We just received news that Brandon passed away. The family has a go fund me to help pay for burial costs.
Brandon was called off of a work shift and took a drive up a popular and well maintained county road to a view the of Carson Valley. While turning around, his vehicle slid down a hill and was high centered. He spent a few hours trying to get out and a multiple day storm rolled in. After camping in his truck for two nights, he was rescued by Washoe County Search and Rescue's RAVIN helicopter. It was described that he was near death upon discovery.
His brother went hiking the 1st night to find Brandon but returned to his vehicle and found that it was stripped of crucial parts.
Brandon's truck has substantial transmission and electrical issues from his attempts to getting out. Our organization wants to help him fix his truck and get his family back on their feet.
775 OFFROAD and RECOVERY dispatched a team to recovery Brandon's tools and truck. He is the only person working in his family right now. Because he hasn't had his truck, he hasn't been able to work his trade, carpentry.
Let's help this family get back on their feet so Brandon can get to work and provide for his family.
