Today, we celebrate the life and accomplishments of our beloved Brandon Emile Berment (“B”), who passed away on Wednesday, October 30, 2019. Brandon was born on November 8, 1981 in Brooklyn, New York to the elated union of Carl Francis Berment and Marjorie Luisa Hunter Berment. Brandon grew up with a family that helped instill the core values in planting the roots to his successes. He learned alot from his maternal and paternal grandparents -- Monica Richardson and Otilda Hunter. Brandon understood that focus, hard work and commitment were key tools, but his kindness and generosity were what truly made him shine.
Brandon attended Benjamin Banneker Academy High School, then persued his academic education at the University of Maryland (Robert H. Smith School of Business). He was a member of the graduating class of 2003 where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance. In addition to his academic achievements, he would also forge some lifelong bonds and friendships. Brandon was genuinely loved by all his friends and family because he was always willing to put others before himself.
Brandon was truly devoted to his family and work. He was always concerned with the wellbeing of his family and always made time to check in to make sure everyone was doing well.
Brandon held the prestigious position of Regional Sales Manager at Eli Lilly USA where he received numerous awards and accolades for his accomplishments and contributions to his company. When Brandon was not working, he enjoyed culture and travel; he was a walking book of world facts. Brandon was a self-proclaimed “foodie”. There wasn’t a Michelin star restaurant he didn’t know about.
Brandon is survived by his father Carl Berment; his sister Karla Berment; his nephew Kai Berment; his aunts: Glenda Richardson and Marcia Hunter Adams; his uncle Nana Owuso Aboagye; his cousins: Keron Richardson, Alexander Adams, Yaa Aso, Kweku Amankwa and Kofi Bonsu Hunter; and close friends with whom he had a special bond: Jason, Chris, Shalique, John and Nate. Brandon believed that there are friends, there is family, and then there are friends who become family.
Brandon will be greatly missed by all his family and friends. He will always hold a special place in our hearts because he has touched each and every one of our lives in a special way.
“The measure of a man’s greatness is not the number of servants he had, but the number of people he served”.
