It pains me to have the need to create this campaign for a good friend and co-worker. I looked forward to thanking him with a Christmas gift for being as helpful and supportive as he was while I learned a new job. Brandon was a caring and hard-working young man that made anyone feel that they were welcome. He was only 25 years old. In the early morning of November 27, Brandon was hit by a car while walking within less than a mile from his home. The driver failed to stop and left Brandon alone on the road. Brandon was killed due to ignorance and now leaves behind a loving family. The reason I am setting up this campaign is so that I can give his father, who also works with me and has been a great, supportive person to work with, the financial means to give Brandon a proper burial and help with other costs. I only wish I could have thanked Brandon for making my job so much easier.

My name is Stephen Keller from Monaca, PA.  I am a co-worker of Brandon and his father.  I will ensure that the funds donated will be used for funeral and burial expenses for Brandon.  I will withdraw the funds and write a check directly to Noll Funeral Home in Beaver, PA.  The check will be made out in the full amount of the donated proceeds after all of GoFundMe fee's have been deducted.  The funeral home will then take what is needed to cover expenses and disburse any remaining amount to Brandon's father, Ralph Bixler.   Detailed records will be kept of the donated proceeds, the donors, the deposit from WePay (Gofundme), payment to the funeral home, etc.

I wanted to update everyone on the status of this campaign. The money has been withdrawn from gofundme and given directly to Noll Funeral Home. Thank you to everyone who donated to assist in covering Brandon's funeral and burial. Your generosity and caring is a reflection of the kind of people that Brandon has in his family and those with who he chose as friends. I also thank those who did not know Brandon personally but donated to show their support. I know that those closest to Brandon and those that only recently met him will never forget him. I ask that his community also not forget him and continue to assist in bringing answers and closure to his family. Thank you.
