Brandon David Schiff was a free spirit that loved life and possessed an innate ability to bring warmth and cheer to those around him.
He lit up a room and his sense of humor was second only to his giving heart. He graced this earth for just 21 years. The last several years he battled with addiction. That addiction took his life. We know he would want to use his experience to help others. Brandon wanted to be a history teacher and high school coach. He wanted to help steer kids away from drugs through his own experiences.
He was attending Darton College in Albany. He attended South Forsyth High School in Cumming, Ga., where he played hockey and lacrosse. He attended Parkway Church and was involved in the high school youth group. He will be greatly missed by his family, friends, and girlfriend.
He now watches over his mother, Sherry Ajluni and stepfather Rick Ajluni, his father Jon Schiff and stepmother Bethany Schiff, his brothers, Ryan, Brett, Cameron and Bryce Schiff and David Ajluni, his sisters Katie and Christina Ajluni, his girlfriend Lauren Wolfman, a large extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and many friends. His maternal grandmother and great grandmother passed away earlier this year. Together forever in peace they will be.
Funeral services for Brandon will be held at 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 2, 2010 in the Chapel of McDonald & Son Funeral Home, 150 Sawnee Drive in Cumming, with Reverends Dr. Martin Lifer and Bill Ford officiating. The family will receive friends at 4 p.m. the day of the service. Burial will be private.
Memorial contributions may be made to The Anchorage of Albany, a Christian non-profit rehabilitation program that provides free services to men recovering from addiction. They have an incredible program and we thank them for all they did.
