Aiden and Ava, I met your dad only once or twice while I worked for an attorney. Both times, his face light up when he was talking about you. Your dad was a gentleman, had integrity, and ALWAYS was genuinely polite and smiled. Even the few short moments I spent with him, it was evident that you were the light of his life!

Tracy - Brandon sounded like a warm, kind-hearted, and loving man. Words fall short of expressing my sorrow. However, I do know we never lose the people we love. They live the rest of our lives with us in our heart. You and your loved ones will be in my prayers. - Lisa Caraballo

Brandon was one of the kindest people I know. He loved his family. His face would light up whever he looked at his children. He will be missed by anyone whose life he touched. I hope Brandon will look down from heaven and give us all the knowledge and strength to never take people for granted as we all seem to do every day. Katy, Aidan, and Ava know that he will always be looking down from Heaven watching over you. Love Alice

We recently met Brandon Burbach when he came to our home a few weeks ago for a tree service estimate. We were very impressed with his knowledge & service capabilities, and looked forward to working with him. We were shocked when we saw what happened to him in the Kenosha News Online. As a fellow member of the Kenosha Chamber, he will be missed as he was a real asset to the business community. Our sympathy to Brandon's family on his tragic death, and best wishes for his father's recovery from the auto accident. Robin & John Kruk
