Brandon Dainis Ziemelis, 38, of Lincoln, passed away on November 2nd, 2020. He was born on October 15th, 1982 to Sharol D. Murrell and Ilmars Ziemelis.
He was a loving father and son. The pride of his life were his daughters and family above all. He loved collecting antiques; he always knew how to find valuable and beautiful items, and dreamed of opening an antique shop. He had a kind and generous personality, and a smile that lit up the room. Brandon was a unique individual that could be easy friends with anyone, and held no judgement or ill will in his heart.
Brandon was a plumber, taught by his father and recently wanted to open a plumbing business for ex-convicts. As a former convict himself, he easily sympathized and understood the struggle of working after incarceration and hoped to help others in the same situation.
He is survived by his parents, Sharol D. Murrell and Ilmars Ziemelis; step-father Doug Murrell, step-mother Donna Ziemelis, his paternal grandmother, Austra Ziemelis, half-sister Sylvia Holloway, step-sister Roxana Woodcock, step-brothers Alex Murrell and Ben Murrell, daughters, Samara Ross-Ziemelis and Persephone Mulske, the lifelong friend and mother of Samara, Megan Ross, as well as countless cousins and friends.
A memorial will be held from 1 pm to 4 pm at his family’s home, 7041 Colby Street, Lincoln, on Saturday, November 7th. Our family kindly asks you to consider donating to Shatterproof, a nonprofit organization that focuses on ending the stigma and struggle of drug abuse.
