Axel Hey Obituary
Axel Hey

My name was Axel John Hey, and I decided to surprise daddy and mommy, Travis and Morgan (Tescher) Hey, seven weeks early on April 27th at 1:46 AM in Sioux Falls, SD. Unknown to most, my diagnosis was grim from the start, but my mommy and daddy helped me grow as long as they safely could. I spent thirty-two weeks and five days in mommy's womb, two hours and fifty-four minutes in the arms of those who loved me on earth, and will spend eternity surrounded by the angels in heaven.

Though my time here was brief, my impact was powerful. I taught mommy and daddy that love between two people was not divided, but multiplied when we became a family of three. Mommy and daddy taught me that life is not measured in minutes, but rather measured in love.

I knew nothing but love during my moments on earth. I was showered with kisses, tears of joy, and snuggles. My mommy sang to me, and my daddy and grandma read me books telling me all about heaven and a parent's love.

I left this world silently and was greeted in heaven by my Aunt Jordin Tescher, Grandpa Richard Ries, Great-grand parents Alvin Tescher, Fred and Virginia Hey, and Robert and Ruth Jensen.

I will forever be missed by my mommy and daddy, grandmas and grandpas (Jeff and Paulette Tescher of Bismarck, ND, Cathy Ries of Salem, SD, and John Hey and Linda Jones of Sioux City, IA), great-grandparents (Paul and Joyce Miller of Harvey, ND, Elizabeth Tescher of Bismarck, ND, and Bill and Mary Ann Ries of Pocahontas, IA) and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and relatives who loved me dearly.

Funeral Mass 10:30 am Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 at Church of St. Mary Immaculate Heart, 2109 S. 5th Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD. Visitation with family present to greet friends prior to mass 9-10 am followed by recitation of the Holy Rosary. Interment St. Michael Catholic Cemetery, Sioux Falls, SD.
