This is the story of Brandon Chicklis. Brandon was a kind young man that was loved, is missed, and will always remain in our hearts.
His story begins on July 24, 1997 where he was born in Lowell, MA, the son of Paul Chicklis and Trisha Edwards-Lamarche. He attended Fitchburg Schools and graduated from Montachusett Regional Vocational Technical School in 2015. While attending high school, Brandon was a member of the drafting class and joined the ROTC for a year.
Brandon was a member of the Boy Scouts of America for over 10 years and achieved the rank of Life Scout with Troop 41 in Fitchburg. Brandon really enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, and camping which made the Scouts of America a great fit for him. He said his favorite trip was when Troop 41 went and spent over a week at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico.
Brandon had been working for a local HVAC company for the past 2+ years. He enjoyed his job and was always trying to fix stuff at home that he had learned from work.
Brandon is survived by his father Paul Chicklis of Windham, NH and his mother Trisha Edwards-Lamarche of Ashburnham, MA. His siblings, Ethan Chicklis, and Patrick and Jasmine Edwards. He is also survived by his paternal grandmother Louisa (Pappas) Rocha and his high school sweetheart Jocelyn Williams of Westminster, MA, aunts and uncles, Mary (Pappas) and Mike Borodawka, Michael Lamarche, Raymond Lamarche and wife Cathy, Sarah Mercier, Andrea and Jason Parsons.
