Bryant Boyer-Killion

April 28, 1999 ~ December 21, 2020 (age 21)



Bryant John Boyer-Killion, 21, of Champaign passed away on Monday, December 21, 2020 at 2:45pm with his loving family and co-workers by his side. He was born in Urbana at Carle Hospital on April 28, 1999, the son of Anna Boyer-Killion and John Killion who both survive.

Bryant is survived by two sisters, Rylee Boyer-Killion who he referred to as his baby girl and Kattie Killion (St. Louis); brother Josh Killion (Champaign); niece Luna Killion; aunt Sarah Boyer (Champaign); grandparents Ronald and Sandra Boyer (Watseka) and Esther Boyer (Champaign); confirmation sponsor Mark Ahern (Naperville). He is proceeded in death by his paternal grandparents, Robert and Mary Killion of Cissna Park.

Bryant was a 2017 graduate of Centennial High School in Champaign. He took several classes at Parkland before landing a job in security at Carle Hospital. After starting as a part-time floater at many facilities, Bryant secured a full-time security position this year and worked primarily at the main hospital campus—a dream job that he absolutely loved.

Bryant loved to be active and outdoors. He played soccer for years with the Champaign Park District, baseball with the CU Kiwanis Little League, and was on the Centennial Archery team. He offered to volunteer at archery tournaments even after graduation. Bryant loved country music, tattoos, meeting new people, and he always had a twinkle in his eye and a joke to lighten the mood. He loved fishing, camping, playing video games, riding 4-wheelers and bikes, and spending time with his family and friends.

Due to Covid restrictions, services will be private. Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Champaign, Illinois 710 N. Neil St., Champaign, Illinois 61820 is assisting the family with the arrangements.
