Brandon was a young man of great strength and character, always willing to help others, and never wanting to see someone down or left out. He would always go out of his way to put a smile on their face. He loved children, the outdoors, fixing things, and dogs. He had the craziest laugh, the most beautiful eyes, and an infectious smile.

A loyal man, Brandon gave his best to his family, friends, and his work. “We will always treasure the twenty-four years we were blessed with his friendship and love. Now he is heaven’s treasure. We are very proud of him,” recalled his mother, Holly Smith.
