27th, 1975, lost his hard fought battle with End Stage Diabetes and Congenital

Coronary Heart Disease on November 30, 2019. He was 44 years old.

Born on June 27th, 1975 to Darrel D Zdawczyk and Sharlene G Landrum-

Zdawczyk in Toledo, Ohio at St. Vincent's Medical Center, Brandon was very

proud to have grown up in the Historical Polish Village neighborhood of North

Toledo and he carried it in his heart everywhere and in everything he did and

accomplished. He attended St. Adalbert's Elementary School and went on to

graduate from Calvin M. Woodward High School in 1993.

From there, he went on to start his career at Erie Construction at the bottom level

working his way up to various top tier management positions in various different

cities including Greensboro, NC and Lansing, MI, his beloved second

hometown. Once returning home to Toledo where his heart was, he used the

business and marketing knowledge he learned at Erie, and went on to be a

successful entrepreneur opening Insurance Benefit Group of Toledo/SE

Michigan, then later acquired another agency, then merged both agencies

changing the name to Brandon Z Insurance Agency and is very proud that his

legacy of taking care of people's Health and Life Insurance needs with Love will

continue even though Brandon is no longer with us; he really enjoyed helping

others and treated his clients like family. Brandon also was an investor and

consultant behind the scenes on various other local business ventures as well.

Loving anything that had to do with the gathering of people, and he was a “more

people there was, the merrier it was” person. Brandon really loved hanging out

with friends and colleagues at various Fine Restaurants, especially his favorite,

The Mango Tree, and EVERY Tuesday was Family Wing Night at Buffalo Wild

Wings. He also loved music, lots of cars, karaoke, sports, and was an avid Sports Card and Memorabilia Collector also having an affinity for wristwatches,
