I will always Love U..I will never accept that u are gone!!
I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Brandon as a young adult. I did however, know him as a boy around the age of 10 years. If he grew to be anything like he was as a small boy, he had to be one heck of a man.
My deepest sympathy goes out to all that mourn this tremendous loss and may God ease your pain.
Our thoughts, hopes & positivity are with you through this difficult time. I am sure Brandon is off on his great adventure as he is an infinite soul who was having a human experience. He is forever and ever but never gone, just traveling on. With Love, Joe, Sheylla, Kai & Zoe Schulte
When I was growing up on Boyd Street a long long time ago, my favorite time of the year was always the summers.
That’s when my best friend Brandon Waugh would come down for 3 months and we would go hiking, camping, fishing, get into trouble… just doing normal summer outdoor things.
Video games weren’t online yet so if we played it would be some two player games.
I know as soon as the summer started I would be staring out the window waiting for him to be there… Brandon, and me shared a ton of first during those, from different music, to liking and competing over different girls, his dad ended up moving away during my teenage years and we kept in contact a bit, my 20s lost contact and recently in my 30s started up conversations about those summers.
As life keeps progressing, I think it’s becoming more important to me to just stay in the moment a bit and be happy with where I am at…
Thanks for being a good friend throughout all of those years.
I was absolutely shocked to learn of Brandon’s passing. My son, Matt, and him were the bestest of childhood friends. We only saw Brandon when he would come to Texas to visit his Dad but they were memories that will last a lifetime. Brandon, you were such a true blessing to be around. We will miss you!!!
May you rest in peace, sweetheart.
Brandon and I were very close. He was a very good person. Him And I always shared music. We both met Vally Hope. And we were hanging out together days before his passing. He called me and asked me for help and needed a place to stay do you get away from things. I took him under my wing like a little brother. We always laughed hard together. It just doesn’t seem real that this happened. To this day I still don’t know what happened. But his last text to me He said He just wanted to make sure I was OK and he told me I love you brother. He was a good person I always think of him and he’ll be in my heart. Love you brother
