Brandon was born on September 29‚ 1992‚ at Hanover Hospital in Hanover‚ Pennsylvania. His proud parents are Keith and Nancy Little‚ and loving brother‚ Shawn Little. Brandon graduated from New Oxford High School in 2010.
His goal was to join the United States Army. He joined right after high school‚ but before being sent to basic training‚ he had second thoughts and chose a different path. He decided to get an ordinary full-time job‚ as well as join the fire company. I remember how much time he gave towards training and helping out around the station. I know he loved hearing the pager go off; the look on his face said it all.
He received many certificates throughout his Firefighter I training. Brandon also received Rookie of the Year from his fire company. He devoted any spare time he had to working on his physical fitness. He could be found at the local gym every day and was always signing up for 5K runs.
As a son‚ you could always count on him. If you needed any help‚ he would be there without any questions. Brandon was also always there for his friends‚ lending an open ear and any advice that he could give.
At the time of his passing‚ Brandon had numerous applications submitted to become a paid full-time firefighter. His saying was always ‘Be strong.’ God knows we try our best‚ but some days it’s just hard to keep going. We will always remain strong‚ because we know he is watching over all of us.
