Braxton was born on February 16, 2016 at Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines. He was born with a severe heart defect that failed to diminish his beautiful smile. He loved Sponge Bob and tractors, being outside and seeing the fire trucks in the parade. He loved rides on grandma’s ATV and could light up a room with his smile. He proudly learned to walk a month ago and was and always will be surrounded by people who loved him dearly.
