Brandon Robert Gott, 47, of Liberty, Missouri, passed away Sept. 14, 2021, with his family by his side. He had the privilege of meeting his Savior, Jesus Christ, when he entered his heavenly home. Family is comforted knowing they will see him again one day, as will all those who have put their faith and trust in Jesus.
Brandon was born Sept. 29, 1973, in Kansas City, Missouri, to David and Dorthy Gott. He attended Tri-City Christian School and graduated in 1992. He then attended Bob Jones University and earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications in 1996. It was here that he met his wife, Lora. They married on Aug. 10, 1996, and had just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.
Brandon started his career the fall of 1996 at the Kansas City Police Department as a 911 call-taker, dispatcher then supervisor of the communications unit. In 2006 he was hired at Sprint using his 911 experience to streamline various telecommunication projects. After spending some time learning the art of roasting coffee, he decided to make a career change in 2011 and opened Barista de Casa Coffee Shop in downtown Liberty. He eventually opened a second location inside the Woodneath Library until the pandemic closed his doors the spring of 2020.
Brandon loved connecting people together. It was his passion and he was gifted in the area of networking. There is no doubt that there are many people in the community who have met because Brandon introduced and connected them. His life was spent helping people in many ways. At the coffee shops, he was able to minister to several people by listening to them, encouraging them and sharing the love of Christ. This was one of his greatest joys in life, to be used by God to help others and brighten their day.
Brandon is survived by his wife, Lora (Hendrix) Gott; children Trenton Michael Gott, Blake David Gott and Lily Kay Gott; mother Dorthy Gott; sister Michelle Davis (Paul) of Kansas City; brother Anthony Gott of Kansas City; and several loved nephews and nieces.
Brandon was preceded in death by his father, David Gott, and his grandparents.
