilty & serve his time in jail for the death of CHAD & the death of his kids childhood. BUT I GUESS HE NOT MAN ENOUGH TO FACE THE TRUTH

this is the most horrifying way to lose someone you love & to realize this person is gone from your life forever, you'll never see his handsome face again. you think you see in others the way he walked, the way he talked, his imagination, his creativity, his love that shown in his whole face. but you don't for he's not here. you remember all the special times shared, BUT this is like shreds of glass in your heart & mind. michael brenner should be held accountable for CHADS death so he can't ever hurt this many people again. he should own up to what he did & not hide behind i have a disease (a disease that is treatable)or i lost my wife. this alcoholic has had years & years to get his drinking under control he has DUI's that go back 10 years before his wifes death. he needs to go to jail & lose his drivers lisence for ever, his HISTORY proves this. to let him have the right to drive is like giving a monkey a loaded gun (no ones safe) this was no ACCIDENT this was a CHOICE. michael brenner made a CHOICE TO DRIVE DRUNK. CHAD DID NOT.

To Son. I knew your dad from a previous employment. Obviously he made some horrible choices and it changed many lives and caused incredible pain for many people including you and your sister. Pleae remember as this all continues to unfold that you two kids did NOTHING wrong - no matter what you read. I have prayed for Chad, his family and all who have been hurt. My prayer for you and your sister is that you find your way as you both have your own lives to live. This is for your dad to own, not you kids. Please think about what you both want to do with your lives and concentrate on becoming the best you can be. Please try to not carry this burden with you as you both grow up - it is only your dad's to carry. God Bless you and all who hurt from this.

Thank you for your post to his kids. You are too kind to say, but for the record, Michael Brennar was a drunk long before his wife passed away. Now, Chad, Chad's family and Michael's children are victims. He needs to be held accountable, but please don't blame his children, they don't want him drinking either. His entire family is devastated and saddened by the loss of Chad.

Driver pleads guilty in death By: Bill Beaver County Times
Thursday November 11, 2010 10:05 AM
PITTSBURGH — A Moon Township man facing trial in Pittsburgh this week pleaded guilty Wednesday morning to vehicular homicide and drunken driving in the 2009 death of a Air National Guardsman from Baden, according to the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office.
Michael Brenner, 46, of 300 Skylark Drive was scheduled to begin a nonjury trial this week before Judge Donald Machen, according to county court documents, but instead accepted responsibility for the death of 23-year-old Chad Mottiqua on Dec. 9, 2009, on Flaugherty Run Road.
Brenner also pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide while under the influence of alcohol and involuntary manslaughter, according to court records.
The mandatory sentence for vehicular homicide while under the influence is three years in Pennsylvania, according to the district attorney’s office, but sentencing was delayed until Dec. 21 so that Brenner, whose wife has died, could make arrangements for two children.
Advertisement William Mottiqua of Baden, Chad’s father, said the family was relieved to find a trial would be unnecessary.
“I didn’t want to put my wife and daughter through anything more, I didn’t want them to have to hear what my son went through,” Mottiqua said.“He died a horrible death.”
The crash occurred at 5:15 p.m. when Brenner’s car crossed the center line and collided head-on with Mottiqua’s car in the 500 block of Flaugherty Run. Mottiqua died at the scene. Brenner was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, where his blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.11 percent two hours after the crash, according to police reports.
there it is in black in white the Facts!
I Pray for the family the Mottiquas.
Son- not to happy

To all who insist on posting rude and unnecessary comments about my family for no reason. Do you do it to feel better? Or to bring Chad back? News flash it has almost been a year since the accident and we all still want to act like this. Im sure all who have posted on this site are ADULTS. From my perspective i am fifteen and act more mature than all of u selfless cowards who hide under your screen names. No Holidays im sure you know what it is like to be in prison. Or was that summary on the last episode of law and order u just watched on USA. My family is aware of what is going on and have arrangements to live with my fathers loving girlfriend who has been there for us since the day she walked into our family. So if u peaople feel that me and my sister will not have any where to go when my father is put away think again..... I can understand why you would hate my father but why would you post it on the internet. Once again i hope you are all hapy and "feel better" now that you have posted your hatred toward my father. So if you still want to make rude comments toward my father ask (the true facts) who posted my adress,where i live and come expressy your feelings if you have any to my face if you dare....or live under hidden screen names and attempt to feel remorse for your loss by being extremely rude and inconsiderate toward anyone elses feeling thank you for reading.
No Holidays(who are you...)
