1996

2024

Brandon Lee Fassoth, 27, of Merrillville, Indiana, passed away on June 18, 2024. He was born on October 14, 1996, in Hammond, Indiana, to William J. Fassoth III and Margie A. Fassoth-Tibbs. Brandon was an inspiration, a friend, and had the biggest heart. He graduated from Merrillville High School in 2015. During his junior year, he enlisted in the Indiana Army National Guard and completed his training as an infantryman in 2015. He was assigned to the 2-151 Infantry Regiment with the Indiana Army National Guard, Headquarters Support Company at the United States Army Training Center Fort Jackson, SC, and United States Army Center for Initial Military Training, Fort Eustis, VA.

Brandon loved being an infantryman, training and mentoring soldiers, and all aspects of being a soldier in the U.S. Army. Brandon enjoyed hiking, reading, and spending time with his cat, Fireball. He traveled the country seeking new hiking adventures and off-the-beaten-path locations to photograph. He loved being in the company of family and friends, sharing conversations and laughs. Fireball was his best fur friend, whom he loved dearly. He completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology and was pursuing his master’s degree. Throughout his military career, he completed multiple Army schools, including Air Assault and Joint Forces Leader Development.

Brandon was passionate about physical fitness and could always be found in a gym. He did not believe in limits and set personal goals in weightlifting that he always managed to achieve through dedication and hard work. No physical challenge was too much, and he was always inspiring others to help them achieve their goals.

Overall, Brandon was a loving son, brother, and best friend, always there for anyone. He was a soldier, infantryman, and leader in the U.S. Army. His impact on personal relationships and professionally will continue through the people he touched. Brandon is survived by his father, William J. Fassoth III; his brothers, William, Joshua, Justin, and Anthony; and his sisters, Diana, Dana, Dawn, Magen, and Aurora. He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Margie A. Tibbs-Fassoth. A memorial service and funeral will be held at Calumet Park Funeral Chapel in Merrillville, Indiana, on Tuesday July 2,  from 2 pm – 7 pm. The family wishes to thank Sergeant Major Alan Watts, Command Sergeant Major Ephraim Rogers, the TRADOC and CIMT leadership and team members, and countless others for their care and support. “He will be deeply missed but never forgotten.”

Brandon, I have many words to say about you but I’ll never forget you. Although like every couple, we had our ups and downs, I never stopped and never will stop loving you. I wish I could hug you one more time but I know you’re resting peacefully now through everything you experienced in your life and growing up. Thank you for all the memories we shared and for giving me a small part of your life. -Ashley 💕

As I drove home tonight after visiting my mom, I was stopped in traffic on US 30 in Dyer where the procession was traveling. At first I was not sure what it was. I found out afterwards and I felt so somber and sad to see someone so young lose their life.
I thank you Brandon for your service and keeping our country safe. May you rest in peace.

To the Fassoth family I am truly sorry for your loss. 🌹

Brandon was a sweet respectful loving young man. Our family had the privilege of getting to know him through our niece Jill. We always had a great time together. When ever they were over you could always see the love they had for each other and it never did and never will stop.
He will be missed. 💔

So sorry to hear of this. I heard first through my husband. He and a friend planned to follow the procession on their motorcycles. My husband is a veteran. My daughter-in-law is a friend of someone who knows the family and she attended the wake tonight as I watched her children. I lift up this family and their loss before God our father, that he would wrap his loving, healing arms around them to comfort and assure them that they will see Brandon again in heaven for eternity. In Jesus name Amen.
