Brandon was a graduate of Rockford High School before attending Grand Valley State University to pursue a degree in Nursing. His compassion for and drive to help others in need led him to return to Grand Canyon University where he achieved his Master of Science of Nursing and Master of Business Administration degrees. This would lead him to Houston where he served as a Director within Houston Methodist Hospital. He was very proud of his accomplishments in his professional career, but he was prouder of his family life. A hardworking, loving and gracious husband, Brandon was a devoted, fun-loving father that cherished spending time with Caden, Tate and Kinley. He was a caring and compassionate son, a protective brother and the most playful and generous uncle that any niece or nephew could ask for. Brandon was an avid golfer and always ready to take new challenges and adventures head on. He will forever be remembered for his strong work ethic, his need to put others’ interest first and his friendly and caring nature. Brandon will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
