Brandon was born in Winchester, VA on March 23, 1994, a son of David Henry and Brenda Jean Davis Sandy.  Brandon was a 2012 graduate of Martinsburg High School.  He was a loyal and devoted member of Cornerstone United Pentecostal Church where he served in ministry, primarily as Youth Pastor for the last seven years, but also in many other capacities.  He had recently transferred to the Executive Youth Pastor position.  Brandon also served on the Virginia District United Pentecostal Church’s Youth Ministry Team.  On Sunday, December 24, 2023, Brandon led pre-service prayer, led the Christmas Eve church service, read the Christmas story as a part of the service, and assisted in serving Communion.  Serving Cornerstone UPC was his passion and heartbeat.  Brandon was instrumental in establishing the P7 Club at Musselman High School, which has currently grown to around 60 members.  

Brandon worked as an Information Technology Specialist for the Internal Revenue Service, where he excelled and was being transitioned into a management position.  An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, and all types of sports, particularly WVU, Atlanta Braves, Miami Heat, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Brandon was a family man who loved spending time with his wife and beloved son Asher and was looking forward to the birth of their second son in April. 

Brandon was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Russell Frank and Helen Faye Wright Sandy and his maternal grandmother Ruth Ann Todd Swiger and husband Alfred James Swiger.

In addition to his parents, Brandon is survived by his loving wife Makayla Nichole McPhee Sandy; his son Asher Nathaniel Sandy; his brother Mike Sandy (Maddie); his father and mother-in-law Kurt and Kassandra McPhee; brothers-in-law, KJ McPhee (Natasha), Noah McPhee (Haylea); his nephews Emmerich, Clark, Alexander “Lex”, Oliver “Ollie” and a niece Emberlynn, along with his maternal grandfather James Kenneth Davis (Patty) and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
