Brendan Michael Numedahl. A name known to many here at Iowa State University and back in his home town of Decorah, Iowa. Those who know his name would agree that there are a million ways to describe him, and the impact he had on those around him. To name a few: he was smart, devoted, and competitive in spirit. But above all else, Brendan was a friend. He became known as the person to turn to when in need. With the hopes and dreams of becoming a mechanical engineer, Brendan always had an eye looking to the future. A future that was laid at his feet, and he was more than willing to take that next step in his life. As Brendanâ€™s legacy is left behind, he continues to be an inspiration to everyone. The friend that he was will be remembered and will live on in the lives he touched.
