It was a real joy whenever I observed Mr. Brandon's Kinder class. He and the children were always doing things. He was a firm yet fair teacher and I watched my son grow both educationally and ethically during the year. Mr. Brandon you have touched so many lives and will be missed a great deal. I am so glad you taught my son.

Gene Brandon was an absolute blessing. I student taught with him in Kindergarten two years ago. He taught me so much about how to care for students, how to better yourself as a teacher, and how to take a critical glance at the world around you. He was humorous, witty and compassionate. I am truly blessed to have known this man. I wish his family the absolute best as they endure this hardship.
