Vail Daily obituary: Brandon J. White, 1986-2014

Brandon J. White, Dec. 6, 1986-July 7, 2014.

Born in Southern California but Colorado was his home. He was bright, caring, loving and could make any situation better with his laugh. He was adventurous and loved the outdoors. He was an avid snowboarder and loved Beaver Creek. When it came to camping and hanging out with family or friends, Brandon was always the one to cook or barbecue. He attended many concerts through his teenage and adult life. He was a very genuine person with a huge heart. Very outgoing and well known in the Vail Valley. He will be missed.

He is survived by mother Mary Nelson; father James White; brother Michael R. (Mikey) Poloski; grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Col. Robert D. White; stepfather Michael A. Poloski; uncles Barry, Bob, Dennis and Tom White; sister-in-law Jessica Carbajal; nephew Ayedenn Isaiah Carbajal; and the love of his life, Brittany L. Martinez. Also many cousins and friends.

A memorial fund has been set up at Wal-Mart in Brandon’s name to help family through this difficult time.

A vigil will be held at the Edwards skate park at 1 p.m. Saturday.
