Alexis Michael Brand passed away on Wednesday November 18, 2020. He attended St. Lawrence School, Burris High School, and Ball State University. He had worked at the family sheet metal business with his father. In recent years illness and injuries prevented continuing his career. He was passionate about playing his drums, making music with his friends and sitting around a bonfire with friends and relatives.

He is survived by his mother Lydia (Brian Brouillard) Smith, father Michael, step-mother Kathy, brother Julien (Natalie), nephew Henry, niece Sophie, stepdaughter, Amanda (Jeremy) Wilson, special nephew Jeremy Flores, aunt Marilyn Goldman, aunt Jenny Dick, cousin Jeffrey (Katya) Dick, aunt Kathy (John) Morris, cousin Lance (Lisa) Brand, cousin Scott Sears, companion Laura VanMatre, and his many friends.

He was preceded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents, Stepbrother John Lucas Smith, and uncles Stephen Dick and Dwayne Goldman. A memorial celebration of Alex's life will occur at a later date. Gifts to honor Alex may be sent to Go Fund Me at

This just seems so unreal, I'm so glad we talked not long ago, Jullian, Lydia, Mike and Kathy, I am so, so sorry, you are all in my thoughts and prayers, I don't have to tell you just how special and talented he was you already know. The amazing things he would create with metal, his love for music and his family and friends, he was a very special man and I will miss him dearly. Please keep me informed on services etc. And if there is anything I can do or anything any of you may need please let me know.

He was such a fun and loving guy. He watched me and Mandy grow up from elementary dances to having children. He was very fun to be around and loved to make you laugh. I'm so sorry for the families loss. He will be missed.
Love always Mandy's bestie
