April 19, 1990 - January 25, 2023

Brandon Kevin Gretz, 32, of Benton, Arkansas passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 in Benton.

Brandon was born on April 19, 1990 in Little Rock to Kevin and Ann Gretz.

Brandon graduated from Benton High School in 2008. He went on to earn an Associate Degree in applied science, diesel and heavy equipment from Oklahoma State University at Okmulgee.

For the next ten years Brandon worked in many different facets of the heavy equipment industry. He specialized in hydraulics, electrical and natural gas processing.

These skills allowed Brandon to achieve his dream of opening his own company, BG Diesel, in 2020. His business served a wide range of clients in the Arkansas construction industry and was still expanding at the time of his passing.

Brandon enjoyed spending time with his family and rooting for the Green Bay Packers. He particularly loved playing and completing projects with his six nephews, who cherished every minute with their "Unc Unc". He was also an active supporter of his nephew's school and sports programs.

Brandon is survived by his parents, Kevin and Ann of Benton; his sisters, Dayna Christian (Gordon) of Benton and Tamara Pudinas (Kyle) of Benton; his grandmothers, Eileen Gretz of Manitowoc, Wisconsin and Janet Brockhoff of Manitowoc, Wisconsin and his six nephews, Logan, Charlie and Austin Pudinas and Barrett, Mitchell and Carter Christian all of Benton.

Brandon was preceded in death by his uncle, Dean Benthien of Mishicot, Wisconsin and his grandfathers, Kenneth Gretz of Two Creeks, Wisconsin and Melvin Brockhoff of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
