He was born on 9 February 1893, in Hennepin, Minneapolis, the son of Luke Thomas and Emma Brennan (née Feiro). Brennan went to Academic College and studied law at the University of Montana, but left Law School before the completion of his freshman year in 1915.[1]

Brennan enlisted in the Royal Flying Corps on 19 July 1917, in New York. After undergoing training in Canada, he proceeded to England in December to join the RFC's 99th Squadron. On 28 February 1918, Brennan was killed when his aircraft 'went completely to pieces' while in the air at a height of 6,000 feet.[2]

He is buried in London Road Cemetery, Salisbury.
