Brandon Cyril Weber lost his brave battle with kidney failure on January 9, 2022, while waiting a kidney transplant.
Brandon was born July 30, 1981, in Greenough Montana to Keneth Weber and Debra Imlay. Brandon was “the life of the party” growing up in a family of 11 siblings who nicknamed him “Bud”. He attended Florence Carlton Elementary where he wrestled and played baseball. He graduated from Bigfork High School-his interest was football and made countless friends. Before settling in Missoula, Montana, Brandon explored the country and spent time in Arizona with his sisters. Brandon attended the University of Montana and worked as a supervisor for a manufacturing company for eight years exceling in leadership. Life’s blessings occurred when Brandon met and married the love of his life and best friend Rachelle Meidinger.
On August 8, 2018, Brandon and Rachelle were married in Stevensville, Montana in a beautiful garden ceremony surrounded by their loving family and friends. Three short months later Brandon was diagnosed with kidney failure and together with his new bride by his side, began the journey of receiving a kidney transplant. Brandon did not let this diagnosis hold him down and remained busy enjoying life and living it to its fullest. He loved packing up his wife and traveling the mountainsides in search of elk, mushrooms, huckleberries and fishing holes. Brandon loved weekends spent at local hot springs, attending family get togethers, playing games-like Button- and watching UFC fights on Saturday nights with all the family.
Brandon was a friend to everyone and will be remembered for his generosity, infectious laugh, sparkling green eyes, zest for life and positive attitude. He was confident, fun- loving and his enthusiasm was contagious. Brandon carried a larger-than-life persona- always protective of the underdog and those close to him. He was known for his wisdom and inspiration, shared below is one of Brandon’s posts:
“Today is a new day! Go out and make today the best day of your life. We all have one life to live…it can either be a routine day or a day full of miracles and opportunities. Get up, go out and make it happen. No excuses. No negativity. Just pure action. Love and cherish one another; for no one know when today is your last day or their last day!”
Brandon was preceded in death by his brother Roger Weber, his father Keneth Weber, mother Debra Imlay and stepfather Gary Claussen. He is survived by his wife Rachelle Weber, his brothers and sisters: Russ Weber, Kenny Weber, Cheryse Wodecki (Michael), Crystal Weber, Kyle Weber (Nicole), Amanda Zeiler (Alan), Brian Weber, Angelyn Conat (Josh), Nicole Claussen, Jason (Holly) Claussen and many adoring nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Brandon’s life will be held Saturday, January 29, 2022, at 2 pm at Highway Baptist Church, 225 8 Mile Creek Rd in Florence, Montana.
