Branson was an avid lover of sports, especially Georgia football, and during his young life had played football and baseball. His real joy though came from spending time outdoors, especially fishing and hunting. Branson had a deep love for his family and cherished the time they would spend together. He was blessed with a huge group of friends and loved to spend his time hanging out with them listening to music, swimming and riding four wheelers.
Branson was a member of First Baptist Church of Leesburg where he was blessed to be an active member of the youth group. Through the leadership of the church and guidance of his family, he was saved and we know he is now with his Heavenly Father.
Branson will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. He was the kind of young man that anyone would be proud to call son, grandson, and friend.
