Brandon’s funeral will be held Saturday, November 14th at 10:30 am. The service will be held at Timberline Church in Fort Collins Colorado. 2908 South Timberline Road.
Funeral is open to the public. All are welcome. You don’t have to dress up. Come as you are. Brandon would want it that way.
Following the funeral, a procession lead by police escort will drive Brandon’s body an hour north to Green Hill Cemetery in Laramie, Wyoming. We will bury Brandon at 2pm. All are welcome to attend.
After the funeral, we’ll be having a party celebrating the life of our amazing friend and brother. Party will take place at the Hilton Garden Inn Ballroom in Laramie, Wyoming from 4-10pm. All ages welcome to attend. Alcohol will be available, including 5 kegs, and there will also be a full bar at the Hilton. Again, this is event is open to the public. We will have music, drinks and hor d'oeuvres. Let’s party together for Brandon, share stories, laughs, and hugs.
We’re also putting together a slideshow to play at the party, so please anyone who has any pictures of Brandon, email them over immediately to our dear friend, Johnny from ForTheLoveofPunk.com. He is putting the slideshow together as we speak. Email him your photos now at email@example.com.
We are looking for any, and all pictures you might have. Please get them to us by Thursday night at the latest so Johnny can put it together in time. Thanks.
Anyone traveling in from out of town, we suggest looking at hotels in Laramie since that’s where we’re partying. After the event at the Hilton, I’m sure we’ll move the party downtown somewhere. Toby and Brendan will be there too so you know it’s gonna be a rager. Anyone in Laramie is welcome to come party, even if you can’t make the funeral.
The outpouring of love has been simply amazing. Teenage Bottlerocket was the biggest trending news story on Facebook this past Saturday, so for just a day Brandon finally got to be Bigger than KISS. I know wherever he is, he feels the love. We all do. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the support during this incredibly difficult time.
We will see anyone who can make it out this Saturday.
