WINTHROP - Dolan Michael Stafford was born Monday, April 25, 2011, in Des Moines, Iowa, the son of Chase and Aubrey (Dolan) Stafford. Pastor Robert Hoefler of St. Francis of Assisi Parish of West Des Moines, baptized him on April 26, 2011, and Kelly and Ben Lange were his Godparents.
Even though his time on earth was short, Stafford will be remembered for his dark curly hair, his mom's extremely long fingers, and his dad's complexion. Brought into this life with love, he lovingly touched many lives and that love will continue in the hearts of those who will greatly miss him.
Stafford entered into his eternal life on Wednesday, April 27, 2011, from complications of premature birth at the Blank Children Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother Judy Stafford.
Survivors include his parents, Chase and Aubrey Stafford of West Des Moines; grandparents: Mike and Susie Stafford and Bill and Kay Dolan; great grandparents: Everett and Geri Stafford, Dee Tasler, and Anna Mae Dolan; aunts and uncles: Amber and Tim Bogardus, Cody and Kari Stafford, Kelly and Ben Lange, Emily and Luke Korbmacher, and Cannon Dolan; and eleven cousins.
The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Blank Children Methodist Hospital for their love, gentle touch, and compassion given to Dolan and his family.
Memorials may be made to the Ronald McDonald House or the Blank Children Methodist Hospital.
Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 30, 2011, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Masonville. Interment will be in the St. Mary Cemetery at Masonville.
The Fawcett Funeral Home and Cremation services of Winthrop assisted the family with arrangements.
