He returned to Wortham after suffering from heart failure in 2014. He spent the remainder of his life caring for his mother.
Brandon’s pride and joy was his son, Gavin. He was incredibly proud to be his father. He loved him more than anything. Although there was distance between them, Brandon’s love and adoration for Gavin never lessened. His goal was to move back to Arkansas to be with him again. Unfortunately, due to his declining health, his wish never came to pass.
Brandon was one of the sweetest and gentlest souls you’d ever meet. He loved deeply and always tried to make you laugh. He loved to play practical jokes and tried to find the humor in everything. No matter what life threw at Brandon, he always had a smile on his face. His kindness was genuine and he had compassionate, generous, and good heart.
He loved to read, write down recipes, go shooting, sing karaoke, and play games. One of his favorite things to do was go to the family cabin. He enjoyed the remote location and the peace and quiet he found there. Brandon lived in the 90s and never left. He was absolutely the definition of a 90s guy. He loved the style, music, and movies. He loved Stephen King books. He liked watching his favorite movies The Lost Boys, The Goonies, Spaceballs, and Total Recall. Brandon’s absolute favorite holiday was Halloween. He would plan elaborate costumes and couldn’t wait to dress up. The family tradition of “NewThanksMas” was also something he looked forward to every year. He could not wait to karaoke his favorite Green Day songs; his #1 request was always “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”
