Brandon Lee Ethridge

of Little Rock, AR, 1988 - 2014

Brandon Lee Ethridge, age 26, beloved son and brother, amazing uncle, incredible friend, and loving boyfriend, passed away December 21, 2014 at Baptist Hospital. Brandon was a Leap Year baby and like his date of birth, February 29, 1988, he was a rare gift indeed. Funny, smart, loving, compassionate, could fix anything, and strong as an ox are the things that best describe him. We were all better people for having been a part of his world because when you were around Brandon, you were in his world. He was a natural leader and he did things his way. His smile, quick wit, and beautiful face will be remembered on a daily basis without fail. He loved spending time with family and friends, going fast on anything with wheels, and rooting for the Seminoles and Razorbacks.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Mary Modlin, his grandfather Melvin Ethridge, and his best friend, Christopher O'Neal. He leaves behind his parents, Mom, Rhonda Ethridge of Little Rock, and, Dad, Robert Michael Ethridge of Little Rock; his brother, Christopher Shane Ethridge, sister-in-law Bethany Lynn Ethridge, his beloved niece, Sophie Jane Ethridge all of Hot Springs; the love of his life, Hannah Danielle Chance of Little Rock; his step-mother Cindy Dove and her two children, sister Angela Linebarger and brother Jacob Dove; Aunts Debbie Modlin and Ruby Jordan; Uncles Mark Modlin and Gary Modlin; Cousins Chrystal Baker, Lee Modlin, Shannon Modlin, Keri Modlin, Robbie Jordan, Ronnie Jordan, and Ryan Jordan; and numerous friends that were his family.
Pallbearers will be Christopher Green, Dominick Pace, Ricky Harris, Coy Garrett, Phillip "Flip" Patire, Christopher Parent, Thomas "TC" Dunn, Kendall Blake and Mike Jones. Officiating will be Ed Wills of St. Michaels Episcopal Church.
Brandon, we love you and always will. Shine on you crazy diamond. Go Noles.
