Sawyer Daniel Moles
January 6th, 2022 - November 27th, 2022
There are many things we will remember about Sawyer’s short life. He was always so happy - his little dimple and smile brought a returning smile to everyone’s face who saw him. He loved kisses from Dad and snuggles with Mom. Sawyer was Momma’s travel buddy. He visited lots of places with Momma and his entire family including trips to Canada, Italy, Washington D.C., and both of his parents’ alma maters Missouri State University and Harvard Business School. He was able to be a part of one of the family’s favorite traditions of world travel! He had five tiny teeth he was just learning and LOVING to use - most notably his recent obsession with pizza. His giggles and antics prompted hours and hours of laughter with his siblings and parents. He was the joy and light of all their lives.
He is survived by his parents Kyle and Kelli Moles and their children Hunter, Madison, Colton, and Greyson of New Buffalo, MI; maternal grandparents Tom and Linda Wolf of Olathe, KS; aunts and uncles Amy and Eric Shackelford and their children Ava, Emma and Jack of Olathe, KS; Tony Lakin of Olathe, KS; Dan and Melissa Moles of Garden City, MO; great-grandparent Joyce Moles of Harrisonville, MO; and a host of great aunts and uncles, second and third cousins, godparents and dear family friends.
He is preceded in death by grandfather Chris Moles, great-grandparents Larry Moles, Clifford and JoAnn DesMarteau, Irvin and Sylvia Wolf.
