Brendan was a 2020 graduate from Elmwood High School. He played the trumpet in the marching band. He loved his time in the band. He was a huge Batman fan, and enjoyed working in the garage on his cars. He was a “blue jeans and cowboy boots” kind of guy, and definitely “anti flip-flop.” He will be dearly missed by so many.
