He made the most of the time that he was given and to know him was to love him.
Survived by parents, Lynn and Patrick (Lawrence) and sister, Dulcie; parents, Jesse and Jennifer Petrowski and sisters, Logan and Raven and brother, Julian; grandparents, Eileen Zurnieden, Robert Lawrence, Jim and Karen McNamara, Richard and Denice Petrowski, Connie Jacobson and Curt (Jake) Jacobson; many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and countless friends.
