Brandon was born in Fernie and attended school there. He later moved to Cranbrook for the birth of his daughter Madelyn MacArthur. He loved all sports but his daughter was his biggest love of all. He was a pro MMA fighter and loved the sport as well as all of the people he met in it. He had passion for animals and was always making additions to his parents collection of barnyard friends.

He is also survived by a large group of family members on both sides.
He will be dearly missed by family and friends. He truly was unique in his ability to light up a room.
