It is with deep sadness that we share the news of Ace Brandt’s passing, owner of USHL’s Fargo Force in Fargo, ND. He courageously fought his battle with cancer for several months, but unfortunately succumbed to the disease October 16, 2021.

Ace founded Brandt Holdings Co. in December, 1992 with modest business holdings. His strong entrepreneurial spirit, energy and drive for growth propelled the company into what it is today. Ace always credited the employees when he was complemented by business people over the years. “I’ve surrounded myself with the very best people”, was a common response. Despite his business success, Ace remained a humble leader that empowered and trusted his employees.

After learning of his diagnosis, Ace continued to maintain his positive outlook and attitude. Through his strength, will, and unmatched determination, he was committed to ensure that plans were in place to perpetuate his businesses.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Ace’s family.
