Age 10

Spent his final night with Grandma

When he wasn’t playing Pokémon and video games, he road dirt bikes and worked on his yellow belt in karate.

“There was never a dull moment when he was around. He just put out an energy that everyone around him felt and immediately felt happiness,” said Nancy Rutherford, a close family friend, to WHNT. Others noted his loving personality and ability to make friends with anyone.
