Obituary for Brandon "Cotton" Patterson

Brandon “Cotton” Patterson, age 20, of North Tazewell, VA passed away Sunday, July 8, 2018 following a car accident. Cotton was a beloved member of the RHS Class of 2016. He was a car enthusiast. He loved talking about cars with everyone and he loved playing his guitar. He was an Honorary Member of Hustle Hard Organization, a motorcycle organization created by his dad. Cotton loved everyone he came in contact with and was loved in return. An infectious smile always on his face. He will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting him.

The family requested a few memories from friends: “I have no words, I am at a loss. We had good laughs, good hikes, and good times.” “Cotton Patterson, you were an all-around great person.” “You were such a nice and caring person.” Heaven gained an angel.” “He was a wonderful and kind person.” “Such a kind and caring person.” “He helped fill my senior year with laughs and love…I remember him walking down the hall with his arms open wide.” “A once in a lifetime kind of friend.” “Always there to listen, offered kind encouraging words.” “Cotton was a wonderful person who made people laugh wherever he went.” He was like family to us.” “Genuine sweet person.”
