Brandon was intelligent, caring, passionate, and hilarious. He was quiet but he always caught you unexpectedly with a great comeback or one liner. He was insightful and read people well. His sensitive nature made it easy to get along with him. He accepted everybody – it didn’t matter if they were white, black, gay, straight, skinny, or fat.
He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Whenever his mom had a nice dinner or gathering for her friends, he always helped and interacted with the group. Brandon and his sister Crystal always goofed around and had fun together. He always looked forward to summer vacation with his grandparents and was fortunate enough to visit a lot of the United States.
