Brandon Philip Malo was born on March 20, 1995, in Hutchinson, Minnesota. He was the son of Ronald and Candace (Buboltz) Malo. Brandon was baptized as an infant on May 7, 1995, and was later confirmed in his faith as a youth on April 17, 2011, at Zion Lutheran Church in Buffalo Lake, Minnesota. He received his education in Buffalo Lake-Hector, and was a graduate of the Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart High School Class of 2014.
Brandon resided in Grafton Township, rural Buffalo Lake.
Brandon was employed as a butcher for Hector Meat Market for several years and most recently, as a welder for Bobcat in Litchfield, Minnesota.
Brandon traveled extensively to Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, New York, Florida, Iceland, and Jamaica. He loved camping and sitting by the campfires, hunting, fishing, and grilling and smoking meats. Brandon enjoyed weight lifting, skydiving, snowmobiling, getting tattoos, guns, cars, especially his most beloved ’88 Mustang, and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was a “big teddy bear” that thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his family, friends, and his dog, Binky, and cat, Puss.
Brandon passed away on Monday, November 28, 2022, at the St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, Minnesota, at the age of 27 years. He was a giving and considerate man. Brandon was an organ, eye, and tissue donor, so his family finds comfort in knowing that he will live on in others.
Blessed be his memory.
