Brandon attended Cabarrus County Schools(Odell Elementary, Harris Road Middle and Cox Mill High School) where he enjoyed his schoolmates, teachers and specialists. When asked his favorite subject he would usually say lunch and this was true. He enjoyed listening to music with Elvis Presley, Wynonna and Praise music being his favorites. Harry Potter, Beyblades and Power Rangers were favorite activities and talking points.  Brandon was a strong believer in Jesus and was always ready to tell others about his faith. He was baptized on November 11, 2013 at Crossroads Church in Concord.  

Brandon had Juvenile Batten Disease but he didn’t let it define who he was, despite the devastating symptoms he experienced.  He had a tremendous sense of humor and laughed easily, loudly, and often.  Brandon had an extremely kind heart which was apparent to many who met him.
