Brandon worked as an Assembler at Paladin Inc. and as of March 17th was resuming Computer classes there. He was a 1998 graduate of Michigan City H.S. and attended Ivy Tech majoring in Sports Communication. Brandon also broadcast for the Special Olympics and competed in basketball and bowling.
Brandon enjoyed sports, music, video games, wrestling, movies, good food, and spending time with his friends and family. In his own words on his FB bio, "I'm a nice guy that enjoy a good time with family and friends, love music and sports." He was an extremely positive person who could find the good in any situation; also a seriously devoted son, brother, boyfriend and uncle. Brandon continuously defied the odds, at birth physicians said he'd only live to the age of 10 and never walk, yet he walked, chase his sisters, ride bikes and shoot basketball. He led a full life and remained full of vigor right up until 9:12 p.m. Sunday, April 10th.
