Obituary

At 12:55pm on Tuesday, December 7th Wyatt was carried home by those that passed before him, surrounded by his loving family and friends.

Nathanael “Wyatt” Jones was born on May 31st , 2007, to his adoring parents, Abe and Veronica Jones. An inspiration from the beginning, it was clear that Wyatt’s purpose was to show us what it means to love wholeheartedly. When he entered any new school, his teachers took to describing him as one of the brightest parts of their day with a contagious smile and laugh. Wyatt, often called our Hobbit, loved to eat. Fruit snacks, fresh fruit and Poptarts were among his favorites. He loved the water but hated the sand. He loved to watch his favorite TV shows like Max and Ruby and Dora’s Pirate Piggies. Even though Wyatt was taken from us much too soon, he was able to teach us so much in such a short amount of time, namely that you can communicate without ever saying a word.

Wyatt is survived by his parents, Abe and Veronica Jones; brothers Collin, Riley, and Gavin; grandparents Kathy Stephens, Liz Jones, Scott (Debbie) Jones; aunts and uncles Mike and Carol Smallwood, Brad and Molly Wilhelmson, Nick and Suzanna Jones; and a loving group of family, friends, and teachers. He was preceded in death by his Grandad Arthur Stephens Jr, Great Grandmother Inez Stephens, Great Grandparents Chuck and Millie Rhomberg.
