Teegan Keith Sakaguchi (Waid), 14, of Idaho Falls, passed away May 1, 2017, at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical of propionic acidemia (PA).
Teegan was born July 3, 2002, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Aubrey Ashley, Mark Sakaguchi and Chris Waid. Teegan attended schools in Idaho Falls, and he was currently attending Eagle Rock Junior High. During Teegan's lifelong battle with his PA disorder, he always had a sparkle in his eyes and a big contagious smile. He loved going to school with his friends, spending time with his family and friends, watching his loyal SpongeBob, taking car rides with the wind in his face, rocking out to music, balloons and cheering on his favorite team, The Celtics.
In Teegan's 14 years, he touched many hearts and lives. He leaves us with a legacy for eternity.
Teegan is survived by his parents, Aubrey Ashley, Mark (Kara) Sakaguchi and Chris Waid; brothers, Cohen, Taysen, Brennan, A.J. and Rylan; great-grandmother, Elva Ashley; grandparents, Dave Ashley, Robin (Greg) Smith and Ben (Marcia Bingham) Sakaguchi; Pat K (Kurt Loptien) Yeary; Theresa Castillo and Jerry (April) Waid; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
