Throughout his many accomplishments Brandon always remained humble. Following his graduation Brandon began working for the State of Michigan as an auditor for the childcare division. Brandon was a huge sports fan; he could strike up a conversation about any sport with anyone. He enjoyed going to the gym and working out regularly. Brandon loved to travel and would often attend festivals with his friends. Anyone that knew Brandon would tell you how he was very supportive and always kept an open mind, and a listening ear. He was a proud cat dad to his two fur babies, Brayden and Braxton, who he played with as often as he could. Brandon was a very spiritual young man who lived with a great faith in God. Brandon’s kind and goofy nature made him easy to love. Friends and family meant the world to Brandon, he always made time for them, every week he made sure to have dinner with his grandma “Connie”.
