I was so saddened to hear (just this morning!) of Cat's passing. I had no idea he was ill. I had just reconnected with him last year on Messenger. We had a nice chat. I worked at Exxon and that's where I met Cat. My sister and I, and friends, used to go to hear him perform at Vaudeville Pizza back in the day! RIP Cat.... you're home now.

Cat and I were friends. We were more than friends. We were brothers. We have a lot of history between the two of us. We worked on jobs together for other people and for ourselves. We always helped each other. I will surely miss him. Calvin and Chad if you ever need me, you know how to get in touch. Love ya'll and God bless, Arthur "Cat" Clyde Brandon
Love Bobby and Tammy Humphreys

Cat was my mentor in safety and most importantly he was my mentor in life. Go rest high on that mountain. Son your work on earth is done. Go to heaven a shouting and playing that saxophone.
Love you my brother.

Fat Cat could always make one laugh.He had many talents,could play many instruments and could sing beautifully .He was a fellow firefighter brother,. He was a diamond in the rough but oh what a diamond he was. I’m very thankful that I knew him. No one can ever fill his shoes. He drove the flame mobile till there were no more flames left. I and fellow brother firefighters will truly miss him. Rest In Peace Cat will see you on the other side someday.
