March 28, 1940-June 2, 2019

Sadness fills our hearts for the loss of our Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather and Friend. 

We know he is at peace for the morning of his passing my sister heard the cooing of the dove — “a sign that a loved one has passed and is now at peace”.  In our hearts we know he has reunited with his son, Jess (Buck) Branstetter Jr., who passed away April 5, 2019. We like to think of them together in heaven sharing a laugh and beer, fishing from their favorite river bank.
