Brandon Rose, 24, of Troy, born Tuesday, September 20, 1994 in Maryville, passed away on Monday, February 4, 2019 at his home.
From his birth until his death this past Monday he was making everyone around him smile. Brandon loved being around family. Whether it was a full-blown beach vacation or a casual night watching movies, he enjoyed just hanging out with the people he cared for the most.
Brandon excelled at running. While at Triad High School he ran track and cross-country, which ultimately led to scholarship offers to run in college. He decided to give up that passion to stay closer to home and family. He continued to run as a hobby which allowed him to enjoy nature and the outdoors, which were very close to his heart.
Brandon had a tremendous gift for creating amazing works of art. Over the years he crafted everything from sketches to huge canvas paintings which depict people, nature, and abstract works. He loved gifting these masterpieces to close family and friends, works that will undoubtedly be cherished forever.
Brandon’s infectious smile, personality, and kind heart will be missed by all who knew him and loved him. He is now resting peacefully in the arms of the Lord.
