It is with great sadness we announce the death of our beloved son and brother, Branden Collins. Born in Omaha Nebraska on April 20, 1997, Branden grew up in La Vista and graduated from Papillion-La Vista High School in 2015.
Throughout his childhood Branden loved sports, playing both soccer and baseball for many years. Even in his early years, Branden was a dreamer who was searching for something greater and his next big challenge in life. He kept this passion throughout his life, always telling us how one day he would make it big, one day he would be a millionaire.
Branden had two cats he adored completely, and he had unwavering love for his family, putting them first, more than anything else. He spent his time with us as a free spirit, living life his way and keeping us on our toes, teaching us new lessons every day. Branden was a warrior. He was tough as steel, fighting a battle only he could every single day to stay with us. Branden’s battle is now over, and though we mourn and miss him every moment, we take solace in that he can now rest peacefully.
We will remember Branden as a bubbly, fun loving and big-hearted soul with an unforgettable contagious smile. Branden’s unexpected departure has left a huge void in the lives of those who knew and loved him, but we will never let his memory be forgotten. His big heart, beautiful smile and crazy fun-loving personality will live on in the hearts of his family and friends, forever. Let his legacy serve as a reminder to live life to the fullest, treasure our loved ones, and appreciate the world around us. Gone but never forgotten.
