Was his father's name Mark or Forrest? I'm trying to find out if he is related to a good friend of mine, and I don't want to directly inquire of the family until I KNOW he is.

Brandon was a close friend to my roomate. Brandon was, and still is loved, by those who knew him. Not a day goes by that at some point his name is brought up. To have someone think of you that much, u must have been a TRUE friend. Over 500 people at his funeral. R.I.P Brandon Lee White

Dead are Brandon Lee White, 26, of Broken Arrow
The Tulsa collision happened about 1 a.m. Tuesday, Officer Jason Willingham said.
Police said witnesses reported that White's motorcycle appeared to be going at least 120 mph when it crashed into the truck on U.S. 169 south of 81st Street.
Police said the truck driver reported hearing a bump and then seeing debris from the motorcycle going past him. When he managed to pull over, he saw that a man was embedded in the back of his trailer, police said.
White was dead at the scene.

Please accept my condolences and prayers as well. Any death is tragic, no matter how "stupid" the person was being at the time.
Yes, he knew simply getting on a motorcycle in traffic would increase his chances of dying tremendously over being in a car, which is already the most dangerous activity the majority of us do each day.
Still, he was young, and it's been proven young people simply do not have the same physiological brain chemistry as more mature folks, so it's not entirely their fault for making stupid decisions.
I was taught from an early age that I would die the moment I sat on a motorcycle, and at nearly 40 years old, I still am terrified when I see them. However, I'm lucky to be alive after some of the stupid things I did when I was this young man's age.
For those of you criticizing, stop for a moment and recall something you did as a youngster that could have gotten you killed.
Let's all pray that this tragic loss is not in vain, and that some other young people will be more careful as a result of the publicity surrounding this story.

Stupidity kills more people every year than anything else.

Hopefully his death will serve as a reminder for other kids not to do something like that.
THINK before you act or it may very well be the last act you perform.

Just because a person was speeding, no matter how fast... it doesn't mean that they deserve to die. You are cold and heartless. How rude for you to post such things calling Brandon stupid as to laugh in the faces of his friends and family. Accidents happen, we all suffer loss at some point in our lives. This is a TRAGEDY no matter how you look at it. How would you feel if this was your son/brother/father/uncle/cousi n/nephew/friend??? You are only showing your ignorance and hate. I would be ashamed to know you much less be a friend or relative of yours. May God Bless you, you clearly need it more than any of us who morn Brandon.
R.I.P. Brandon until we are with you in Heaven

You are an ass. You should be ashamed at stupid your thoughtless comment is/was. The family of this young life is in mourning a life that will never be again. Stupid is your comment without thought or regard of someone else' pain. May you never experience their pain or anguish because it is obvious that you couldnt handle it - We all pray for them and for you stupid...?

This just goes to show that none of us knows when our time will come. Better to establish a relationship with our Savior now than later.

John 11:25-26 - Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die."
