HENEFER a�" Brayden Jay Townley, 5, returned to his father in heaven on October 25, 2014 with "his Rhea" by his side following an accident. Brayden was born on April 26, 2009 to Brandon and Nicole Townley.
Brayden had such a fun-loving spirit. His smile was infectious and could light up a room. At such a young age he was the life of the party. Brayden loved to do anything outdoors, whether it was hunting, camping, riding horses, or just running around with his brother and sisters. He loved dinosaurs and bucking bulls and was even planning on being a T-Rex for Halloween. What Brayden loved the most was "his Rhea". He would constantly sneak away from home just to spend a little bit more time with her. Brayden had big plans to be a cop when he grew up. He had such a big heart and enjoyed all of the time that he spent with his family. He loved spending time with his aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and cherished his time with his brother and sisters. Brayden loved doing so many things with his dad, he made sure to not be far from him. Brayden will be greatly missed by all of his family. He loved giving kisses that he said would never come off and loved to give noses with his mom. We are all so blessed to have him as a part of our lives.
Brayden is survived by his parents, Brandon & Nicole; brother, Michael; sisters, Kellie, Rebecca, and Anneleigh; grandparents, David (Sandra) Roberts, KayDean Roberts (John Griffith), Monte & Melanie Townley; great-grandparents, Karen Jeffs, Linda Roberts and Darla Love; aunts, Rhea, Laura, Casuree, Angie, Samantha, and Melissa; uncles, Nathan, Kelly, Justin; and many cousins and friends.
