Andrew Monroe Lakin of Baton Rouge died January 25th at the age of 36. Visitation will be held at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 12369 LA-416, Lakeland, LA from 10 a.m. until the funeral service at 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 10. A reception will follow at the church Fellowship Hall. Andrew was a graduate of Redemptorist High School and attended Baton Rouge Community College. He was a Louisiana Golden Gloves Boxing Champion trained by Reverend Doyle Bennett, who treated Andrew like a son. Andrew was stricken with a mental illness at the age of 19, just as he was starting college. He faced his illness with dignity, bravery and a deep appreciation of his caregivers. He would want to thank all the people at Capital Area Human Services who administered his medication for the last 10 years. His fight is over. Hopefully, he has found the peace that was so painfully elusive during the latter half of his life. Andrew is survived in his immediate family by his mother, Darlene Moniotte Lakin, his father, Edward O. Lakin, Jr. and his brother, Matthew H. Lakin. He is also survived by his grandmother, Myra Moniotte, his uncles: Larry B. Lakin, Paul Perry, Jody Thibaut and Bobby Moniotte, and his aunts: Mary Perry, Teresa Moniotte, and Jeanene Thibaut. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to an organization that supports those with mental illness.
