ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in the memory of our dear friend, Brandon Krebs, 29, born on May 26, 1982 and passed away on December 26, 2011.

Someone like Brandon doesn't go swiftly into the night. He's remembered forever in the hearts of everyone who was lucky enough to be considered his friend. He was big hearted and kind to anyone he met. I suggest we use this site to remember him with stories, pictures, and even videos if you have them.

I will never forget his bright, cheery smiles nor his big, loving hugs that were filled with enough warmth to melt even the coldest winter day.

Yes, even in Delta.

As Brandon was fond of saying, "Get on in here, let the big bear get his paws on ya".

7 years. It's been 7 years. It feels like yesterday that we where all together....doing what we do (most likely being hellains)...but we where together. I can not count how many times I would reach for my phone to try to call you cuz I knew you would know the answer to whatever the situation was at the time just to be so very upset once I remembered that there is no calling you. I know your number by heart 378-8995. You where such a MAJOR part of all of our lives and I know we all miss you. I miss you more and more each day. I love you Brandon.

I didn't get to know you as well as I wish I had, but there was one moment years ago when you helped a stranger out for no reason at all, except that it was a kind thing to do and you had a big heart. Thank you Brandon, for being a wonderful person and one that I feel honored to have met.

Love and miss you Krebs. We had some awesome times roadtrippin in the motorhome with Pete as the driver/mechanic in '09. You were there with me in Talkeetna when I met Raquel. That was one of the best summers Ive had and you there were with me for most of it, if you werent there it wouldve never been the same. Im sorry I pressured you into driving to Seward when you were sick. God Bless

You were part of the family-the many nights you stayed and hanged out with Josh. Your grandmother always knew where to find you safe and sound. Now you are with her and she doesn't have to worry about you any more. You were a special soul and person. Kind and gently are the two words that always come to mind about you and will be remembered as such. God Bless you and keep you!

It breaks my heart to know that someone who was known for being so happy, kind-hearted, and loved by all who met him could have been hurting so much....you always could turn any frown upside down! You are and will be missed.

Brandon - I always enjoyed catching up with you on what was happening in your life. Seeing you was a bright spot. You will be missed by so many people and I am glad to have known you.
Posted by Jennifer Smith-Crusberg on December 30, 2011
Brandon, I cant remember a gathering of friends in high school that you weren't there for. You always had a smile on your face and time to catch up with whomever you ran into that day. I never heard you say an unkind word about anyone, you were just that kind of person:) I am so happy I was fortunate enough to see just a few weeks ago and get that hug! You will be greatly misssed.

"Drove up to Hillside Mannor sometime after 2 AM and talked a little while about the year"
This song has always reminded me of you and it will forever. About how we used to belt it out and make up the words when we were too tipsy to sing the right ones
A long December...Brandon it's been a while since I've seen you and I will miss you so much :(

Brandon, no one will forget the happiness you brought to a room full of people or the excitement you would bring when you would show up at a party. I'm sorry for the time I accidentally backed over the volleyball net you set up at the gravel pits, and how I thought it was a cat when you screamed "nooo! " and every time I use the word "plethora" I will think of you. Miss and love you

Fire Assignment

Shared by Steve McCombs on December 31, 2011

Brandon was in the same class with my son, Dave.  He was the class president.  His Grandmother, Pat, was a regular at Monday Night Bingo which I worked for Rural Deltana Fire Department.  After Brandon graduated and I retired from teaching, we both went to work for the Division of Forestry.

 

In 2008 I became a dispatcher at Delta Area Forestry where Brandon was a seasoned fire fighter.  It was a fairly slow season in Alaska and in the fall Brandon and I both took fire assignments in Oregon.  We flew out on the red eye out of Fairbanks together and landed in Eugene about 8 in the morning.  We each picked up a rental car and were off to our assignments.  Before checking in, I decided to have a nice breakfast.  Heading generally toward downtown Eugene where the dispatch center was; I found a pancake house and pulled into the parking lot.  As I am being seated, Brandon walked through the door.  I motioned him over.  We shared a meal and a fair amount of coffee.  Afterward we were off to our assignments and I didn’t see Brandon until the next spring.  It was the only assignment that we did together and was a happier time.

 

A life too short and an ending too sad:  I will miss our random encounters.

A few years back I was helping the local high school host a prom and there was no money for a dj. We kicked around some ideas, but it looked like I was going to have to be the dj for the prom. My daughters swore they wouldn't attend the prom if I was the dj and I didn't blame them. But I recalled that my daughters and son and their friend were always talking about Brandon Krebs and the great music he played at parties. So I called Krebs, and sure enough, he was there and agreed to be the dj for the prom for a nominal fee. He would have done it for free if needed. Brandon Custer and I showed him the equipment and how we it worked and a star was born. He soon improved on our feeble methods and became the premier dj for our area because he was the best part of any party. He djed my daughter's wedding and volunteered to dj my son's wedding in Mukilteo Washington this summer. We are heartbroken and miss him more than words can adequately describe. Love you so much Brandon...

My brother Ty called me about four years ago saying I had to take some time off work, because he had tickets to a concert that he knew I would want to see, also flying me down to do so. Like anyone, I said yes. So I'm get ready for this trip, and I get a call from Brandon asking me if I'd like a ride to the airport, and I was down with that because who wants to take a cab, when they could ride with a homie like Brandon! So we get to the airport, and I'm like thanks a lot bro, I'll see you when I get back. But Brandon had different plans in mind, he pulled out a suitcase and said (lets do the dam thing!!) It was the best trip i'v ever had! That's the guy Brandon was, spountainious as hell. I love him for it, and always will! He will walk beside me forever, and I know that because I can feel him right now. -Nelson
