He was born Friday, December 2, 1994 in Sumner County, Tennessee, the son of Daniel Tidwell of Lafayette and the late Penny Hall Tidwell. In addition to his mother, he was also preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, L.C. and Della Hall, and paternal grandfather, Bobby Tidwell. He was a member of the Willard Missionary Baptist Church and a rising sophomore at Red Boiling Springs High School where he played football as an offensive and defensive lineman for the Red Boiling Springs Bulldogs. His coach said he was the ideal player – big in size, he moved well and was one of the strongest and most physical players on the team. Brandon was a good young man.
