He enjoyed Football, Basketball, Hunting, Fishing, and hanging out with his friends most of all. His passion was for his beloved Georgia Southern Eagles Football team. Brantley was a member of Woodlawn United Methodist Church and had a love for Jesus that shined every day. He was an organ donor and his family took the Honor Walk on Tuesday.
