JAXON MATTHEW APOLLO DALE March 30, 2020 – April 7, 2020 Eight days after coming into the world, Jaxon Matthew Apollo Dale passed away peacefully in his parents’ arms at Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Kansas. During that fleeting time, he touched many lives and was loved by all who met him. Jaxon had an army of friends, family and loved ones lifting him up continually to the Lord in prayer for peace and healing! Born on March 30 without a heartbeat, the staff at St. Luke’s East Hospital resuscitated him and he was transported to the NICU at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. Jaxon was known for his luscious brown locks of hair, weighed 8 lb. 5 oz., and went by “Super Jax” because of his fighting spirit. His nurses and support staff, especially at Overland Park, showered him with compassion and care as if he were their own and helped him to feel safe and loved around the clock. Jaxon made lasting memories with his family during his too-brief time here, including early morning “birth time” celebrations and serenades with his Mom, an all-night guys night with his Dad, getting to meet his Grandpa and Grandma Dale and Aunt Caitlin, peeing on his Dad during a sponge bath, a night resting between his parents’ loving arms, and many hours of singing and praying and reading God’s Word while being held. On April 7, Jaxon’s parents surrendered him into the arms of Jesus for complete healing. Jaxon didn’t experience any pain or suffering in this life and is now in Heaven with Jesus in perfect joy, love and peace. Jaxon’s family is already looking forward to seeing him in Heaven and getting to know him as God created him to be! Jaxon is survived by his parents, Christopher and Katie Dale of Warrensburg, MO; paternal grandparents, Robin and Susan Dale of Kingsville, MO; maternal grandparents, Timothy and Mary Wolfe of Albany, NY; two aunts and two uncles, Caitlin and Matthew Brown of Odessa, MO; and Matthew and Christi Wolfe of Colorado Springs, CO; and three cousins, Kyle and Henry Brown and Duke Wolfe. A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the family in care of Campbell-Cast Funeral Home. His family thanks all the staff at St. Luke’s East and Overland Park Regional Medical Center for their compassion, skill and love while serving Jaxon. Arrangements are entrusted to Campbell-Cast Funeral Home, Holden, MO. “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” A.A. Milne
