Brayden Christopher Dreaden

November 29, 1999 — January 5, 2024

Waverly

Brayden Christopher Dreaden, 24, a beloved son, brother, and friend, passed away on January 5, 2024, leaving behind a trail of cherished memories and a void that can never be filled. Born on November 29, 1999, Brayden was a force of nature from the very beginning. His spirit was as wild and untamed as the Tennessee woods he grew up in. Brayden embodied the adventurous soul of someone who truly appreciated everything the outdoors had to offer.

Brayden found solace and joy operating heavy equipment and he had a natural talent for hunting and fishing, which became his favorite pastimes. As a self-employed heavy equipment operator, Brayden thrived in his profession. He had an innate understanding of machinery, effortlessly maneuvering heavy equipment as if they were extensions of his own being. His skill and dedication were evident in every project he took on, leaving a lasting impact on those he worked with. He was a kind soul who would do anything for anyone, stopping what he was doing to help a friend in need.

Brayden's untimely departure has left a profound void in the hearts of his loved ones. He is survived by his parents Michelle Dreaden Sanders and his father, Will Sanders, whose lives will never be the same without their beloved son. He also leaves to cherish his memory, one brother, Owen Sanders of Waverly, Maternal Grandparents, Kenneth and Pam Dreaden of Waverly, Maternal great-grandmother, June Dreaden of Waverly, Paternal Grandparents, Larry and Mabel Sanders of Hurricane Mills, Aunt and Uncle, Brandi and Kevin Little and their daughters Hallie and Kinley Little of McEwen.
