Brandon was born on July 30, 1984, in Wilmington, NC. Brandon leaves behind his mother, Melody Ferrel Staebell (husband Jim), his wife, Hilary Holder, his children, Connor and Chloe Holder, his brother Jamie Holder (wife Whitney), his sister, Theresa Somerville (husband Matthew), his niece, Emma Lynn Somerville, his nephew, Evan James Somerville, his step sister Katie Lowry (husband Charlie), and his step brother AJ Staebell (fiancé Erin). Along with many cousins, aunts and uncles that will miss him dearly. He was preceded in death by his loving father, James Bruce Holder and his grandparents.

Brandon was loved by everyone he met. He was a wonderful father,husband, son and brother. He took great pride in being a great Dad (Dada). He was a very hands on dad, from coaching Connors Tball team to dancing with Chloe, he did it all.

Brandon always said his greatest accomplishment would be who he raised. His biggest dream was to be a dad.

He worked for Landfall COA from 2001-2021. He took pride in his work and everyone that knew him knew he looked at his coworkers as family, and they did him as well. Brandon was pure of heart and taken from us too soon. Brandon loved Duke Basketball, Carolina Panthers, and the Atlanta Braves. Brandon never missed a game, just ask his wife!

Everything what Brandon done Conner and Chloe was right there with him. The kids ran to Brandon when he came in the door from work and even though he was tired from a long day at work he made time for them everyday.

I never got to meet Brandon in person but saw all the great pictures of he and his family during happy times that his mother and wife posted about his life on Facebook. He was a very wonderful person I am sure. May God hold all of his family close during this very sad time. Prayers for all.

I remember teaching Brandon in Sunday School when he was a young teenager. He was then and remained a gentle, kind, and fun-loving soul. His smile lighted your day. He will be missed! Praying for Connor and Chloe to always have their dad’s spirit with them. Prayers for all who loved him best.
