6/20/80 - 7/19/07_
You could never say enough about Brandon. He was the best at everything he did; partner, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He was always there to give a hand when able. Those who knew him even for five minutes will always have a special place in their hearts for Brandon.
He loved everyone. He was taken way too soon and will be missed forever. God must have needed an angel of mercy because mercy was his game and no one could beat him. He has left to watch over his fiancé, Ayriell Shella Gardner; two beautiful sons, Jonus David Portnoy (9/18/04) and Kalub Derek Portnoy (7/18/06); father, Dana Portnoy; mother, Diane Portnoy; sister, Nicole Venice Portnoy; two brothers, Justin Christopher Portnoy and Tyler James Portnoy; nephew, Isaiah Ashtin Portnoy; niece, Alexis Rhea and her mother, Ashley Walker; aunts and uncles galore; hundreds of cousins; and friends all over the universe. We love you Brandon and we will miss you forever.
The funeral will be held at Evergreen Memorial Gardens, Fri., July 27, 2007, 12:30pm, with a viewing from 9:00am-12:00pm. Donations are being accepted at any Bank of America, under the Brandon Portnoy Memorial Fund. Anything helps, God Bless!
