Harrison Siddall

Print Obituary
Harrison Robert Siddall, infant son of Michael T. and Krista A., nee Layman, Siddall, born July 15, 2017, in St. Louis, MO, died Sunday, August 6, 2017, in St. Louis, MO.

Harrison was born with Epidermolyis Bullosa (EB). It’s known as the “The Worst Disease You’ve Never Heard Of”. Those born with EB are called “Butterfly Children” because their skin is as fragile as wings of a butterfly. Harrison’s team of nurses, at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital, called him “Hero” and “Dreamy”, like Captain America. Like a superhero, he fought to survive through blow after blow, all day and through sleepless nights. Having his mom and dad hold him and hearing his big sister’s voice helped him through the pain.

Harrison is survived by his loving parents;
his sister, Ava Siddall;
paternal grandparents, Thomas and Karen Siddall of Belleville, IL;
and maternal grandparents, Steve and Carol Layman of Troy, IL.

Harrison may be known as a Butterfly but he is our Superhero.

Memorials may be made to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital or to D.E.B.R.A. of America.  Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.

Visitation: Friends may visit from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, August 9, 2017, at George Renner & Sons Funeral Home, Belleville, IL, and from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, August 10, 2017, at St. Peter’s Cathedral, Belleville, IL.

Funeral: Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, August 10, 2017, at St. Peter’s Cathedral, Belleville, IL, with Msgr. John Myler officiating.

Burial will be at Green Mount Catholic Cemetery.

Condolences:

My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. My baby was in the same hallway as Harrison and every time I walked by his room or the parent lounge I could just see the pain on everyone's faces. I believe Harrison is resting comfortably in heaven now. I continue to pray for your family during this difficult time.

We have never met, but we share your pain. Our grandson suffers with EB. As we care for him daily it breaks our hearts. Your son is free from pain and there is some peace knowing that. We pray for a cure. We are so very sorry for your loss.
