Tragically on May 29, 2021, Braedan Raleigh lost his life in an airplane accident. He was life flighted to the nearest burn center in attempt to save his life. He was covered in 3rd degree burns over 95% of his body. In route he lost his pulse and CPR was done for 20 mins before his heart started beating again. He was sedated & intubated, then sent to the burn ICU. Due to the severity of his burns and unstable vitals he was not able to live for more than a few hours once in the ICU. He was surrounded by his loved ones and we’re fortunate enough to have been able to say our goodbyes.
Braedan was only 21 years old. He was an amazing son, brother, grandson, and uncle. He had a lifetime still to live. He was so full of life. He was kind, loving, funny, selfless, motivated and was just kick starting his career off as a young pilot while going to school full time to get his Bachelors.
No one was prepared for his life to be taken away so early and unexpectedly. We want to raise funds to help pay for expenses. We are going to miss you Brae. Fly high buddy.
