When Brandon wasn’t providing for his family, you could find him with his children, who were his world.  He also spent time hunting, fishing; generously sharing his catch, and going to the casino.  Brandon liked working on his truck, going to concerts and hanging out with his “Bros”.  He loved to feel the wind in his hair, whether it be on his Harley, four wheeler or his snowmobile.  In his spare time, he enjoyed social media and trying to keep in touch with all his friends from all over and was always there to help out in time of need.  He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his father; Emmett Fontenelle, his grandparents; Louis and Jane Donnell, Theodore Edaakie and Dorothy Mahooty, uncles; Leon, Charlie, Rusty and Willard Donnell, Robert and Vance Fontenelle, aunts; Bernadine Thunder, Sharon Barrett, Antoinette and Lisa Fontenelle.
