Victor Lafayette grew up on Sol Legare Road, just across the inlet from Bowen’s Island. His childhood friends gave him the nickname “Goat.” Growing up on the water, he took to fishing, crabbing, and oystering naturally. At the age of nine, he began selling his catch to May Bowen, owner of Bowen’s Island Restaurant.
