Brandon Bearspaw was called home by our Creator on Saturday, August 12, 2023 at the age of 22 years.


Brandon loved hockey, he would be in teams as a kid to his teens. And back in his younger days he enjoyed playing floor hockey with his uncles at his Grandmas. He loved spending time outdoors playing with his cousins , aunties and siblings. He enjoyed music and writing and he also enjoyed playing video games.  Brandon received his Diploma at the Morley Community High School. He attended Bow Valley College. He also received his security license at the Stoney Nakoda Resort.  Brandon had a bond with his old co-workers and enjoyed working at his old job at Esso.


Brandon will be remembered by his loving, caring and generous nature.  He had a contagious smile that lit up a whole room.  He will be missed for his jokes, funny sense of humour, and they way he would greet everyone he sees, friends, family, and all who knew him.
