Brandon your memory truly lives on ...you truly are years ahead of your time both mentality ...and musically ..and the fact that you were able to touch so many lives in 19 years on this earth is just transcendent in itself ...Your family was such a blessing for mine when we needed it... When your father would pick up my brothers off to pop warner football practice along with you ..you guys never asked for gas money and always declined the money when we would offer it ..just shows the character your parents would pass on to you ...my only regret is that I was much older then you playing varsity football and didn't get to see you as often as you did my little brothers ...but every interaction I had with you was always a positive one ...keep shining your light on us Brandon ..and thank you for touching so many people lives ..until I see you again young brother keep shining and keep smiling for us over here -Your Sayrevile Neighbor Forever And Always Kev
Brandon was and still is a good friend since elementary school days, we usually did not see eye to eye on alot of things but at end of the day it was always filled with laughter. We shared alot of great moments together, one of my favorite memories were when myself, Zack Everson and Brandon decided to join together and create our first band our Sophomore year of High School. We preformed our first song "Rasta" at Brandon's house during his families BBQ, at first we were nervous as hell but Brandon's nonchalant attitude kept us cool enough to perform. Although Brandon is not longer here physically his spirit still lives within our memories, within Strategic Combat Academy, and most importantly within our hearts. As long as we keep the memories of Brandon alive, he shall live too.
I have a lot of memories with Brandon. Memories that I will never forget. Whether it be CCD class and Brandon getting yelled at for leaning his chair back and messing with the teacher or all the classes we had in high school together. He made me laugh constantly in each of those classes. I loved how me, him and Zack would go to this one pizzeria to get Jones soda when I picked them up to bring them to something for their band. Those car rides were always fun. Brandon would tell me I drive like a Grandma and hate on my music. When he would put his music on he would jam out in the back of my car even using his drumsticks on my console. He would scream the songs so loud. I'll always remember that one song: Pressure by Paramore. He went hard to that song. He showed me so many Kid Cudi songs, which I love now. Another great memory is when Zack and I went on a double date bowling with one of my friends and him. He was so funny and made it so fun. The song he sang in Cassie's car at the top of his lungs and knew every word, I'll never forget that night. My all time favorite memory though has to be when he worked at Nordstrom's and I work at Macy's and he told my sister that he wanted me to go to Nordstrom's to see him. I made my way over there and he gave me a huge hug. We caught up and he was just so sweet. He always loved to help me pick out gifts for Zack. He was always so helpful and had such good ideas. I could always count on him. He was one of a kind. Love you so much Brandon and miss you so much. He has been heavily on my mind. I'll forever hold onto all our memories.
I remember the first time me and him hung out. We were initially in a band and our mutual friend/band mate couldn't make it so we just talked and got to know one another. Really got to see what Brandon was about. Got to know his favorite color, his love for movies and art. We talked football and Lord of the rings. It was so unique to find someone with so much in common. Loved the same classic rock bands and rap and he really made an impression on me because I met someone just as or even more dedicated to music. All we did was laugh and he truly left a mark on my life. I miss you Brandon.
Brandon and I were in a music video together while attending SAE together. We had the greatest times laughing with all of our friends at SAE, freestyles, and even working on music together was special. Brandon was a very talented person and I'm gonna miss him a lot just wish I had one more moment to thank him for being a great, supportive friend. Every time I watch that music video I just remember the person he was .... Always smiling
Brandon was one of the most ambitious people I knew. Every moment with him was memorable. He always treated me like family and will never be forgotten.
Brandon's positive attitude and uplifting personality were a catalyst to any mood within its proximity. Brandon's welcoming personality and warm smile were strong enough to make everyone feel comfortable.
Such a beautiful soul gone too soon. I will always remember Brandon for his bright light and good nature. He was a person with integrity. His positivity and smile would always light up the room. People were touched by his love, effort, persistency and passion for life and what he loved most...his family and his music. There is no doubt in my mind, that if there were more people like Brandon in this world, it would be an infinitely better place.
My bestfriend, brody, been through alot together and have had some of the best memories together, Brandon has shown me that there is actually people out there that are honest and have respect for others whether he knew them or not, he was the only person i trusted to tell things i haven't told anyone else. We used to sit in the car or in my room jaming out to all the old classics and it'd be just me and him cause no one else would love it or be so into it the way we were. People respected Brandon because of the way he treated people and the good vibes he brang to the room but he also made sure people knew he would also ride for his friends and that being said he would not let anyone talk behind anyones back, he simply would not let himself be around people like that. Brandon's always real to me and would always tell me everything straight forward, i feel bad for the ones that haven't met Brandon before because for the ones that have met him he has changed there lives in a way that is unforgettable and really he is a blessing, he has opened my mind and made me realize so much more, Brandon is always on my mind everyday and always will be forever missed, my brother, love you Brando
My favorite memory starts when Brandon was just about 4 months old. He is one of the most beautiful babies I had ever seen. I would buy him sneakers or a new outfit whenever I could. Sometimes I would dress him up and walk him in the stroller and pretend he was mine. Sit at the park with him and be showered with compliments of just how adorable he is,, and how well behaved. From that very young age he never had to scream or cry for attention , he is someone people want to be near even if he was not making any noise at all. He and I have a bond that not even this world can take. Every time we are together he hugged me or put his arm around me , play fight , anything to let each other know how much we love each other. Brandon is one of the most caring , non judgemental, handsome , and talented people who will ever walk this earth beside us. His music brings tears to my eyes , joy to my heart , and gets me up out of my chair. His music makes you feel creative and even on a bad day let's you see there is still hope. Your hugs are heaven ,, your smile is brighter than time square ,, your heart is one of acceptance and love ,, your drive and passion makes many strive to work harder. And last but not least the feeling I felt ,,when I was with you .....love ,, acceptance ,, fun and laughter ,, like this world is a much better place ,, safe. THANK YOU FOR BEING ONE OF THE GREATEST INDIVIDUALS I WILL EVER LIVE TO KNOW , I am so privileged to have such a remarkable young man to call my kid brother.
I miss you,homie. I really respected the drive and passion you had for your craft. You always spoke your mind and didn't hold back with your constructive criticism to help others grow. Every time we ran into each other, it was always all love and I will never forget it . R.I.P. Brother..... MARLON BLEU FOREVER!!!
Knew Brandon since 6th grade in middle school, we both had band class together and we been cool with eachother ever since. The first thing that comes to my mind if i had to describe him is humorous. We just be talking in the back of the classroom or outside and he had our whole group laughing the whole period. That was one thing i looked forward to everyday because i knew i was gonna enjoy class that day and the rest of the days to come that year. Nothing but good and positive energy from him. He is most definitely missed alot everyday. Brandon im glad i got to meet and become friends with you years ago, the memories will live forever. R.I.P??
Brandon's passion for music and his hard work ethic inspires me everyday to work hard for my goals, just like him. We miss and love you Brandon, always
Brandon and I have been friends for many years. Every memory I think of with him puts a smile on my face. He never fails to make me laugh and smile and every minute spent with him was a great time. Whether it be us playing soccer, taking a walk, kicking back in the pool singing along to kid cudi or talking about going to Brazil. When ever you call him up to do anything he will never say no. All he would say is "I'm down." He always had a smile on his face that assured you that everything was going to be okay. He was always there for his friends and family. One thing that really stood out about Brandon was his ambition. When he has his mind set on something, he will do it no matter what it takes. Wether it be with music, or learning another language, he was always determined to pursue his dream. I am truly grateful for going through so many great times with you brother. I love you. Until we meet again ?
Brandon, with a smile that lit up my classroom. It was a pleasure having you in class. My favorite of all times is when you volunteered to be the first to sing Feliz Navidad. Forever in my heart kid ?
I met Brandon for the first time in my first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class and I'll never forget it. I was nervous and didn't have any idea what I was doing but he helped me. He was kind and patient with me as he was showing me the ropes which I really appreciated because I probably would've quit if I didn't have a good first impression of BJJ. He's the kind of guy that everyone was always delighted to see when he entered a room. It's a shame that I won't get the chance to know him better like I wanted to but his absence showed me the kind of person he was by the people he touched around him. He will be missed but never forgotten.
I'll never forget having science class with Brandon. He made my freshman year of high school so much fun due to his fun personality. Everyday in class he would find a way to make someone laugh. The teacher couldn't help but laugh when Brandon would get introuble for talking but he was just so fun the second he thought of something important he had to share it with someone and it most likely was me because we sat next to each other ! The teacher couldn't keep a straight face half the time so it was kind of hard for him to be mad at Brandon. I wish I could relive that class just to spend those moments again with him. Going through high school together was so special and I wouldn't have it any other way. I am truly lucky to have met such a great person. MarlonBlueForever?
Brandon was always smiling, always in a positive mood every time I saw him. We would sit and have intelligent discussions about life, sports and general topics. To say that Brandon was a shining light is underselling his character. It didn't matter if I had a bad day, he always managed to turned it around when I saw him. I miss you my friend. You are an angel and I know you are in a better place with the other angels.
I have some fond memories of you brother. I remember meeting Brandon at strategic, he taught me that if I didn't put in maximum effort into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, I would not survive against him! Since that first day, he treated me like a member of his family and I still very much appreciate it. I will never forget that time that I punched him in the neck at pacsun because he was annoying me. I watched his face turn beat red and thought "it's about to go down", but Brandon did nothing, we didn't continue to hit each other. Later on that night, I asked him to refrain from hitting me outside of the gym because I wouldn't want us to get into a fight. I will never forget the words he said to me after that. "We'll never fight man, we're brothers." I love you Brando!
I first met Brandon at Strategic Academy and realized how he was caring and so relaxed. He always had a positive affect on me. I would never forget the time I told him that I was a barber, I didn't expect anything from him . He surprised me by showing me support by getting a haircut, next thing you know he became my customer. Every visit to my barbershop was a pleasant experience. We would have great conversations. The barbers got to know him quickly and enjoy his presence. We would laugh, have debates, talk about life, music and so forth, felt like every visit had a purpose. He was such a great person and loved by so many. His spirit will always be in my heart, my memories of Brandon will always give me a smile. Lover you brother, may you rest in peace.
