My little Brother where to begin... All the stories I could tell. Most of them will have to remain with me since they are to crazy for most people to understand. One of my favorite memories with Brandon is when I talked him into swimming across the pond when it was the dead of winter. When I finally convinced him that it was a good idea we stripped down to our underwear and jumped in we only made it half way across before we were so cold that we couldn't hardly swim because we were hypothermic but i kept encouraging him to not give up cause we would of drowned so we powered through and made it to the other side we tried to run but our feet were so numb we had a hard time when we finally got to the house we thawed out in front of the wood stove I don't think that stove ever felt better.......I sure did love my little brother and will miss him we had a lot of great times together not only was he my only sibling but he was my best friend.

I worked with Brandon through Local 441, we car pooled together to out of town jobs and spent 12 hrs a day together for awhile. He was fun to be around, had a great sense of humor, but he really loved to talk about his son Wyatt and the things they did together . We went to the shooting range a few times and I got to know Brandon as a friend also, his love for his son and being a good father to Wyatt were some of the things that really stood out about him. I will miss him and will always cherish the time that I got to spend with him.

I have a ton of awesome memories with Brandon. In fact most of my stories from high school and trade school involve him. Unfortunately many would not be appropriate. One of my favorite stories about him was when he was chasing a raccoon in his truck and he ran in to hitch of a camper and smashed in the windshield. My parents owning a glass shop got him a decent deal on a new one and my dad always called him the coon hunter after that. I even found him a badge off of an older truck that was a camper special and he had it on his dash for a lot of years. I sure will miss him and almost cant believe he is gone. Life had grown us apart but anytime I ran into him we was just as good of friends as ever
