Webb, Lance Corporal Brandon J., Swartz Creek, Michigan. Age 20, died Tuesday, June 20, 2006 in Iraq. Brandon was born on April 12, 1986, in Mesa, Arizona. He served his country in the United States Marine Corps. Brandon was a member of Swartz Creek Area Fire Department, VFW Post #3720 and Amvets. He enjoyed baseball, golf and hockey. Surviving are mother, Ann Christofferson of Swartz Creek; brother, Austin Christofferson of Phoenix, AZ; father, Kevin Webb of Chandler, AZ; many aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of special friends.
Brandon was born in Mesa, AZ at Dessert Samaritan Hospital. Brandon
has a brother Austin. He loves golf, baseball (he played right field,
1st base, pitched and was put in at second base on occasion). He would
watch as many games as were on TV or we could get to. When he was in
Iraq I would tape them and send them to him. He loves hockey. His
favorite team is the Dallas Stars then the Phoenix Coyotes. I'd send
him the hockey games in Iraq too. His favorite color is green. He was
on Swartz Creek Area Fire Department prior to joining the Marine
Corps. They gave him a military leave when he joined the Corps. He
played a lot of War Hammer 40K prior to joining the corps as well.
He's a huge movie watcher. He can watch a movie 6 or 7 times in a row.
The world suffered a great loss on 6-20-06. His brother and I suffered
a great loss that day. As many families have. Brandon was driving the
Humvee that was hit by a 5 string daisy chain took the lives of two
other Marines as well.

"I remember growing up down the street from Brandon and his family. For years he was one of my best friends growing up. He always dreamed of joining the Corps. I moved away when I was 15 and always wondered about him as we had lost touch. To hear of his passing was heartbreaking and I wish my condolences to his family Ann and Austin. He will continue to be missed and I will always remember going for bike rides and having water gun fights with him and his brother."
