Brandon ‘Big Sexy’ Perry


Brandon “Big Sexy” Perry, 29, of Cleveland, departed this life on Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021, at Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga.

Born on Nov. 19, 1991, to Jennifer Perry, he was a native and lifelong resident of Bradley County and was a 2010 graduate of Bradley County High School. He was a member of Waterville Baptist Church and most recently attended the Church at Grace Point  and was employed at H and K Perforated South.

Big Sexy, where do we begin? To know him was to love him. He touched so many people with his positive presence.

He loved anything Tennessee Vols, campfires, being with family and friends, and seeing the world with his fiancé! He was his mama’s heartbeat, his fiancé’s world, the best uncle, a leader, and a hero to many. He was a father figure to his brothers and an even better role model that would lead by example.

Brandon didn’t know any strangers. He would always make time to just stop and listen. His smile was infectious, and he would light up any room. He made such a positive impact on so many lives.

He was the ultimate decision-maker, the glue to his family, and always stood up for what he believed. The word "genuine" was created in his image.

He was a Bradley Central High School graduate, and he considered himself a Bear for life. He also graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in education and an associate’s degree in business.

There was never a dull moment with Brandon and this town will never be the same. Heaven is a much brighter place today because of you B. The Lord gained the best angel. With no doubt, you will be at the gates to greet us all. We all can’t wait to see you again!

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers: Jack Perry and Ernie Lawson Sr; grandmother, Cindy Rymer; Nanaw, Nancy Helton; and great-grandmother, Irene Kimsey.
