Brandon had such a loving compassionate heart. Everyone he met became an instant friend. His passions in life were Hunting, Hanging out with family and friends, riding bulls, and restoring his truck with his Dad. He was a member of Red River Cowboy Church. Brandon’s disability empowered him to help others. He became the north Louisiana representative for Trinity Outdoors Disabled Adventures, a mission that is there to share the word of God through the outdoors. He loved hunting and the outdoors so much that he began Out the Boot Outdoors which allowed him to film outdoor hunts and adventures.
