RIP AUSA Beranton J. Whisenant Jr.

RIP AUSA Beranton J. Whisenant Jr.
He was only 37. So sad.
I did not know him, but I heard he was a good guy. 
Please feel free to remember him in the comments.

What did he die of at such a young age?

The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. mourn the passing of our fraternity brother "BJ." "Goodwill is the Monarch of This House; Men enter, shake hands, exchange greetings, and depart friends..." For Alpha brothers who met BJ at the University of Florida, he arrived in Gainesville and immediately availed himself to the "House of Alpha."

He was a proud FAMU Rattler but quickly established a rapport with Alpha brothers enrolled in the UF College of Law and worked with other Alpha alumni brothers to select and initiate a new group of Alpha undergraduates on the campus of the University of Florida.

"College days swiftly pass, imbued with memories fond, and the recollection slowly fades away..." The Alpha Gator Nation recollects our time with BJ at FLORIDA, and extends our condolences to BJ's family.

Beranton worked diligently to help prepare and elevate more Black applicants to the South Florida bench. Through his previous work with the Judicial Diversity Initiative, he cared deeply about our community's progress in the profession and contributions to the community at large. This is a huge loss to our profession's leadership.

He was brilliant, funny, sweet, and a great guy. He was a true gentleman and had a wonderful mind. He was a sweet friend. I'm honored to have know him and so saddened that his wonderful journey was cut short. I pray for his family and fellow friends.
