I very much regret this huge loss and feeling the pain his family are going through, I want to share the hope that very soon "will be a resurrection from God", as the Bible tells us in Acts 24:15. Courage and strength to all your family at this painful time. www.JW.org

Kaye and Family, I am honored to have known Brandon and enjoyed his company many times over the years at SFdS. I am grateful to both him and you for your gift of friendship to me and my family, and especially for the generosity and kindness you constantly exhibited toward my children. I will never forget Brandon's engaging grin and that mischievous twinkle in his eye! May God envelope all of you in his peace.

Though I only met Brandon once, I know he must have been a wonderful man to have raised such an amazing family. A donation was made in Brandon's honor to The Lustgarten Foundation, where 100% of the donations go to pancreatic cancer research. Much love to you all. If others would like to donate, you can do so here: http://www.lustgarten.org/

Kaye and family, We are so grateful that Brandy came to our house last year for a visit after he received a card from us giving him our love and prayers of support. His first comment when we opened the door was "I just wanted y'all to know I was still here". He sat with us for an hour or so and we had the best visit ever! He always had the best stories and oh, that grin... Brandy truly fought the good fight, he finished the race, he kept the faith. His legacy lives on! God bless all of you.

Jim and Sharon Shanahan, Houston, TX

Kaye and Family---we are so sorry for your loss. We have so many wonderful memories of your family at St. Francis de Sales. You all served the church so well--your love for your parish was admired by so many of us. I (Amy) had the opportunity to teach 6 of the Rasch children in Kindergarten and I quickly became friends of the Rasch family. Brandon always supported me and the school in so many ways. Your family became such role models that St. Francis School could be proud of. Please know that our prayers are with you and yours.

David and Amy Sitz, Sugar Land, Tx.

Brandon (Brandy) and I were joined at the hip from 1st grade thru 8th grade. Our dads had gone to Lanier together. We competed in everything - sports (even), making money (he won), girls (ask them). We went roller skating at St Luke's gym every Fri and Sat night, went bowling at Lamar Lanes every chance we got, played little league baseball together, learned the facts of life together, were altar boys together, rode the bus downtown for hogies at Woolworths and movies at the Metropolitan, Majestic, and Lowes together, made motorbikes with our bicycles and the engines from our dad's lawnmowers together, ice skated at Winterland together, swam in Buffalo Bayou together, went to the Alabama theater fun club together, played football, basketball, baseball, and ran track together at St. Anne School. In the 9th grade we went our separate ways - he got into horses and cowboying, and playing the guitar in a band, and I kept playing sports, eventually going to a different high school. For the next forty years we rarely saw each other except for a couple of reunions, but about 10yrs ago we started to communicate pretty regularly again, and it was like picking up exactly where we had left off. As I often told him - you can always make new friends, but you can never make old ones. Brandon was the real deal, a genuine Texan. Opinionated more often than not, but always fair. I never wondered where I stood with him. I loved him like a brother, and will miss him greatly, but I take solace in knowing that I will pick up with him again in the future. Happy trails, my friend - may you now rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord.

Mark Stamey, Houston, TX

The Rasch family will always have a special place in my heart! May God bless each of you during this difficult time. Pat Fowler

Brandy was a true friend, and a true source of inspiration, He was competitive in everything he did, and made me want to be a better me just to half way keep up.

I was stunned tonight to hear the news of Brandon's passing. Brandon gave me my first job after moving to Houston in June 1983. I had the privilege of working with him, Rocky, Randy and Arnan in the family businesses for four years. I learned a lot from that crazy guy. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him. My deepest sympathies to the entire Rasch clan.

Karin L. Shepherd, Pearland, Texas

Brandy, may have lost the battle, but he certainly conquered the challenges of life! What a fulfilling, productive, fun life he lived! I know his greatest achievements were marrying Kaye and together producing and raising their children, which will carry on his legacy for generations to come. Rest in God's loving arms now, Brandy, job well done!

Drew Crispin, Houston, Texas

I met Mr. Rasch through his son Shane when I was a high schooler. He was a great man that never hesitated giving us youngsters a hard time knowing that it would serve us some good down the road. This held true for as long as I knew Mr. Rasch; even as a grew older I still sought his council not just for the hard time but for the knowledge that was intertwined within it. He was a great man whose verve and excellence will not be eclipsed. Traits his family exude to this day. It was a pleasure knowing Mr. Rasch and I look forward to the continued relationships with his children. May he rest in peace. Respectfully

Cameron Jamison, Fulshear, TX

I met Brandon via email and telephone through his friend, my cousin, Vincent Filippone. We had pancreatic cancer in common. Brandon fought the good fight, knowing full well, as we patients know from the time we are diagnosed, that in the end it will get us.. He was in pain from before he was diagnosed, suffered through the awful effects and side effects of chemo for a cancer that wouldn't respond to treatment. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know he will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him, especially his family. I find consolation in knowing he is free of pain.. He now has the rest and peace he deserves.

Jennie Leman, Houston, TX

After 2 years of an incredibly kick ass fight against pancreatic cancer, Brandon Rasch passed away on Monday October 20, 2014 in Houston, Texas. He is survived by his two older brothers, his wonderful wife and 7 children.

Brandon was a conscientious individual with uncompromisingly high ethical standards; he was completely loyal to family, community and professional commitments. Brandon attended St. Anne's Catholic Grade School and St. Thomas High School, which not only reinforced his family's Catholic upbringing, but was also where he developed friendships that would last a life time. He continued his academic career at Texas A&M University before transferring to Sam Houston State University where he received his undergraduate degree in accounting. In between a fully loaded academic schedule, you could find Brandon out water skiing with friends, working on the family ranch or hunting. While working during the day, he continued his academic career with night classes at South Texas College of Law. He obtained a Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1976 and passed the bar that same year. He went on to open Rasch & Rasch Law Firm with his brother Rocky. But his entrepreneurship didn't end there. He also co-owned Rasch Graphics Services with his other brother Randy, where he served as the Vice President and Corporate Counsel. As a 5th generation Houstonian, he was active in his community. Brandon was a member of the State Bar of Texas, Houston Bar Association, Harris County Precinct Chairman, member of the Texas Air National Guard and board member of multiple community associations. To say Brandon could multi-task would be an understatement. However, he did have a secret weapon up his sleeve, the lovely Kaye Rasch, his wife.

Brandon and Kaye spent 35 wonderful years of marriage together. They were blessed with 7 fantastic children, five boys and two girls: Shane, Corey, Robyn, Leslie, Eric, Austin and Travis, also known as SCARLET. Brandon was a true family man and he loved spending weekends up at the 6R Ranch with them. Brandon and Kaye enjoyed exploring the country with their 7 kids every summer, family-van style, and taking winter ski trips in Colorado, Wyoming, and Canada. He made a lesson out of everything, taking any opportunity to impart his experience and knowledge to his children. He provided above and beyond for his children, but when they’d cross the line, asking for too much, he frequently reminded them, “They sell that to you too you know!” Beyond teaching the value of a dollar, Brandon taught many life skills to his kids at the 6R Ranch. As Augustus McCrae said in Brandon's favorite all-time movie, Lonesome Dove, “It ain’t dying I’m talking about, it’s living. I doubt it matters where you die, but it matters [how] you live.” Brandon lived.

Brandon will be greatly missed by his family, friends and community. His legend will live on in us all.

I was stunned tonight to hear the news of Brandon's passing. Brandon gave me my first job after moving to Houston in June 1983. I had the privilege of working with him, Rocky, Randy and Arnan in the family businesses for four years. I learned a lot from that crazy guy. He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him. My deepest sympathies to the entire Rasch clan.

Brandy, may have lost the battle, but he certainly conquered the challenges of life! What a fulfilling, productive, fun life he lived! I know his greatest achievements were marrying Kaye and together producing and raising their children, which will carry on his legacy for generations to come. Rest in God's loving arms now, Brandy, job well done!

Kaye, our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. As you know Brandon had known each other for over 50 years and although separated by many miles we remained close, sharing our life adventures. He was always there for me to offer guidance and support. I will always be eternally grateful for his friendship. Although a very private person he was always quick to share with me how blessed he felt he was to have found you and how proud he was of all your children. He was a great man and will be missed by many! He is now in God's hands. May he rest in peace.

I met Mr. Rasch through his son Shane when I was a high schooler. He was a great man that never hesitated giving us youngsters a hard time knowing that it would serve us some good down the road. This held true for as long as I knew Mr. Rasch; even as a grew older I still sought his council not just for the hard time but for the knowledge that was intertwined within it. He was a great man whose verve and excellence will not be eclipsed. Traits his family exude to this day. It was a pleasure knowing Mr. Rasch and I look forward to the continued relationships with his children. May he rest in peace. Respectfully

Cameron Jamison, Fulshear, TX

I met Brandon via email and telephone through his friend, my cousin, Vincent Filippone. We had pancreatic cancer in common. Brandon fought the good fight, knowing full well, as we patients know from the time we are diagnosed, that in the end it will get us.. He was in pain from before he was diagnosed, suffered through the awful effects and side effects of chemo for a cancer that wouldn't respond to treatment. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know he will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him, especially his family. I find consolation in knowing he is free of pain.. He now has the rest and peace he deserves.
