Brandon James Patch, age 18, of Miles City, passed away Saturday, July 26, 2003, at Benefis Healthcare in Great Falls after being struck by a batted ball while pitching for the Miles City Mavericks baseball team.
Brandon was born Sept. 10, 1984, in Miles City, the son of Duane 'Spud' and Debbie Janssen Patch. He grew up and attended Highland Park Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Washington Junior High before graduating in 2003 from Custer County District High School. He was very active in baseball and football. He enjoyed playing golf and was always present for a poker game with his friends. He always enjoyed it when his Aunt Peanuts came from Bozeman to cook his favorite Italian pasta for family dinners. He was noted for late-night snacks and spending time with his girlfriend, Lacey.
Brandon helped umpire many Little League and Babe Ruth baseball games. Because baseball was his first love, he would spend hours on the pitching mound practicing. He was an avid New York Yankee fan. Brandon never knew a stranger, making the list of friends he leaves behind immense. He was always the bright spot in any situation and his candle will burn in our hearts long after these days are gone.
He is survived by his parents, Spud and Deb of Miles City; a brother, Brady Patch of Miles City; his grandparents, Jim and Barbara Janssen, also of Miles City; numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and his special friend, Lacey Reid.
Brandon was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, James and Frieda Patch.
