Brandon James McCoy
Brandon James McCoy, age 33, of Mountain City, Tennessee, passed away on Thursday, October 10, 2019. He was born on May 25, 1986, to the late Junior Franklin McCoy II and Sandra Lynn Coffey.
Brandon, lovingly referred to as “Gimp” by some of his friends, was larger than life. He loved to make everyone he came in contact with smile and especially loved to make them laugh. He tried to find enjoyment in everything he did. He recently had a close friend get him a job at Shatley Paving, and despite his hard work, grueling hours, and working harder than any job he previously had; he was finally happy to have a job he looked forward to. Despite how tired he may have been, he always came home with a story to tell, to make his family laugh or something interesting about his day.
Brandon was a one of a kind friend to everyone he knew and especially loved being an uncle to his nephew, Ashtin. He was like an uncle to his young cousins, Xavier and Alan Lunceford III, and came to their defense regardless if they were around or not. Along with loving his new job and being around family, Brandon loved motorcycles, tractor and trailers, and all big trucks.
He was especially close his aunt Barbara Lunceford and his cousin Alan Lunceford Jr, who he looked up to and was more like a brother. Brandon had family and many friends that he was very close to throughout the years that will miss his presence here on Earth!
Other family members left to cherish his memories include his sisters, Christal Estep and husband Barney, Leslie Forrester and husband Shawn; brothers, Brian McCoy and wife Ashley Smith, Billy Jack Taylor and wife Susan; Aunt, Barbara Lunceford and husband Keith; several nephews including Ashtin McCoy, Jacob Estep, Lucas Estep; several cousins, aunts and uncles.
