Along with many cousins, aunts and uncles that will miss him dearly. He was preceded in death by his loving father, James Bruce Holder and his grandparents.
Brandon was loved by everyone he met. He was a wonderful father,husband, son and brother. He took great pride in being a great Dad (Dada). He was a very hands on dad, from coaching Connor’s Tball team to dancing with Chloe, he did it all.
Brandon always said his greatest accomplishment would be who he raised. His biggest dream was to be a dad.
He worked for Landfall COA from 2001-2021. He took pride in his work and everyone that knew him knew he looked at his coworkers as family, and they did him as well. Brandon was pure of heart and taken from us too soon. Brandon loved Duke Basketball, Carolina Panthers, and the Atlanta Braves. Brandon never missed a game, just ask his wife!
