Wesson William Littau: 2011-2012
Wesson William Littau was born Aug. 1, 2011, in Winner, SD. Less than three months later he was diagnosed with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
After a courageous battle, our brave warrior earned his angel wings on Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2012, at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.
In his brief time in this world, our sweet boy touched many lives and was considered a true hero by thousands of people worldwide.
His bright, blue eyes and perfect little face attracted many people to his story and his struggle to live. Everyone that met him fell in love with him. Many of those who had come to love him had only known him through his difficult yet beautiful story of his amazing strength told through CaringBridge. He truly enjoyed more love and touched more lives in his short time, than most people experience in a lifetime.
Wesson is survived by his loving parents Kristi and Logan; big brother Keegan; Grandparents Darrel and Deanna Kaiser of Winner; Grandparents Bob and Becky Littau of Carter; Great-Grandparents Kathleen Steele of Winner, Hazel Sondergard of Winner, Betty Littau of Carter, Lorraine Mitchell of Aberdeen; Aunt Jessica Beehler (Jason, Bayli, Mali, Masen) of Winner; Uncle Shane Kaiser of Denver; Uncle Mick Kaiser of Denver; Aunt Dawn Andel (Corey, Grayson, Asher) of Sioux Falls; Aunt Kara Kaiser (Justin Zeigler)of Yankton, SD; Uncle Luke Littau (Jena, Evan, Allie) of Winner; Uncle Will Littau of Carter.
He was preceded in death by Great-Grandparents Donald Steele, Fritz Kaiser, Rueben Littau, Bruce Mitchell and Great Uncle Dick Steele.
There was a memorial service and celebration of Wesson’s life at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at Winner National Guard Armory. Burial followed at the Winner Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers the family would like memorials directed to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN.
