Those who knew Brandon, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. He certainly was one of a kind. Brandon unquestionably loved music. His guitar was always nearby and when he picked it up to play he would capture the hearts of his audience.
He treasured his family. The love he had for his Nana, Papa, brothers, and sisters, and his children was strong and unbreakable. He never missed a chance to tell you about them, even though he could not be with them physically.
Brandon’s momma was his best friend, he never missed the opportunity to help her cook in the kitchen, raid the refrigerator at midnight, and to always have a cup of coffee in the morning with her whenever he could.
Brandon loved the Lord. One of his most joyous moments was the day he was baptized. He traveled quite a bit, but he would always find a church wherever he was.
During his younger years, you would find Brandon cheering on the Atlanta Braves, but as he got older he found a passion for the Dallas Cowboys.
He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Jerry Mays and his grandmother, Shirley Hughes.
