Brandon Zapata, age 20, passed away on April 11, 2023. Brandon was an artist, who loved music, and deep philosophical discussions. He had the rare ability to see things from a unique perspective. He loved to challenge the “normal” and valued freedom above all else. He became a nomad to discover life and have adventures but he always knew where home was.
Ways that you can honor Brandon’s life: tell someone what they mean to you, help someone who needs it, give a real hug, call someone and tell them you love them, and always provide a listening ear because sometimes people just want to be heard.
Please join us for Brandon’s funeral at 11 a.m., April 22, 2023, at Forest Ridge Funeral Home with Pastor Bernard Corimbelly officiating the service. Afterward, we will celebrate his life at Cross Timbers Park. We are using dark blue and white as his colors and releasing balloons.
