Timothy "Timmy" J. Brand, Jr. age 20, of Rossville, Indiana, passed away on Thursday, July 5, 2012.   He was born on August 17, 1991, in Fredericksburg, VA. to Timothy (wife, Shelly) Brand and Terri (husband, Rasmus) Ronlev.  Tim was a technician for Physiocare Home Health Care.  

He graduated from Rossville High School in 2010 where he was active in FFA, theater and a track team member; he was also active in the Rossville Community Youth Group member (Men of Integrity) and a sponsor of a child through the Compassion Project.

Timmy opened his heart to Christ in February of 2008.  He enjoyed working on cars with his friends.  Family members described him as a sharp pointy "pack rat" and an electronic wiz whether repairing friends computers or his own after a blow up while playing Mine Craft.  His smile and ability to make others smile allowed him to stand out amongst others.
