d. April 27, 2019

Brandon L. James, Age 38, of Taylor, MI passed away on March 31, 2019.

Brandon Laudale James was born July 28, 1980 to mother Hazel James and father Lundale Richmond in Detroit, MI. While cleaning Brandon’s room, we found that he wrote his own obituary. Here are the words of Brandon James:

We are here laying to rest Brandon James b.k.a. Big B, who no matter what life threw at me I kept a smile on my face. I don’t want anyone to cry, instead I want everyone to party and celebrate my life. One thing I can say is that although my time on earth was short I definitely lived life to the max. Even near the end, I was still trying to make sure everyone was okay and happy. I touched a lot of people when I rapped and I always spoke life to my family and friends. Even though I am no longer here I will forever live on in each of your hearts.

I leave behind my loving mother Hazel James; siblings William Edward James, Anthony Paul James, Adrian Pettway, Ciera Wells, Jermaine Richmond, Corey Richmond, Jeremy Pettway, Steven Pettway, Jessica Pettway, Me’chell Pettway. I am also survived by my grandparents Lillie Mae Richmond and Melvin Richmond; aunts Jean Vaughn, Ruby James, Lanessa Johnson and Tanya Thornton; and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

I proceed in death father Lundale Richmond, grandparents Mr. William James, Mrs. Bobbie James, niece Tanika James and uncle Bobby Ray Cook.
