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.
