Brison Vaughn, 23, of Mandan, passed away on October 27, 2022 after his battle with cancer.
Brison was born to Cristina Hillmer and Buddy Vaughn on May 4th, 1999. Brison grew up in Des Moines, IA, until his mom and stepdad, Collin, moved the family to Dallas Center, IA. As an adult he lived in Waukee until he moved to Mandan, ND in August of this year to be with his fiancee, Jessica Wing.
Brison was always cracking jokes and trying to make everyone laugh. Even while battling cancer, he found a way to lighten the mood with his jokes. He was always looking up dad jokes to pass along to us. He always had something "smart" to say. He was very quick witted in every conversation.
Although the last year and a half of his life, he battled his second go around with cancer, it was the happiest he's ever been. He got his wish to come true when he and two of his siblings were adopted by Collin Hillmer, their stepdad. It was something he and his siblings had waited a long time to have happen. He also found the love of his life, Jessica Wing. He was quite the gamer and loved his games and this is how he and Jessica met. She visited him and then when he went up to visit her, he asked her to marry him. The chaplain came down to his hospital room and married them hours before he passed.
Brison is survived by his wife, Jessica Wing; mother and father, Cristina and Collin Hillmer; siblings Catalina Vaughn, Troy Hillmer, Gavin Vaughn, Trinity Hillmer, and Grace Hillmer; and grandparents, Arlyn and Virginia Hillmer.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Albert and Terry Watson.
