Brandon Cantu, 30, passed away on Tuesday, September 3, 2013, at Confluence Health, following an extended illness. He was born on February 17, 1983, at Mountain View, CA to Valentin Omar and Rosa Hilda (Mata) Cantu. As an infant, his family moved to Moses Lake. In October of 1992, he moved to Wenatchee.
