Brandon J. Chapin

Brandon James Chapin went to be one of God’s Angels in heaven on Sunday, Dec. 10, 2023, surrounded by his loving family at the young age of 31. He was born on Sept. 3, 1992, to Peggy and Randy Chapin at St. Mary’s Hospital in Green Bay. Brandon had battled a brain tumor (hypothalamic pilocytic astrocytoma) since the age of 13.

No one could top his jokes or his artistry and especially his warm and thoughtful heart! He also had a never-ending supply of movie and TV quotes. He loved his family so much and especially his parents, siblings, and all his nieces and nephews. His dog, Axle, was his best pet and favorite furry friend ever!

Brandon is survived by his mother, Peggy Chapin, of Cecil; his father, Randy and Jolene Chapin, of Navarino; his siblings, Heather (Evan) Welch, of Shawano, Joel (Halle) Bartels, of Hortonville, Cody (Miranda) Chapin, of Gillett, Kassidy Chapin, of Cecil; his stepsisters, Macy and Kenedi Gondeck, of Navarino; his paternal grandfather, Russell (Doty) Chapin, of Green Bay; his nieces, Raina, Velecia, Iradessa, Raylynn and Gracie; his nephews, Rhylee, Jaxon, and Corbin; his aunts and uncles, Bill (Jeannie) Stiles, of Hortonville, Susie Wetzel, of Gillett, Mike (Mona) Wetzel, of Tomah, Barbara (Troy) Laatsch, of Marion, John (Jan) Wetzel, of Appleton, Marge (Nate) Teller of Cecil, Joyce (Dale) Pathke of Manitowoc, Julie (Rick) Rauterkus of Clintonville, Tim (Shelly) Wetzel of Appleton, Russel (Kim) Chapin, of Pulaski, Calvin (Bobbi Jo) Chapin, of Embarrass, Paul (Nicole) Chapin, of Schofield, Dan (Stacy) Chapin, of Gillett, and Pat (Penny) Lohrengel, of Clintonville.
