Easton Scott "Super E" Zanger, 2-year-old son of Jeff and Shannon Linderer Zanger, gave up his battle with the mitochondrial disorder POL-G (Alpers-Huttenlocher Syndrome) on Saturday (Dec. 8, 2012) in Barnes St. Louis Children's Hospital. Now he is with the angels in heaven. His short life will leave a legacy of inspiration, not sadness, for all who knew him. He was born on May 25, 2010, in Quincy. Easton was known for his dark, curly hair and his brilliant blue eyes. His personality charmed nurses and doctors at Blessing Hospital, the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and St. Louis Children's Hospital. He inspired the local communities of Quincy, Payson and Liberty to unite with legions of Facebook followers and prayer warriors to support this little boy. He inspired parents throughout the area and Facebook world to hug their children a little tighter and to cherish every moment with them. He inspired people of different faiths, communities and nationalities to display incredible acts of love, charity and generosity for his family that they will never forget. He inspired his family to recognize that they are incredibly blessed while they were experiencing a nightmare. His eternal gift is that he taught all of us to love and live life like every moment is our last. In addition to his parents, Jeff and Shannon, Easton is also survived by three siblings, Logan, Addison and Morgan Zanger; paternal grandparents, Larry and Donna Zanger; maternal grandparents, Jay and Cindy Linderer; paternal great-grandmother, Elizabeth Zanger; maternal great-grandmother, Norma LaRose; aunts and uncles, Callie Page and her husband, Brad, Jacob Linderer, Eric Zanger and his wife, Kathy, Michelle Adams and her husband, John, Jay Zanger and his girlfriend, Clare Blase, and Angie Geiselman and her husband, John. A host of cousins and other relatives also survive.
