He is the beloved husband of Jami (Shorb) Bramhall; loving father of Ben Bramhall, Sam Bramhall, Sally Bramhall, Elizabeth Bramhall, and Buddy Bramhall; and loving brother of Chuck Bramhall and Cindy Bramhall Jenkins of Plymouth. Born in Plymouth on June 2, 1952 to the late Richard W. and Virginia (Phinney) Bramhall, he was educated in the Plymouth schools and managed to graduate from Plymouth – Carver High School. Wedgie owned and operated Bramhall's Country Store along with his family in the Chiltonville section of Plymouth.

He enjoyed fishing, lobstering, clamming, farming, photography, his tractor, his snowplow, and watching sunsets from his porch at Plymouth beach.
