Brandon Scott ‘Memo’ Kluz
Brandon Scott Kluz, 23, of Milford, NH died on Thursday, November 22, 2018, Thanksgiving Day, as a result of a gunshot wound inflicted upon him.
Brandon was born on August 12, 1995 in Landstuhl, Germany to Army LTC(R) Anthony P. Kluz, Sr. of Valrico, FL and Monica (St. Cyr) Kluz of Milford, NH.
He graduated from Milford High School in 2014 and completed a welding class at Manchester Community College. Brandon was employed at Granite State Hydraulics, doing what he loved – working on vehicles, welding and repairs.
Another of Brandon’s passions was skateboarding. He risked his body for a sport he so loved. His friends tell us his scars are small reminders of a great talent. With his flowing hair, explosive skating style, and colorful personality, he thrived on the camaraderie of his skateboarding and snowboarding friends.
Brandon lived life to the fullest and on his terms. A true free spirit – living in the moment. He enjoyed fixing cars and had a special love for old VWs. Brandon had a generous heart and would invite his friends to the house while they worked on cars together. Often, he would bring home a buddy, offer him the couch for the night, and a hot meal or two. He would drop everything to help a friend. Brandon was upbeat and had the ability to always make people laugh and enjoy life. Brandon will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Raoul St. Cyr; and his paternal grandparents, Walter Kluz and Christine Kluz.
Besides his parents, Brandon is survived by his brother Tony, Jr. of Milford, NH; his maternal grandmother, Leona St. Cyr of Milford, NH; a niece and little buddy whom he adored, Averi White of Belmont, NH; several aunts, uncles and cousins.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, December 9th from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Hampshire Hills, 50 Emerson Road, Milford. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery, Milford, at a later date.
