Brandon Kitchens


My dad was inducted onto the Chicago Fire’s Wall of Honor this last weekend, though bittersweet it was a truly exciting moment for my family - even behind the tears there was a feeling of happiness. 

My dad joins two of my very dear and missed friends, Brandon and Dan on the wall, along with Euan, a 9 year old boy, who was also inducted onto the wall last Saturday.  So many important, inspirational gentlemen…

i always get excited when i get to text you or call you when good things are happening with the fire when you’re so far away, but this year, i will no longer have to call you in hopes of leaving you a message of section 8 cheering in the background for fire celebrations any longer. i’m pretty stoked about this.

a few short months after Brandon moved home and returned from the military, he left us. love always.
