Sully loved the park, cars, and “wild roots” adventures. He enjoyed time spent with his cousins, who were his best friends. Sully was wild, adventurous, fearless, and showed strength and resilience through his hardships. Anyone and everyone was his friend and he loved to say hello to all who came into his presence.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Kathy Helms; and his great-grandparents, Marcie and Paul Hagene and Doris and George Prescott.
Surviving are his parents, Skyler and Erin, nee Duffy, Stanaland; his grandparents, Trish and Al Duffy, and Fred Helms; great-grandparents, Dale and Jane Helms; three aunts, Heather (Brandon) Ringler, Sarah (Randy) Williams, and Shannon (Joe) Brickey; six cousins, Addison and Lucas Brickey, Ethan Fleming, Korinna and Leonard Williams, and Jersey Trepka; his fur siblings; many other great-aunts, great-uncles, and cousins; and Erin and Skyler’s amazing group of friends and support system.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Grady, Andrea Drussa, Dr. Kellow and Dr. Wade’s entire group, and Children’s Hospital PICU team, for all that they did to help Sully. The family would also like to thank the farming families and the surrounding communities who have rallied around us every step of the way.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Ronald McDonald House at Children’s Hospital or the PICU Unit at Children’s Hospital. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.
