Jaxon Williams

Those left to cherish his precious memories and continue the fight to find a cure against childhood cancer are his loving parents, big brother, Bryson Williams, little sister, Marleigh Williams, his very best furry friend Tanzy, grandparents, Rick and Jane Williams, Mike and Pam Patton,  Tommy Johnston, and Marie Johnston, his great-grandparents, Bob and Hazel Cobb, Ron and Linda Patton, Lynn Johnston, and Pat Deal, his uncles, Richard (Natalia) Williams, Chris (April) Hester, and Hunter Johnston, his aunts, Mandy Patton, Cori Patton, Mandy (Brandon) Stocklem, and Michaella (Bobby ) Ramsey, a host of cousins, great uncles and great aunts, and an amazing amount of friends.

Jaxon carried a smile that lit up a room and a pucker for a kiss that would melt your heart. Jaxon loved everything about life and brought joy to everyone he met. Jaxon continued to show everyone daily the amazing strength he had fighting his battle and never once complained. Jaxon did not lose his fight but was crowned the champion as he entered heaven.
