Remembering Brandon Heald: A Passionate Bowler and Cherished Friend

It is with heavy hearts that we share the sad news of Brandon Heald's passing due to a tragic car accident. Brandon was more than just a participant in our Pins for Wins tournaments; he was an integral part of our bowling family, bringing passion, knowledge, and camaraderie to every event he attended. His presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

A loving husband, father, friend, and teammate, Brandon's love for bowling was unparalleled. As a dedicated player, he was especially fond of using Hammer equipment, a preference that became a hallmark of his game. Brandon and his close friend affectionately dubbed themselves the "Widow Brothers," a testament to their shared enthusiasm for the sport and their camaraderie.

Brandon’s expertise in bowling was exceptional. His understanding of bowling numbers, sports statistics, and anything requiring a sharp memory was unmatched. His ambition was clear; this summer, he aimed to average 200 and join the regional PBA tour—a testament to his commitment and love for the game.

Beyond his prowess on the lanes, Brandon was known for his loyalty and willingness to help others. He was always ready to lend a hand or provide support whenever needed. This selflessness was a defining characteristic of his personality, making him a beloved figure in our community.

Troy Losey, a family member, fondly remembers, “I grew up with him like my big brother; we’re only 7.5 years apart. He just had a birthday in March. Loved just hanging out, cooking, and watching bowling. Very kind soul. He loved bowling in your tournaments; you guys always treated us with so much respect.” These words capture the essence of who Brandon was—a kind, generous, and passionate individual who left a lasting impact on those around him.

Brandon's love for bowling extended beyond just playing the game. He enjoyed the camaraderie and friendships formed through the sport. His presence at our tournaments was always a highlight, and his enthusiasm was contagious. Brandon's goal of achieving a 200 average and joining the regional PBA tour was not just a personal ambition but an inspiration to all who knew him.

In honoring Brandon’s memory, we reflect on the joy and warmth he brought into our lives. His spirit, dedication, and kindness will continue to inspire us. Though he is no longer with us, his legacy in the bowling community and beyond will endure.

We extend our deepest condolences to Brandon's family and friends during this difficult time. As we remember him, let us celebrate the passion and kindness that defined his life. Brandon Heald may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
