His dream of opening an art gallery showcased his visionary spirit and love for self-expression. Brandon’s incredible talent extended to his impeccable calligraphy, which showcased his attention to detail and love for the written word.

As a devoted sports fan, Brandon passionately cheered on his beloved Ohio State University Football team and was an unwavering supporter of the Dallas Cowboys. His enthusiasm and infectious team spirit brought joy and camaraderie to every game day gathering.

Brandon’s laugh was infectious and it’s too many more memories to write down. I thank the Lord that I had a chance to meet Mr. Brandon “juice” Scott. For those that did not get a chance to meet him missed a treat. Fly high juice.
