Brandon, age 28, of Philadelphia, PA, suddenly passed away on Wednesday July 5, 2023.

Brandon has a smile that lights up a room. He has a way of always smiling even when he’s hurting. From the moment he started walking Brandon was a thrill seeker, always on the lookout for adventure. If he saw something that interested him he would learn how to do it and gave it all he had. He never backed down and always took care of those around him. Brandon has a way of making everyone feel seen. From random visits at any given hour of the day to text messages and phone calls. He made sure you knew you were loved and he was thinking of you. Brandon has a passion for life, for learning and for family and if you are his friend he makes you family.
Brandon will be greatly missed, joining his mother, Dawn Steimling in heaven. He is survived by his children, Annalee, Amaris, Athena and Immanuel. Brandon is also survived by his Father, Ivan Serrano and wife, Nelly Serrano. His many siblings Reinaldo I.

Brandon, life will never be the same without you baby boy. Fly high, we’ll see you on the other side. No more tears, no more bad dreams, you’re finally free.
“I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your will shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.”
Psalms 91:2-6 NKJV
