Brayden Douglas Donahue of Braintree passed away unexpectedly on September 20, 2022. He was 18 years old.
Brayden was born on November 17, 2003 in Weymouth, Massachusetts. He was a recent graduate of Weymouth High School Class of 2022. He was currently preparing to start his career as an electrician in Local 103, following in the footsteps of his late grandfather, John Leahy. He was so proud of his accomplishments and excited for this next chapter.
In his short life, Brayden loved so many and was loved by so many more. He made a lasting impression on everyone who was lucky enough to know him. Brayden was happiest when spending time with his brothers and listening to music. He was a talented artist and loved to draw. We will see Brayden everywhere, but especially when we come across his favorite color, red.
Brayden loved his family deeply. He is survived by his parents, Andrea Leahy Marobella and Jimmy Donahue; his stepfather, Jamie Marobella; his brothers, Adam Donahue and Liam Gerstell who looked up to him so much. He also leaves his beloved grandparents Sandy and Doug O’Brien.
