In Loving Memory

Bronson Willard, 20, returned home to his Heavenly Father February 7, 2009 after a long battle with cancer. He was born January 5, 1989. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. Brons enjoyed riding horses, working hard, wake boarding, driving his jeep, hunting, and being with family and friends. He is an Eagle Scout and enjoyed serving and helping others. Brons was the life of the party and knew how to make people laugh. He is a great example of faith, courage, strength and love. He made such an impact on all that knew him and will forever be in our hearts. He is survived by parents Brent and Carrie Willard; siblings Emily & Brian Ashton, Brandon & Candace, Amanda, Dustin, Jason, Jordan, Sarah Willard; nieces and nephews whom he loved, Chaz, Ayla, Payton, Gunner; grandparents Dixie & Jim Jones, Norm & Eldoris Fenn, Rex & Judy Willard, Carol Bawden; and many extended family members who were such a big part of his life.

Bronson is my cousin who was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago. He was such an example to everyone he came in contact with. The last thing Bronson wanted to do before he died was to go through the temple. We had the opportunity to go through the temple with Bronson 2 weeks ago. The spirit there was amazing and it will be an experience we will never forget. His funeral was today, it was a very nice service. The church was packed; he had touched many lives. We love you Bronson!
