One of the smartest and funniest people I have ever had the pleasure to know, Brandon was for sure one of my favorite people on earth. He never failed to impress me with his extensive knowledge of pretty much any subject we talked about. His interests in so many different areas made it so you could talk about literally anything with him. He was always seeking the truth, and, by my estimation, always tried to do the right thing. I’ve never known someone who had a problem with Brandon, he was just as easy going as anyone you’ve ever met. He will be deeply missed by anyone who has ever been lucky enough to feel that child-like glow, or see that witty, yet cheesy grin he wore so often. If you are one of those aforementioned people, my deepest condolences go out to you.

As Grandparents, we are again grieving the loss of another Grandchild at an early age in their lives. However, our grief does not compare to that which his parents, Don and Chris have to be experiencing. It will take them many years, if ever, to get over this loss of a child who they reared throughout their early years into being a young adult.
Brandon took an interest in many things as his hobbies and collections showed. He will be missed by his friends and all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Our heartfelt sorrow and deepest symphony go out to Don, Chris, Curtis and the rest of the family who are dealing with this loss.
