Indy Huettner

Print Obituary
Indy Wolfe Huettner, almost 6 months old, of Belleville, IL, born May 28, 2022, in St. Louis, MO, died Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at Memorial Hospital, Belleville, IL.

Baby Indy was our little koala bear, for he loved to be held, cuddled, and adored. He loved to be told how handsome he was, and he never failed to respond with a beautiful smile. Within Indy’s six months of life, he smiled and lived life to the fullest.  Indy went to Disney World, he stood on the beach and felt ocean water at his feet.  He felt the love and warmth from many, many family members and friends daily. All baby Indy knew, in his brief time with us, were only the beautiful aspects that this life has to offer!

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Steven Pasqualone; and his great-grandparents, Gerhard Huettner and Marlene Meng.

 He is survived by his mother, Tess Huettner;
his father, Jeffrey Pasqualone;
three sisters, Bristol, Bella, and Blacey Pasqualone;
his grandparents, Juergen and Mary Jo Huettner and Janice Pasqualone;
a great-grandmother, Amanda Veath;
a great-grandfather, Michael Mercurio;
two aunts, Joann (Jeremy) Fults and Jennifer (Jamie) Ryan;
four cousins, Bane, Jolee, Alex, and Orson;
his godfather, Wolfgang Huettner and family;
and many other cousins and family members.
