Brandon was born on April 30, 1984 in Roswell, New Mexico; the son of Buddy and Kathy Grantham.
He was married to Misti Conklin on September 25, 2004 in Artesia, NM.
Brandon loved life and made the most of every minute of it. He never worried about what he or his family didn’t have, but worked to see what he could do to get it. Misti and Brandon were friends in school and started dating their senior year. After that they were inseparable and you could see the devout love they had for one another.
Brandon always wanted to provide his family with any and everything that they needed and wanted. At the age of 21, he started his own business along with his dad, so that he would be able to do that. He worked hard, long hours and was known to go out and do jobs that normally took four men, without complaint. This allowed him to spend more time with his parents through the business and work to provide the best for his family.
Brandon and Misti have a son (Kaden-14)and two daughters(Kambry-11, Laityn-6). He is an avid sports fan, especially for the Dallas Cowboys. Any friends or family knew that you could always count on Brandon, but to schedule things around the Cowboys games. Brandon passed that love for the Cowboys on to his kids, even naming his oldest daugher, Kambry Dallas, after them.
He spent any free time he had coaching and spending time with the kids. He would do everything from boxing, swimming, playing sports, to even letting the girls dress him up. He just loved his family and wanted to make them happy. Outside of his family, Brandon loved to hang out with his friends playing games online or out on the field with his softball buddies. Brandon never knew a stranger and could quickly befriend anyone with his goofy smile, easy-going personality and love for life.
He is survived by his wife Misti Grantham; parents Buddy and Kathy Grantham; a son Kaden Grantham; daughters Kambry and Laityn Grantham; a brother Joshua Grantham; sisters-in-law Kristin Randolph, Tara Colwell and husband Justen, and Tristan Gillispie and husband Albert; parents-in-law David and Beth Conklin; nieces Kahlyn Grantham, Tatum Colwell and Taylen Colwell; nephews Easton Gillispie and Barrett Gillispie.
