Noah Eugene Timmons, age three, of Holden, Missouri went to be with the Lord and his PaPa (Jack Timmons) on Monday, May 17, 2021 at home, surrounded by his loving family.
Noah was born on July 20, 2017 in Warrensburg, Missouri to Camaron Timmons and Brandon Gruetzmacher.
Noah was raised and cared for by his great-grandparents, Jack and Nancy Timmons.
Noah loved riding the lawnmower with his PaPa Jack, driving his tank, and cruising around in the golf cart.
It always brought a smile to his face when he could “giddy-giddy” (tickle) people and make them laugh.
Noah liked eating hot dogs, ice cream with chocolate syrup, and drinking Diet Mountain Dew.
He enjoyed dancing and doing the moves to the song “The Wheels on the Bus,” listening to music, and playing with trucks, cars and tractors.
Noah always had the most fun playing with his two best playmates Olivia and James.
Noah spent many months at Children’s Mercy Hospital, where his favorite thing was riding laps upon laps around 4 Henson, being pulled by whoever was willing.
He also enjoyed road trips to Topeka to spend time there with his family.
Noah flew to Seattle, Washington twice and participated in T-Cell Therapy trials.
He was the first and only pediatric patient to participate in the trials.
Although it did not cure Noah, it did extend his life and the days he had with his family.
Noah’s family’s hope is that his life and participation in the trials will help others on the same journey and contribute to finding a cure for leukemia one day soon.
Though Noah had a short life, it was a life full of love from his family, his loving community, and friends who fought right alongside him every step of the way.
Noah is survived by his great-grandmother (MaMa), Nancy Timmons, and his great-aunt (Be) Rebecca Timmons, of the home; his little brother, Paul Kelley Timmons of St. Louis, MO; great-aunts, Deanna Knox and husband, Jim of Holden, MO, Mary Pritts of Holden, MO, Sarah Olson of Topeka, KS, Sissy Hendee and husband, Frank of Unionville, MO; mother, Camaron Timmons; grandmother, Jacquelyn Timmons of Holden, MO; step-grandfather, Justin Wiley of Warrensburg, MO; grandfather, Shawn Bennett and wife Christi of Olathe, KS; aunt, Ella Wiley; uncles, Jacob Timmons and Cadence Wiley; cousins, Olivia Peraud, James Peraud, Christopher Reinhardt, Maggie Reinhardt, Mason Smith, Aiden Smith, Lincoln Smith, Sauren Folson, Jamie Booe, Justice Smith, Serenity Pritts, MaReesa Murrow, Jeremiah Murrow, Jacob Ross and Stormi Alvidrez; father, Brandon Gruetzmacher; grandmother, Elizabeth Alvidrez of Kansas City, MO; grandfather, Robert Hartzwig of Peculiar, MO; aunt, Brittany Gruetzmacher of Kansas City, MO; and many loving friends.
