Braeden Jamison Macdonald
Our beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson and friend, passed away peacefully at his home on April 17, 2021 surrounded by family. Braeden fought a courageous 2 ½ year battle with Osteosarcoma.
Braeden was born on July 11, 1998 in Provo, Utah to Troy Macdonald and Andra (Williams) Trammell. Braeden lived in Provo, UT, Rexburg ID, and lived the last 10 years of his life in Evanston, Wyoming. Braeden has made many cherished friends everywhere he has lived.
Braeden’s first word was ball and he loved playing ball! Braeden loved all sports, but he excelled in baseball and golf. Braeden earned numerous awards in both sports, and loved being with his teammates and coaches. He made priceless memories with his golf and baseball buddies. Braeden graduated from Evanston High School in 2016, and then joined the golf team at Central Wyoming Community College.
Braeden loved spending time with his family and friends. He loved to camp, fish, and hunt. We have great memories of times spent together at Christmas Meadows and Flaming Gorge.
Braeden had a bright, infectious smile and a great sense of humor. Braeden loved to laugh and make those around him laugh as well. Braeden was a perfectionist and expected perfection from himself. He was also a fierce competitor. This competitive attitude carried him though his battle with cancer. He fought with courage, determination and dignity through the many painful challenges he faced. Along with the challenges came many tender mercies from the Lord.
We will miss Braeden’s laugh, his domination on the links and his tender heart. We look forward to a joyous reunion with him.
Braeden is survived by his parents Troy and Priya Macdonald, Aaron and Andra Trammell. His brothers that he loved so much: Jacob, Jordan, Josh, and Joseph (Teneshia) Trammell, Seth and Derek Macdonald, and Balin, Wade and Maximus Macdonald. Grandparents Stan Macdonald, Richard and Camille Williams, Ed and Sue Trammell, and Mohan and Romy Sundareson. Nieces and nephews: Lola Johnson, River, Journee, Oaklee, and Lakota Cruz Trammell, Braeden is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
