Braedon was born June 28, 1997, in Union City. He was a member of Second Baptist Church where he was active in the youth group and youth praise band. Involved in missions, he traveled to Puerto Rico and twice to Honduras and participated in disaster cleanups in Moore, Okla., Metropolis, Ill., Phil Campbell, Ala., and on the Gulf coast after Hurricane Katrina.
He had completed his junior year at Union City High School, where he was in the marching band, concert band, symphonic band and jazz band and served on the Leadership Committee for the band. He had recently made a 32 on the ACT and was planning to attend the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where he wanted to major in mechanical engineering and then attend seminary. Braedon’s life was Christ-centered, having a servant’s heart. His passion was to be a witness to people about his faith and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
He is survived by his parents, Karyn (Stephens) and Chaco Hill of Union City and Matt and Tina Barnett of Martin; two sisters, Olivia Hill of Union City and Brittany Barnett of Martin; two brothers, Brennan Barnett of Union City and Chaeton Hill of Martin; his grandparents, Sam and Judy Stephens of Union City, Bill and Brenda Barnett of Obion, Marianne Martinez of Camden and Jerry and Fran Morehead of Martin; his great-grandmother, Lucille Gray of Obion; his aunts and uncles, Allison and Chris Butner of Union City, John and Cindy Evans of Arlington and Kip and Jennifer Barnett of Nashville; and his girlfriend, Jordan Jurgiel of Union City.
