    Found memories of the Nash & Crash Catch Phrase nights. All of us had a blast and got along great.

    Love you,

    Brandon was good and kind. He always had the time to chat or say hello to the daycare kids. There was a lot of times I saw their interactions, and the love shared between him and Heather was obvious to all. He was a proud father and his eyes would light up when speaking about his children. He was a gentle soul called back home but we were lucky to know you while you were here. Rest in peace and may God bless your loved ones who are missing you.

    My heart goes out to Brandon’s family, friends, loved ones. He left a big mark in our lives. I will forever treasure his friendship and admire his drive. Whenever he talked about Heather, he would always say he had an awesome girlfriend, he was happy and proud. His kids were his life, he was the best father anyone could ask for. To me, he was Scrapito. A brother I could always count on and gone far too soon. It will take all of us a long time to accept this, but we can find comfort knowing he is no longer in pain and one day, we shall meet again. Rest in Peace Brandon, I love you brother.

    Heather, I could tell how much you and Brandon loved one another just you two being in around others presence. You have an entire family that loves you and Ava and want to remember how great Brandon is. We will see you on Saturday!

    I worked with Brandon everyday. His quick smile and positive attitude made work so much better. I could tell he loved going home to his family and talked of them often. He was definitely a mover, when he came to his work ethic. But most of all I miss his genuine warm smile. He will be missed everyday. God Bless Brandon and his family.

    My US Army Armourer. Won’t and can’t forget such an outstanding Soldier! Not only was he an outstanding co-worker, but he was also known as being a funny father, crazy friend and just a loving person! This bro, my bro will be terribly missed!

    I worked with Brandon and would see him every morning I’d stop by the shop and he was always working hard and smiling and playing good music . Brandon was friendly and I enjoyed many conversations and catching up with him anytime I’d make a trip over there . I only knew him a short while but feel blessed to have known him and always looked forward to seeing him. Brandon you are loved will be missed by so many . Love you brother!

    I am so sorry for the loss of such an awesome person. Brandon was a Soldier of Soldiers. He was a natural leader and did it effortlessly. Brandon’s personality was addicting and people just wanted to be around him. He was a loving person towards his friends and loved ones. He will truly be missed. Rest in Heaven Brandon.
