Brandon Walton – September 26, 1982 – November 29, 2023
Brandon Scott Walton was born on September 26, 1982, to Casey and Juile Walton in Pine Ridge, SD. He was welcomed home by his two older sisters Andrea and Amy. He then helped welcome home his two younger sisters Casey Lynn and Carmen. Being the only boy, and middle child was extremely fun for his sisters to torment him.
As a young boy, Brandon loved to fish, hunt, wrestle, play baseball, get his hands dirty, and play with the neighbors. There was always a game of hide and seek going on with the whole block. This became known as the “Hell block” as the Waltons, Sharps, Deans and Benben’s were always causing trouble.
One of Brandon’s greatest attributes was his knowledge and skills for fixing cars and woodworking. He was always watching and learning from his dad, Grandpa Sonny and Uncle Toad. They were his biggest influences in life. He spent a lot of his childhood at the ranch learning how to work hard and summers in Minnesota learning to chop wood.
In high school, Brandon was always the life of the party. Wherever he was, his presence was known. He was always telling jokes or playing pranks. Again, he learned this from his father. It was very evident he wanted to be just like his father.
Brandon became a very proud father at the young age of 17, to Davon Scott. This only made him want to work harder and continue to pass down the Walton ways. Jesse Tre was then welcomed into this world almost two years later. His boys were his pride and joy. Brandon married Kayla Musfelt in July of 2003, they continued to grow their family, and welcomed six beautiful little girls, Shaylyn Nicole, Makenna Elizabeth, Ashlynn MaKayla, Tayanna Rayne, Bryleah Lynn and Kendall Shay. This completed the “infamous 6”.
Brandon moved his family to Parker, SD in 2011 in search of a better life for his family. He made that their home. It was here that he would build cars and bikes with his boys and attend many father-daughter dances with his girls.
Life happened, and Brandon moved away from his family. He lived in a few different towns in Nebraska, then went back to South Dakota to be as close to his kids as he could be. He continued to work hard and did everything in his power to be a part of his children’s lives. No matter what he did, his demons always won. No one in his family ever stopped loving him. His mother was always in contact and helped him in any way she could. This was because of the special bond these two had always had.
Brandon suddenly passed away on November 29th, 2023, due to natural causes, in Loomis, SD. He is survived by his parents, Casey and Julie Walton. Grandmother Francis Walton, Siblings Andrea (Travis) Miller, Amy (Matt) Soderlin, Casey Lynn (Ryan) Sharp and Carmen (Jason) Anderson, Children Davon, Jesse, Shaylyn, Makenna, Ashlynn, Tayanna, Bryleah and Kendall Walton, grandson Weston, many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and one great nephew.
Brandon is preceded in death by his Maternal Grandparents Irving and Beverly Butler, Paternal Grandfather Melvin (Sonny) Walton and nephew Tre Sharp.
