He was kind, gentle, funny, quirky and a beautiful human being. And a diehard Eminem fan.
On Saturday, December 2nd, Brandon was brutally murdered in Anchorage, Alaska.
He was beaten, strangled, shot and left on the street for dead.
Our family is totally shattered beyond comprehension.
We need to be together.
Some of the immediate family is stationed at Hickman Air Force Base in Hawaii, and we are trying to raise $5,850 to bring them home.
The funeral service is on December 20th at 2pm at St. Andrews Catholic Church in Eagle River, Alaska.
We are trying to get funding from the Violent Crimes Compensation Board to help us with the funeral expenses. Funeral expenses alone, are around $5000.
But they won’t help with travel expenses to the funeral. Air fares are at their highest rate because it is peak holiday season.
We deeply appreciate anything you can give. Words cannot express our gratitude for your kindness and generosity.
The thought of our family not being together during this painful time is unbearable.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and for the caring words you’ve expressed to our family during this very difficult time.
Please free to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
For those of you who are able, the family would be honored to have you join us on the 20th for the service to celebrate Brandon's life.
