Kayj Warren Shumway was born on November 18, 2011 in Monticello, UT. He returned to live with our Heavenly Father on April 2, 2013 in Vernal, UT.
His parents, Tye and Laici Shumway, and two older sisters, Jacelyn (7) and Kinzie (3), will miss him every day but know he is where he needs to be.
He brought so much joy in his short time with us. He was the light of our hearts.
He is preceded in death by two grandfathers, Kent Adams and Steve Burtenshaw.
He is survived by his parents, Laici and Tye Shumway; sisters, Jacelyn and Kinzie; grandparents, Liz Adams, Letha and Morris Stewart, Mark and Sherrie Shumway; and great-grandparents, Kay and Ila Johnson and Gordon Adams; along with many, many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
We will all miss his giggles, his babbling, his hugs, his cute little waddle walk, and eyes that lit up! Words cannot express our sorrow for the loss of our little angel or our gratitude for both the communities of Blanding and Vernal and the support and love they have shown our family.
Funeral services were held in Blanding, UT on April 6 under the direction of the Blanding Third Ward. A viewing was also held in Vernal.
A special thank you to Jake and Ashley Valley Mortuary, and Danny Palmer of San Juan Mortuary.
Interment was in the Blanding Cemetery.
