Jimmie H. Brandenberger


Jimmie "Jim" Brandenberger, 75, of Sanger, Texas, and formerly of Bryan, Texas, passed away April 11, 2019, losing his eight-year battle with dementia and Alzheimer's.
He was born to the late Albert and Annie Brandenberger on Aug. 19, 1943, in Denton, Texas, where he was a member of Blue Mound United Methodist Church in his childhood and again in his later years in life. After graduating from high school, Jim attended Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, where he pursued a degree in business administration.
He was a former student of the Fightin' Texas Aggie class of 1969, a member of the 12th Man Foundation, a Fightin' Texas Aggie Band parent and supporter, and, of course, an avid Texas A&M football fan, holding season tickets for more than 20 years.
During Jim's life, he was a tobacco sales representative for RJR Reynolds Tobacco and known to all his customers as "The Winston Man." After 34 years with the company, Jim retired and focused on his love of golf, daily "tea talks" with his friends at the local Kettle, and his passion for woodworking. During his retirement, he began a craft business with his wife, Linda, LBJ Designs, known for their Texas A&M crafts, most notably, the "fishing bear."
Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Annie.
He is survived by his wife, Linda Sausley Brandenberger of Ada, formerly of Sanger and Bryan, Texas; brother and sister-in-law, Albert "Ray" and Bettie Brandenberger of Sanger; daughter Tamara "Tami" Brandenberger and partner, Linda, of Austin, Texas; son and daughter-in-law, Samuel and Sabrina Behrens of Richmond, Texas; daughter and son-in-law, Sausley and Jeremy Kraft of Ada; grandchildren Lilly and Simon Anderson, Lauren and Kyle Taylor, Kolt Kovacs, Trinity Kraft and Damien Stacy; and great-grandson Kannon McDaris-Langford.
Visitation will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Hillier Funeral Home in Bryan, Texas.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Hillier Funeral Home. Burial will be at Rest Ever Memorial Park in Bryan.
It was the longtime wish of Jim's to be buried in his beloved Aggieland so he could hear the boom of the cannon each time Texas A&M scored; now he has the best seat in the house.
Pallbearers for Jim are Samuel Behrens, Jeremy Kraft and Simon Anderson, with honorary pallbearers Kyle Taylor and Kolt Kovacs.
Memorials and tributes can be made to Hillier Funeral Home of Bryan, 2301 E. 29th St., Bryan, TX 77802, or donations can be made to Alzheimer's disease research in memory of our Jim.
