Brandon Lee White, 21, Kokomo, passed away at 4:12 a.m. Thursday, June 29, 2017, in Jasper County. He was born Jan. 18, 1996, in Kokomo, to Neal and Teresa (Kinsey) White.
After Brandon graduated from Kokomo High School, he attended Indiana University Bloomington. Brandon was a co-founder of Yamily Creative Company in Bloomington. He went on to pursue his passion of videography in California and was living his dream as a freelance artist for many other artists and musicians. Brandon was a member of the MIA Dance Crew and worked very hard to perfect his dancing. He was also very talented in sports such as basketball, soccer and wrestling. Brandon also enjoyed camping, boating, hiking and skateboarding.
Family was everything to Brandon. He loved his brothers, Kyle, Mitchell and Blake very much. They were more than brothers, they shared the same spirit. Brandon was a magnetic person. Everyone loved him and wanted to be around him. He was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. Brandon had countless friends and touched so many people. His smile will be unforgettable to all who knew him.
A true artist of life, Brandon will always be a student of the universe. His desire to learn about himself and the world around him guided "B" to the most challenging and rewarding corners of self-awareness, spirituality and creativity. Because he lived every day like it was his last, he left this world when he was on top of it, self-actualizing, happy and at peace, and left us with a legacy that will live on forever. Only days before his passing he wrote, "I want to inspire people to learn about themselves and be confident in who they are."
