Waylon Marnell Obituary

Waylon Stephen Marnell, six weeks of age, passed away at Children’s Mercy in Kansas City, Missouri on January 28, 2024 at 2:59 p.m.

He was born December 13, 2024 at 9:39 p.m. in Lawrence, Kansas at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, the son of Hope Leitner. Waylon survived through the help of his Mother, Hope. He was a healthy baby, who was loved by everyone. He loved to watch Frozen movies and Coco Melon that would keep him very content. He was just starting to learn his personality, his smile, his voice, who he was most comfortable with.  He loved to be in his mama’s arms, it would soothe and calm him in a way he loved.  He would want to be held in her arms throughout the whole day especially when going to bed, always cuddled, it was his most favorite time, being in her arms.  How he loved bath time but as soon as it ended he hated the cold breeze but would be calm after he got wrapped up.  They would always have movie nights every night it was their time skin to skin, the moments of cuddles, just loving on each other.  Oh how he loved to be swaddled on some nights then would hate it on others.  How he would get milk drunk, those milk drunk smiles were the best.  So many memories to cherish.  He will Forever Be Loved.  Little Stinker Stink, Sweet Baby Loves, Rainbow Baby.  I will hold you in my heart until I can hold you in heaven.

Waylon is survived by his mother, Hope Leitner; maternal grandmother, Debra Leitner, Falls, Idaho; maternal grandfather, Brad Leitner, Middlesboro, Kentucky; paternal grandmother, Kandy Edwards, Piedmont, MO; paternal grandfather, Greg Edwards, Piedmont, MO and several uncles and aunts.
