Brandon Scott Perea passed away peacefully on August 13, 2022 at the age of 42 surrounded by his
family. He was born on December 30, 1979 to his parents David Perea and Jamey McCloy in Ogden,
Utah. He attended Mountain High School graduating in 1997. On October 9, 2021, Brandon married Jessica, the love of his life. Their love was and is a precious gift. They shared every laugh, every tear, and every waking moment loving each other. To love and be loved is the greatest gift of all.
In his younger years, he enjoyed the outdoors camping and four-wheeling with his parents and
grandparents in the mountains. He became a BMX racer filling the shelves of his bedroom with his
many beautiful trophies. He moved on to excel at skateboarding and snowboarding. He loved
animals especially his dogs Nava and Sugar. He also loved making crazy memories as one of the
Three Musketeers with his uncle Monte and his childhood friend Clint.
Brandon was incredibly talented in music, art, and anything he set his mind on. He taught himself
how to play guitar both acoustic and electric as well as the drums. This love of music eventually led
to the formation of the band Jackass Bone with his friends Jonathan “Spoons” and Kyle. He was also
a singer and a songwriter for the band.
Brandon’s incredible artistic talent enabled him to draw large works of art such as murals on his walls.
When he wanted to start restoring old muscle cars, Brandon went to the internet and researched how
to mechanically restore his 1971 Nova as well as his 1966 Cadillac hearse. His most recent project
was a 1966 Mustang.
Brandon’s sense of humor served him well in the many ups and downs of his life. Even in his final
days, he still had his family and hospital staff laughing at his antics. He lightened every moment with
a funny quip, a goofy smile, or an animated look. He loved everyone and said, “I’ll see you all on the
