Obituary

Brandon Warren Connell of Villa Rica, Georgia passed away suddenly on Monday December 27th, 2021 after an unrelenting battle with pancreatic insufficiency, esophageal achalasia and esophageal stenosis. He was just 36 years old.

Brandon was born August 18th, 1985 in Middletown, Ohio, the son of Brad Connell and Shary Mynhier Connell. At the time of his passing Brandon was employed by the Triosim Corporation in Carrollton, Georgia where he worked, alongside his father, as a mechanical planner.

In his free time Brandon enjoyed the study of astronomy. Photos of constellations, galaxies and the moon adorned the walls of the apartment he shared with his two German Shepherds, Neila and Nova. Brandon was tech savvy, to say the least. He was everyone's go-to guy when it came to fixing any sort of electronic. He could always be found downloading the newest movies and streaming them for his family to enjoy or hanging out watching an old favorite just to reminisce and laugh about the same parts that made them all laugh until they cried, just like the first time they watched it. Inside jokes and side-splitting laughter were never in short supply if Brandon was around. There was always a story to be told about Brandon and his younger brother Cody, whether it took place 15 minutes ago or 15 years ago, the recreation of the incident always left the family in stitches and would undoubtedly lead to more stories and continued laughter.

Until we meet again.
We think about you always,
We talk about you still.
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.
We hold you close within our hearts
And there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives,
Until we meet again.

Brandon was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Bernard 'Gig' Connell; his maternal grandparents: Warren and Marie Mynhier; his uncles: Dale Connell, Steve Mynhier and Tim Mynhier; and his cousin, Phillip Mynhier.

Left behind to cherish his memory, his parents: Brad and Shary Connell; brother: Cody Connell (Shelby); his nephew: Jackson Warren Connell; grandmother: Dorothy 'Dot' Connell, as well as a host of extended family.
