Brandon W. Minier West Side of Fort Wayne on Leesburg Road. Photo by Jim Hill, 2019. The obituary says that Brandon was killed in a motorcycle accident and was just 35 years old. It breaks our heart to post these but we hope that it helps his family and friends in some small way that we are able to preserve his legacy on this web site.
I have a passion for eliminating roadway accidents after having seen so much pain and suffering caused by them around the world. My background is in mechanical engineering where I began my career with Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan working in Body Engineering. I remember the first test crash I watched and how sick my stomach felt when the car crashed into the concrete wall. This memory is forever "cemented" into my mind. As an aircraft pilot I was always focused upon safety procedures, and this way of thinking has made its way into my research into automotive safety. In a desire to end traffic accidents I created this Roadside Tribute site and manage a sister site RoadsideMemorialTributes.com web sites. I also created and manage the Christians for Christ Ministries https://www.christiansforchrist.com web site and a sister site to Roadside Tribute for drowning victims called Lakeside Tribute https://lakesidetribute.com/. My daytime job is to manage and implement the digital marketing programs for User Friendly Consulting, Inc.
