Brenden graduated from Valley R-6 High School in Caledonia on May 15th 2009.He enjoyed the academic team and Math club.He was exceptionally bright . He was very close to his classmates, some of them sharing the whole 13 years. He had many friends amoung the students there and even captured the heart of most of the faculty, staff and administration. Brenden was never easy or simple. He challenged everyone he came into contact with. He considered himself an intellectual and spent many hours in conversation with his mother and father, or anyone who would talk. His fierce love for his brother Keegan was well known, no one messed with Keegan. It helps to have a 6ft 4 ( 240 lb.) big brother. Keegan was his constant companion. Brenden was larger than life, he grew and grew. He used his size to help others feel secure and lend a hand (when big hands were needed). His cousin Hayden was his confidant and friend, he loved Hayley and Hunter. Brenden loved all of his family and would show up at the oddest of times, just to visit or stay the night. He could laugh at or with his Aunt Tuna. He was surrounded by good friends whom he seemed to entertain. He really wanted people to have fun. Brenden never dressed up (except for Prom). He told the most hilarious stories, sang the stupidest songs and did the craziest of things. Hes reported to have helped many kids graduate and even helped some with their art.
Brenden was looking forward to college. He had the most magnificient brain and couldnt wait to get started with life. He was enrolled at Culver-Stockton College ( Canton , Mo ). he was due to start classes on Aug. 15th. Brenden started his own newspaper, developed his own line of personal care products and formed numerous clubs. All of this was to make people laugh or think and he didnt care which. Brendens best friend was Clint and they spent hours conspiring together. Brenden loved his girlfriend Jessie and Jessie loved Brenden they were a perfect fit.Brenden lived his 18 years to the fullest, he begged to differ and could argue either side of any problem. He wanted to know everything about everything, He did everything just the way he wanted to and could not have been loved more.

Brenden sought out God and had a personal relationship with him, he attended the youth groups in and around Belgrade . He was saved, and believed in Jesus. Funeral services were conducted Thursday June 11, 2009, at Valley R-6 High School, by Reverend Harrison Brown ( Center Ridge Penecostal Church ) Davisville.Great support was received by The Country Corner Florist ( Potosi ).
