Jaylen Lucas GarnerSept. 25, 2011 ~ Sept. 21, 2013It is with indescribable sadness we announce the passing of Jaylen Lucas Garner of Burleson, Texas, four days shy of his 2nd birthday. He drowned in a pool where he swam and played often on September 21, 2013 Jaylen came to mortality ten weeks ahead of schedule on September 25, 2011 in Salt Lake City, Utah and spent the first five weeks of his brief life in a newborn intensive care unit at a local hospital. In fighting for survival at such a young age, he developed a zest for life. As soon as he could walk, he began exploring and could hardly be contained as he climbed on whatever obstacle came in his way. Always a happy child, his curiosity was as ubiquitous as his binky, his sparkling eyes and his charismatic smile. He loved balls of every kind and there was always a car or truck in his hands.Jaylen is survived by his father and mother, Michael Clay Garner and Jane Cardall Garner who recently moved their family to Texas; brothers Christopher Michael and Ian Terrique, sisters Kaia Jane, Justus Itara, and Amaia Leilani; grandparents Duane Volker and Margaret Layton Cardall of Salt Lake City, and Loretta Lucas Garner and the late Henry Clay Garner of Orangeburg, So. Carolina along with dozens of loving and doting uncles, aunts and cousins.A funeral service will be held Thursday, September 26, 2013 at noon at the Valley View 12th Ward, 2100 East Evergreen Avenue in Salt Lake City. Friends may pay their respects that same morning from 9:30 - 11:30 prior to the service. Jaylen will be buried beside his uncle Brian in the Salt Lake City Cemetery.Messages to the family can be posted at: www.HolbrookMortuary.com
