On Wednesday, April 22, 2020 Brandon Marsh McDermott loving son, brother, uncle and friend passed away peacefully at home after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma Multiforme brain cancer at the young age of 48.

Brandon grew up playing baseball and always dreamt of becoming a professional baseball player. He also enjoyed many rounds of golf with his father and grandfather Marsh. Brandon was also an avid San Francisco 49er fan, attending the 2020 NFC Championship game with his good friend Kevin Haley.

We will remember many family vacations spent at Brandon’s house, swimming hours on end in his beloved pool.

Brandon had this canny way of making us all laugh even during the most difficult times. His witty, dry sense of humor will be dearly missed. There is a hole in the universe with Brandon’s passing.
