Brandon enjoyed watching sports. His favorite football team was the Washington Football Team. His favorite basketball team was the Minnesota Timberwolves, because his favorite player “Kevin Garnett” played for them. He also enjoyed playing sports and met many friends while enjoying the love of the game. He loved cars, especially fast cars, and playing video games. Brandon’s tennis shoes, his favorite pair were the Nike Foams. Being with his family was always a good time for him. He was everybody’s “Good Guy,” and he never judged, only supported his family and friends. He loved joking around and laughing if you ever heard him laugh you would laugh too.
Brandon started his working career at Harborside Nursing Home in the Dietary Unit. From there he went to the U.S. Postal Service at the Lyndhurst/Mayfield station. Being the friendly person he was, he made many friends along his route as well as his co-workers at the station.

Brandon had a host of cousins who he was raised with like sisters and brothers. Even though he had his own siblings, Brian, Byron and Brandi. They enjoyed each other at family functions and “just because” events. Brandon had a sensitive, quiet but strong personality with an infectious smile, a smile we will always see in B.J and Brooklynn.
