Brandon Pollet, a loving husband, father, and son, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2022 at the age of 33 after a long, courageous battle due to complications from the Covid-19 vaccine. He was a native of LaPlace and a current resident of Ponchatoula.
He is survived by his loving wife Jessica Granier Pollet, their beautiful daughter, Madison, his parents, Randy and Yvonne Pollet, siblings, Jennifer Mack (Cory) and Danielle Faherty (Jason), and his nieces and nephews, Emily, Andrew, Miley, and Beau. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and a host of friends. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Joseph and Jean Pollet and Wesley and Vivian St. Pierre.
Brandon was a dedicated Shell employee for 7 years where he worked as an Instrument Mechanic. He also owned Louisiana Groundskeeping for over 10 years where he provided lawn care and landscaping throughout the River Parishes. For years, Brandon had a dream of building a greenhouse to grow and sell wasabi. He traveled to St. Croix to take classes at the University of the Virgin Islands to further his knowledge of aquaponic farming and he dedicated a large portion of his time to pursuing this dream through research, designing, and building. When he put his heart into something, there were no limits to what he would accomplish.
Some of his other interests included building, cooking, grilling/smoking meats, traveling, beekeeping, pranks, gag gifts, rescuing animals in need, craft beer, and squirrel hunting (even if he wasn’t very good). He was an adventurous person who always wanted to experience new places, loved trying new foods, and was always up for a hot wing challenge. Among many things, he will be remembered for his ability to make friends with anyone, his sense of humor, his passion, and his kind, loving heart. Even though Brandon was taken too soon, he lived an extraordinary life surrounded by people who adored him.
Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate Brandon’s life on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at Leitz-Eagan Funeral Home, 4747 Veterans Memorial Blvd. Metairie, LA. Visitation will be held from 4PM – 7PM with a remembrance service to begin at 6:30PM. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, February 3, 2022 at St. Charles Borromeo Church, 13396 River Rd, Destrehan, LA. Visitation will be held from 10AM – 11AM with a funeral Mass to begin at 11AM. Interment will follow at St. Charles Borromeo Cemetery.
In the words of his widow: "If other people would have spoken up, maybe your outcome would have been different. But, now we will use your story to help many others and hopefully change their outcome."
