Brandon Michael Boykin of Lafayette passed away on November 6, 2017, at the age of 33. Brandon was born in Lafayette, LA on September 7, 1984, the second eldest child to John and Mignon Boykin.
Brandon was an intelligent, courageous, creative and talented young man. Brandon was a skilled machinist and began his own car-detailing business, First Impressions. Brandon loved the thrill of riding his motorcycle and loved his Nissan 300ZX. He was a self-taught guitarist and highly skilled in martial arts. He enjoyed music, art, astronomy, and nutrition. He was fascinated by creation and the Creator. Friends called him Bruce- his nickname for his admiration of Bruce Lee. A kindred spirit, he had an affinity for children, a keen sense of humor, loved to laugh, loved philosophy, loved his family & friends, and loved to share the gospel of Jesus with others.
