Braxton was my "first" friend we met and became best buddies when we were 5 years old. Many good times over the years! He was extremely smart and hard working, traveling and working all over the world. Although his family moved to Forest Oaks and he went to Southeast for high school he was still a Whirlie at heart. You will be missed old friend.

My first thought when I read of the death of Braxton was when I believe, you two transferred from Lindley to Kiser. Here were these two good-looking guys, sharp dressers, full of confidence, and they were wearing sandals. I had never seen guys wearing sandals.  Anyway, your friendship was very apparent. Braxton was a good fellow and I know many are now dealing with breaking hearts, and I wish them all comfort where ever that comfort may be found.

I remember Braxton most from 3rd grade, Mrs Fraley's class at Lindley.  She use to have us go up to the blackboard and race each other, doing math problems as fast as we could.  Braxton always came in first; he was one capable kid!  He challenged me to get better in math to try and beat him-doubt I ever did.

My memoires of him are fond.  I never met anyone else named Braxton.  So sad to hear of his passing.

Braxton was one of my first little friends at Lindley Elementary. In 2nd grade, while waiting in the lunch line he offered to give me ring. I said "No thanks" I don't reallly want a ring"  Fast forward to our 40th reunion. Braxton was unable to attend, but we talked on the phone. Much to my surprise, he remembered that moment too and we had a good laugh together. Braxton was a smart and generous person. My heart goes out to his family and friends. Rest in peace little friend.
