Brenton Cory Clyde Larsen was born on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 8:55 pm at Utah Valley Hospital after his family optimistically anticipated his arrival. He weighed 4 pounds 1 ounce and was 17 inches long. Brenton’s family was blessed with 8 beautiful days with their precious baby boy.
Brenton left this earthly existence on August 23, 2019 at 3:24 in the morning in his mother’s arms, next to his father. Brenton was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at 17 weeks gestation, but his family was very hopeful that he would get to spend time with them. His parents researched how to help the anomalies he was afflicted with and did what they could to help improve the quality of his tiny life. He proved very strong during the pregnancy, was a fighter during his delivery and achieved many milestones while in the NICU at Utah Valley Hospital with the help of the very best, most compassionate nurses and doctors.
Brenton experienced so much love during his short time on earth. He was deeply loved by his mother Carlie, his father Trenton, his three older sisters, Attley, Berkley and Tenley and his older brother Kaelton. He completed their family as the fifth child. He was so very loved by his many grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a multitude of caring people who prayed ceaselessly for a miracle, which resulted. He was preceded in death by the grandfathers he was named after: Great-Grandpa Clyde Nielsen Shaw and Grandpa Brent Duane Larsen.
