In recent years, Brandon worked at Bethany Home in Minden.  Brandon had a compassionate heart and he truly enjoyed spending time with the residents, brightening their days.  Prior to working at Bethany Home, he enjoyed cooking at Breakaway.

From the time he was little, Brandon always loved sports.  Whether he was playing football, baseball, or golf or watching Liverpool F.C. soccer and Formula 1 racing, sports were a constant in his life.  He could tell anyone almost any sport fact they ever wanted to know.

In his spare time, Brandon enjoyed learning new languages.  He learned both Spanish and German on his own.  Brandon also enjoyed spending time and talking with his grandparents.  He was known to call his Grandma Dolly and talk for over an hour on a regular basis, often while wrapping silverware at Bethany Home.
