As a child, he attended Grand Ronde Elementary School and Willamina middle and high schools. More recently, he completed his first term in college where he was studying to become an auto mechanic.

Brandon was a talented artist and was teaching himself to play guitar. His favorite pastimes were drawing and reading. He was very proud of his Native American heritage and read a lot about his ancestors and Tribal history.

He was fascinated with the presence of the golden spiral throughout nature and he often incorporated this into his artwork. His other interests included astronomy and his telescope was one of his most prized possessions.  

Brandon is survived by his three children, Alexis, Carmen and Colin, whom he couldn’t have been more proud. He also is survived by his mother, Candy Robertson; brothers, Jesse Jr. (Pee Wee), Ken and Lynn (Bear) Robertson; and sisters, Angie Blackwell, Debby Larsen, Mychal Cherry and Diana Sohappy. He also leaves behind countless nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Jess Robertson Sr., and brother, Mike Robertson.
