Edwin W. Sykes, Sr.
Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home


Edwin went to his heavenly home on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at the age of 70. He was a lifelong resident of Holden, LA. Edwin retired from Exxon Mobil after many years of service. He was a true jack of all trades and enjoyed taking on new challenges. Edwin had a kind heart, who never asked for anything, and always more than willing to lend a helping hand. He had a magnetic personality who loved to make anyone smile or laugh with his quick wit. Above all else, he adored his family and treasured the time that he spent with them. Edwin leaves a large legacy behind and will be deeply missed by all who loved him.

Edwin is survived by his adoring wife, Tina Oliphant; sons, Eddie Sykes Jr (Mona) and Steven Sykes (Lacey); step-children, Kristina Fletcher and Wilfred “Will” Fletcher; brothers, Jesse Sykes (Beverly), Ronald Sykes (Brenda), Vernon Sykes (Lynn), and Leland Sykes (Lana); grandchildren, Devin Sykes (Ann Marie), Jade Sykes, Kyler Sykes, Lila Sykes, Everett Sykes, and Anadelle Sykes; step-grandchildren, Dane Lee Wilkinson, Heather Sisemore (Chris), Carey “MC” Hutchinson Jr (Kayla); great-granddaughter, Chloie Sykes; and step-great-grandchildren, Elliot and Madeline Delaune, and Ryker Sisemore.

He is preceded in death by his parents, J.L and Ruby Sykes; and an infant sister, Violet Sykes.

Thompson Funeral Home, Hammond, on Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Visitation will resume on Friday, September 13, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until the Celebration of Life Service at 12:00 p.m. Bro.
