June 27, 2018 – July 29, 2022
at the age of 4 years:     
      All are welcome to attend Jaxon’s celebration of life on Sunday, Sept. 4 at 2:00 in the Gazebo at Prestige Harbourfront Resort

Jaxon Conrad Martin Langdon, age 4, passed away on Friday July 29, 2022, at 12:09 am safely cradled in Mother’s Arms, at BC Children’s Hospital, Vancouver BC.

Jaxon was born on Tuesday June 27, 2018, at 2:32 am, to parents Kayla Butts and Tyrell Langdon. Jaxon was curious, joyful, and loved getting into mischief! His favorite show was Word Party, and his favorite things to do were to spend time in his swing and being cuddled. Ruger, Meggy and Blue (Jaxon’s very own Paw Patrol) watched over Jaxon and were never to far from his side.

Jaxon was a rock star and was destined to be a huge personality! Jaxon offered to the world his unconditional love. Jaxon laughed and smiled, roared, and snorted, bringing joy and happiness to everyone he touched, in person or virtually through the online community that watched him grow up over these 4 years. Jaxon gave us a lifetime of love during his short time on earth.

Jaxon is survived by his Momma, Kayla, and Dad Tyrell. Gramma Brandi and Grampa Rod Butts and Uncle Brody. His Nanny Diane and G-Pop Rick Wirth. His Great Uncle Ken and Aunt Shannon Wirth, Great Uncle Rich Wirth and cousins Madison, Jacob, Bailey, and Hunter; Great Grandmother Mari-Anne Butts (preceded by Great Grampa Rod Butts). Grandparents Bruce and Marianne Langdon, Aunt Tara and Uncle Trevor Peterson and cousins Macaela and Michael; and numerous great-great aunts and uncles, cousins, and other relatives and friends who love Jaxon very much.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff of the BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and The Canuck’s Children’s Hospice for their incredible care provided to Jaxon and the entire family; and a very special thank you to Dr. Erika Henkelman for being there from the beginning to the very end. Jaxon had an amazing team of doctors and nurses, a special thank you to nurses Rachel, Katie, and Nico. Thank you to all of Jaxon’s home nurses and a special thank you to Shawna, for being a part of our family and loving and caring for Jaxon over the years.

We know that in Jaxon’s short life, although he was not able to go out and about and meet many people in person, he has touched so many lives. Jaxon was able to have some of wishes come true in the months before his passing, sitting in a firetruck to going in helicopter, a special thank you to Tyler Stevenson and the Salmon Arm Fire department for embracing Jaxon and making his wishes come true. Thank you to the almost 300 people that sent Jaxon Birthday Cards for his 4th birthday, each will be a treasured keepsake.

In the days coming, information will be posted for a Community Celebration of Life. The family asks that this be open to the community to join family and friend in celebrating this little boy. As well as to the all the people on his Team Jaxon Facebook group, that have supported, prayed, laughed, and cried along his entire journey.

A gift of love may be sent in Jaxon’s name to the Canuck’s Place Children’s Hospice, the Shuswap Children’s Foundation or My NICU Family

    “Broken Chain”
    We little knew that morning that
    God was going to call your name.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    in death we do the same.
    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    you did not go alone;
    for part of us went with you
    the day God called you Home.
    You left us peaceful memories,
    your love is still our guide;
    and though we cannot see you,
    you are always at our side.
    Our family chain is broken,
    and nothing seems the same;
    but as God calls us one by one,
    the chain will link again.

  9. I can’t express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Jaxon was a true warrior and had an incredible family who loved him without question. I have followed on team Jaxon and am amazed at the incredible strength and resilience of all of you. God choose wisely in lending him to you for such a short time. Be peaceful in the knowledge that he is free from the cares and worries of this world and that you will be able to see him and hug him again. He will be your guardian angel.

  10. We are grateful for all Jaxon was, is, and will continue to be through all those he touched.
    We continue to pray for those grieving.

  11. My heartfelt condolences on the loss of this precious little one.

  12. Little Jaxon

    You hardly tasted life
    But you could smile
    Even with the pain you felt
    You loved all those around you
    Your passing has left a hole in many hearts,
    But one thing is for certain,
    There is another star in the heavens—-

  13. Kayla and Ty, there are no words. Just know my heart is broken for you both. Know I think of you all the time and ANY TIME you need a hug, my arms are here.

  14. Thank you for sharing this wonderful child with us. Though I didn’t meet Jaxon in person, I met his family and I know he spent his time on earth with a very close, loving family who adored him. He could not have chosen a better home than the one he had with you. I know he will be dearly missed.
