Obituary of Brandon Michael Del Re
Brandon Michael Del Re
March 20, 1987 – April 23, 2023
Tragically, on Sunday, April 23, 2023, Brandon moved on to a better world, one that is free of the burdens that he endured on this earth. Cherished son of Sharon Vallelunga Del Re, his father, Russell (Brigetta) Del Re, brothers Derek Del Re (Ft. Lauderdale, FL), Michael (Olivia) Del Re, Garrett Del Re, and his beloved, Kristen Stash, loving grandson of Judith (late Hugo) Del Re and Sebastian (late Marge) Vallelunga. He is also survived by two nephews, loving aunts, uncles and cousins, and special cousins Samantha, Marissa, and Marc. Brandon was born on March 20, 1987 and completed his entire primary education in the Upper St. Clair School District, graduating with honors in June of 2005. Brandon was a proud
member of the varsity football team, competing for WPIAL Championships in both 2003 and 2004, and the varsity basketball team, that secured the WPIAL 4-AAAA Championship in February 2005. He began his collegiate experience at Grove City College during 2005-2006 as freshman while being a member of the football team, before moving on to Robert Morris University, where he earned his BS in Business Finance in 2010. Brandon experienced a successful employment career, working in the field in the construction industry, while still completing his college education. He continued on with accounting work at Fed Ex Ground and P.J. Dick, Incorporated. Brandon also worked in the dining industry for several years at Stonepepper’s Grille and 131 East in Carnegie. He had a tremendous work ethic and was continually striving for entrepreneurial success, brainstorming ideas for inventions, real estate investments, and construction projects. Brandon had many friends in his life and that is a testament of the truly amazing man that he was. His compassion for others, his kindness, and his big heart made everyone who met him care for him. Beneath his 6’2” frame, he was a teddy bear who would give you the shirt off his back. Brandon loved golf, music, movies, a good cigar, good food and drink, and he was never shy about expressing his opinions regarding the state of the world today. He loved playing with his nephews, Dominic and Vinny, and family was very important to him. He traveled out of state multiple times to attend various rock concerts, among them Guns ‘n Roses and Pearl Jam, and locally, he loved Donnie Iris and the Cruisers. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him, but we must all remember that his pain and suffering are gone and he is at peace.
Friends and family will be received on Thursday, April 27, 2023 from 3:00 - 8:00 PM, at the Warchol Funeral Home, Inc., 3060 Washington Pike, Bridgeville (412-221-3333).
