Jeremiah “Brandon” Reginaldlee Talley died June 20.
A life of laughter and love for his family was silenced on that day at Factory Shoals State Park when God sent the angels to comfort and escort Brandon back home with him. He was born in 1998 in Decatur to Mrs. Roxanne Talley and Mr. Jeremy Gunter-Talley. Brandon was educated in the Newton County School District where he was an outstanding athlete at Clements Middle School. He had been recruited by the Newton High School football staff, where he was looking forward to playing the positions of tight end and kicker for the upcoming school year. Brandon was also very talented in music and art.
He enjoyed many special hours with his grandfather Lee, learning to play guitar and other instruments. Brandon, along with his siblings, accepted Christ and was baptized at Anointed Body of Christ Church in April 2012.
