Our dear son was wrapped in the Lord our Saviors arms while doing what he loved most, riding his motocross bike. He was born in Jacksonville, FL on April 30, 1991, he attended Living Waters Preschool, Millcreek Elementary, Switzerland Point and was a senior at Bartram Trail High School. He had many loving and wonderful friends. He loved to go to Wednesday night youth groups at church. He worked dutifully beside his father learning the Big Ben's Tree Service that one day he would take over for his father. When he was younger he enjoyed baseball, football, skateboarding, paintball, fishing and everything life had to offer. He was the sweetest, kindest, most affectionate son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend that God had to offer and that we could ever ask for. He will always be in our hearts and in Gods arms. Memorial contributions may be made to Children's Home Society at chsfl.org/donate.
