February 9, 1982November 25, 2019

Brandon Michael Doty, age 37 passed away on Monday November 25, 2019. Brandon was born Tuesday February 9, 1982 in El Paso, Texas to Robyn Armstrong McDaniel and Robert Steven Doty.

Brandon grew up in El Paso, Texas till he graduated from Franklin High School when he moved to Frisco, Texas to live with his mom. Brandon loved school all 12 years! In middle school and high school, Brandon excelled at swimming. He started swimming at Coronado Country Club and continued in high school. He was on his high schools swim team where he swam the breaststroke, free style and relay. He won numerous ribbons and trophies. One of his favorite places to be was in the water. His passion for swimming showed every time he would get in the water. His breast stroke was like no other.

In high school he was on the debate team that went to state and he was also Homecoming Prince.

Brandon lived in Dallas, Texas till his passing.

Brandon loved life! He would make anyone feel beautiful and loved so easily. When Brandon walked into the room people knew and gravitated to him. Brandon was always right!! There was no arguing with him. It became such a funny joke that even when he found out he was incorrect.. he said he was right. No getting around it. He never liked getting his hands dirty. He enjoyed doing makeup for others and he did an amazing job at it.

Every time a beauty pageant was on, he would pick and write down his top 5 before it started. More times than not he was right. He and his mom would go back and forth during the pageants talking about the dresses.. the interviews etc. Don't call Brandon when a pageant was on because he was not going to pick up the phone!

He loved listening to music. Britney Spears, Celine Dion Whitney Houston (his 1st concert), Andrew Lloyd Weber's Phantom of the Opera and anything on IHeart radio. Brandon LOVED watching the Golden Girls. That by far was his favorite show! He would really watch it every night! He also loved the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks.

Brandon loved God and was a Christian. He attended Catholic church while growing up.

Brandon always believed in doing the right thing for people and it didn't matter how big or small. He wanted other to know how important they were and how he believed in them. He was a great boss and mentor to many over his working years.

He will be greatly missed by many, many friends and family.

He loved being with his family and he LOVED his sibling Jason, Corey, Britt and Shelby. Making jokes and laughing with his siblings was something that happened every time they were together as a family. He called his Ma everyday. His Papa was his go to guy. He loved him so much.

Brandon was truly one of a kind. He loved life, all his friends and family with his whole heart. I met him my Junior year at Franklin after moving from Del Rio,Tex. He was such a kind sweet soul and had the most infectious laugh! I’m glad we kept in touch throughout the years and am Blessed to have called him my friend. I just wish we had more time. I know he’s up there watching over everyone. Love you Brandon!

Trey:Even tho I (Trey) dated Brandon for a short three months he impacted me tremendously he made me feel like I was the only person in the world that mattered when we were together he made me happy and grateful for life.
Maddie: With the amount of times I went with trey to pick Brandon up and we hung out it was phenomenal and amazing because we would just sit and talk all night with each other and I know that when my daughter gets older just based on what we will tell her she will love Brandon more then she already does because every time he came over and she was with us she would always run straight to Brandon and give him giant hugs and loved putting lotion on with him they did that religiously and she loved all his bracelets

Brandon, my heart broke when I heard of your passing; you were taken from this earth much too soon. Although I only had the pleasure of knowing you for a short time, you left a definite imprint on my heart. While you lived in Tucson, I was proud to be your best friend. You kept a smile on my face and had a way of always uplifting my spirits. I think the Universe brought us together to help each other heal; we were both a bit broken, but together we seemed to create a harmony, beautifully woven from not only our adversities, but most importantly, from our mutual goodness. I'm captivated by the number of lives your beautiful soul touched; to see such an outpouring of love is absolutely astonishing, and I feel so fortunate to have been touched by your radiant spirit. You were a vivacious person, Brandon, and your energy was positively infectious. Thank you for being my friend. Your sparkle shall live on. Fly high, angel.

I met Brandon through Harlan this past year. Brandon was so adorable. He had a great sense of humor. He was always kind and thoughtful. He laughed a lot and cherished life. He loved the Lord and counted on Him to see him through . His vibrant personality always made him fun to be around. I know he is in heaven with Jesus. I will miss his smile and his laughter.
My prayers are for his family and friends to have peace during this difficult time. May God be with you. Warmest regards, Kay Caldwell

Katie and I still talk and laugh about the many times Brandon was at our house when they were in high school. I will always remember him as a kind and funny guy with a great smile. Rest In Peace although you were taken too soon.

When I think about high school and the few years following, I can’t think of a memory that doesn’t include Brandon. Everyday he made me laugh. Everyday was an adventure. We were young and full of what we thought were great ideas, they usually weren’t, but we did everything together. I am so blessed to have had that time with you Brandon and I will always cherish our memories. I love you!
