Brandon Michael Click 1977-2014

ASHLAND — Brandon Michael Click, 37, passed away Monday, June 30, 2014, after an extended illness.

Brandon was born Feb. 28, 1977, in Columbus, Ohio. He had been residing with his beloved mother and caregiver, Melinda McKenzie Click, in Ashland, and was a former resident of Louisville.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Carl E. Click, Amy McKenzie and Robert H. McKenzie.    

He graduated from Paul G. Blazer High School and attended Marshall University, where he studied photography, his favorite pastime, in addition to his love for film, music and attending concerts. He was an accomplished photographer, having lived and worked as a set photographer for the film “Things Behind the Sun” via his cousin, Allison Anders, and had Showtime credits in film as well as publications such as People magazine, the New York Times and US Weekly. Brandon had a wonderful sense of humor and an adventurous spirit and was an avid traveler throughout his young life. He visited many states, in addition to London, England, for both work, film and musical interests. He was also instrumental in the years prior to his illness in helping set up the Grayson Gallery & Art Center, both as a hardworking volunteer who helped with monthly art shows, as well as a participating and award-winning artist.

Besides his mother, Brandon is survived by his father, Dan Click; his stepmother, Mindy Woods-Click; a stepsister, Elizabeth Woods; a stepbrother, Rob Woods II; grandparents Janet L. Click and Dr. and Mrs. Malcolm H. King of Ashland; and special aunts, uncles, cousins and many dear friends.  

There is also quite a body of his artwork and photography that survives this young man, and a special presentation of his works is planned in the future. His art may be seen on his Facebook page — Brandon Click. A private family service and celebration of Brandon’s life was in Ashland.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent in his honor to the Grayson Gallery & Art Center Inc., 760 Bucksaw Junction, Grayson, KY 41143.
