Mason was born in Warrensburg, Missouri, on January 12, 2007, to Evan Joseph McQuitty and Angela Dawn Lewis.

Mason’s early years were spent in Odessa until 7th grade before he transitioned to Holden High School. During his time there, he excelled in showcasing his cattle and hogs through his involvement in 4-H, where he shone brightly with his hard work and dedication.

An avid nature enthusiast, Mason found solace on the farm, particularly reveling in the wheat harvests, and combining that brought him immense joy.
Mason had such a big heart for his siblings and always embracing them, there was nothing he wouldn’t do for them.

His hobbies also included fishing and hunting, where he found enjoyment in the great outdoors.

Mason is survived by his father, Evan Joseph McQuitty of Holden, MO; his mother, Angela Dawn Lewis of Bates City, MO; two brothers; Miles George McQuitty and Kenton Nash Lewis; one sister, Kaylin Nicole Lewis; grandparents, Diane (Ed) Hannah of Clinton, MO; George W. McQuitty of Chilhowee, MO; Dale and Kathy Morgan of Kingsville, MO, and Dennis and Debbie Lewis of Odessa, MO; uncles, Eric McQuitty, Mark (Mary) McQuitty, Anthony Morgan, and Jeremy (Katie) Lewis; and many relatives, and friends.

Mason was preceded in death by his dad, Curtis Wayne Lewis; and an infant sister; Avery Ann Lewis.
