So sad when a young person dies. Your child or grandchild. Thinking of you and your family.
My beautiful Braydon
Hey Braydons family, Braydon was my best friend but I considered him a brother. I first really talked to Braydon my freshman year summer going into sophomore year. We cracked jokes with each other and picked on each other for awhile the first time we met, and from that minute on I knew he was a good one. After that freshman summer we became best friends, Braydon helped me through a lot of the worst parts of my life and I will forever cherish that. I am so sorry for all of you. My one goal is to be half of the man Braydon was. I am here for all of you. -Love Lief
I met Braydon playing Xbox when we were probably 14. I can honestly say that growing up playing together and then meeting in person two years ago with our other friends was one of the best memories I have ever had. Doing it again this last year was even more fun and I absolutely will never forget the fun times we had. Braydon was truly a best friend and I wouldn’t have traded that for anything in this world. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers have your family in mind.
So sorry to hear of his passing!! Thoughts & Prayers to his Family & Friends!!
I swear, it didn't matter what day it was, or how busy it got, but working at sports page was a little bit easier when he was around 🖤 Rest in Peace, my friend. I'll miss seeing your smile
I am so very sorry for your loss. I had only met Braydon a few times but he was always smiling and so polite. May God watch over you all. Julie Spillman
I am a Friend of Melissa McCulloch I am so sorry for the loss of Your Son May He Rest in Peace
Hi Brayden's Family.
I was lucky enough to be able to work with Brayden last summer in Brit Iowa. Throughout our time working together he always had a positive mindset and he was a hard worker. I remember our early mornings together meeting at Woodruff Construction and working long 10 hour days and our pleasant drives home talking about life, free-styling or just enjoying music together. he was a good soul. I do remember this one time when we were on lunch and one of our co-workers forgot to bring lunch and didn't bring money or anything to eat, I selfishly didn't think anything of it, but Brayden helped him out, paid for his lunch and didn't think twice of it, if I remember correctly, he let him get whatever he wanted. I wasn't super close with Brayden but the time I did spend with him was very enjoyable. He will be missed. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
