Brandon Thomas Head, 22, entered into the presence of his heavenly father at 8:48 am on Monday, October 3rd, 2016 in Norfolk, Virginia. He was born at 12:21 am on August 31st, 1994 in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. Brandon was the son of Stephen and Roberta Head. He was a devout child of God and a member of Hope Lutheran Church.
He was a 2012 graduate of Princess Anne High School. He was active in a number of clubs in school and participated in church functions and community events such as: CHKD, Make a Wish, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Polar Plunge, Operation Smile, Out of the Darkness Walk, Relay for Life, Breast Cancer Awareness, Virginia Beach Animal Shelter, Legit (church Youth Band), Vacation Bible School, Spanish Club, Asian Club, Diversity Club, 30 Hour Famine/World Hunger projects, National Youth Gathering, Enchanted Evenings, Association of the Deaf-Blind, assembling Food Baskets, and Car Washes for his church Youth Groups. He enjoyed bowling with the Tidewater Lutheran’s Bowling League. Brandon will always be remembered as a loving son, brother, god-son and friend. He will be deeply missed.
Left to cherish his memory are parents, Stephen and Roberta Head, sister, Brianna Head; brother, John Head; god-mother, Joni Shafer; god-father, David Malucci; and god-daughter, Kieran Guillory. He is preceded in death by: aunt, Rachel Bielefeld, uncle, Randall Head; pop-pop, John Head; mom-mom, Sallie Head; uncle, Patrick Head; step-grandfather, Norbert Leyh, and grandmother, Arloa Leyh.
Brandon was a Knight of the Bald Table, an honor bestowed upon him in 2014 by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for his many years of participation and commitment in raising awareness of pediatric childhood cancers. He was known for lighting up a room with his smile or laughter. He loved to tell jokes and little stories. If you were having a bad day, Brandon would either sit, with all the patience in the world and let you open up to him, or he would give you a massage and ease away your tension.
Brandon was a Crusader, not with just his own issues, but he would fight the fight for anyone who was unable to fight for themselves.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Sunday, October 16th, 2016 at 3:00 pm at Hope Lutheran Church, 5350 Providence Rd. Virginia Beach, Virginia 23464.
