Brandon Michael Laursen, 35, passed away on Friday, June 17, 2016 at Jennie Sealy Hospital after a brief illness. He was born on September 24, 1980 and was a lifelong resident of Galveston Island.

Brandon had a great love for animals, volunteered at the animal shelter, and adopted several furry friends from there. The ashes of two of his favorite pets who preceded him in death will be buried with him so they can be together forever.

He will be greatly missed by all who loved him- especially his mother, big sisters, and beloved pet, Wiggles.

Brandon is survived by his mother, Jane Cherry, his grandmother, Winifred Gordy, and his sisters: Dana Smith, Lisa Babcock and Shari Rogers.

Brandon’s family will receive visitors from 5:00 until 7:00 pm, Monday, June 20, 2016, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home. A funeral mass will be held at 11:00 am, Tuesday, June 21, 2016, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

The family would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful physicians and nurses at Jennie Sealy Hospital for the kindness and care extended to Brandon during his month’s stay in the intensive care unit.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to The Galveston Humane Society: 6814 Broadway St, Galveston, TX 77554 or charity of your choice.
