Dewayne Vance Brandom

Dewayne “Vance” Brandom, 71, died peacefully in his sleep at home on Saturday, May 9, 2020. He was born on October 21, 1948 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Charles Willard and Anna Bell (Tenbrook) Brandom. He is preceded in death by his sister, Beverlea Ann Brandom, and his parents. He was the beloved brother of Garlan (Lisa) Brandom of Little Rock, Arkansas. He married his one and only, Leslie “Jan” (Trout) Brandom, on June 11, 1983. Together they had two perfect daughters, Erin Elizabeth (Matthew) Groves of Whitewater and Kelli Suzanne Brandom of Wichita. He was adored by his five grandchildren, Ryann, Sadie, Sophie, John, and Jack and, oh, did he love them. He had a love for nature, especially the San Juan Mountains in Colorado and all of the National Parks. He was selfless and wonderful, fearless and hilarious, loving and kind. He was everything a husband, father, and grandfather should be.

I liked sitting on the back porch with him and Jan and just talking. Vance had one of those unique laughs and personality that I enjoyed being around. I am so happy to have had holiday dinners with the whole family, the love that I receive from them is such gift and appreciated. I will miss you Vance.

I just remember how funny and loving he was. I never saw him in a bad mood and his smirk of a smile was the best! Thinking of you girls and all of the grandkids. Love you endlessly!

So sorry for your loss. Many fond memories with Vance as he was always around helping Dad with harvest, or cutting fire wood, or whatever on the farm when I was a kid, and was still there to help me and my sisters after dad was gone. They were lifelong friends. Weve enjoyed taking our daughter out to the San Juans to visit some of the places and trails Vance used to talk about.

Jan and family. We are thinking of you and praying for all of you. So very sorry for your loss. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow.
