Lonnie Jace Chynoweth was born on May 3, 2010. He was born 6 weeks early with lots of black hair! After 12 days in the NICU he was finally able to come home with his mom, dad and big sister Allie!
Jace was diagnosed with DIPG on November 7, 2014, after his parents noticed his left eye was turning in, headaches and some stumbling. Jace was given 2 months. He lived over 7 months past diagnosis. He passed away on June 18, 2015 at his home in the arms of his mom and dad.
Jace loved any kind of tractor, truck and heavy equipment. He loved to fish and be at home playing with his trucks and watching Paw Patrol (his favorite pup was Rubble)! He loves his mom, dad, and big sister Allie. Jace has a special love for the LDS Temple, especially the St. George Utah Temple! Jace is a very special little boy who is loved more than he will ever know! We find peace and comfort in knowing that Jace is free from the horrible cancer that DIPG is and that he is in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father and Savior . . . and most importantly that Families are Forever! We love you Handsome!
