  • I want to express my most heartfelt and deepest sypmathy to Annette and family. While I did not have much time with Payton or Dillon, I will forever remember their warmth and pure depth of their personalities. I clearly remember Christmas 2014 where we sang and played video games in Marcella’s basement. My heart is broken for you and you are forever in my thoughts. Sending you all my love.

  • Dear family of Payton,
    I went to school with Payton both junior and senior high. Payton was very witty and friendly. One day I was really struggling on some math. Payton helped me with my work and helped me understand it better. Another fond memory I have of Payton is when we were playing basketball in gym class. I had the ball and Payton was on the opposing team defending. I quickly pass it to my team mate and my teammate makes a basket. The whole gym class was teasing Payton about letting me get past his defence. Even though Payton looked a bit embarrased he took it all in stride. My thoughts are with you. Sending all my love.
    Rachel Crossfield.

    I am so sad to hear that Payton has passed. I have wonderful memories of his and my son Alex’s childhood friendship. Payton was a sweet, kind, sensitive soul and the boys had such a good time together. You are in my thoughts, heart and prayers.

  • Tom and Annette:
    Words cannot effectively express our deep sadness upon hearing of Payton’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your families during this very challenging time.
    To reflect on positive memories of the boys might be helpful to ease your sorrow. As neighbours, we have such fond memories of watching the boys from the beach in their excitement enjoying the various water sports you introduced them to. On land, we could watch with delight while Dillion was having great fun driving his junior Jeep around the property. As the years went on, it was wonderful to see Payton have such enjoyment around his basketball hoop playing with his buddies.It was a pleasure to watch these boys grow from toddlers to teenagers.
    We want you to know we will be there to support you in this very challenging and difficult journey!
    With love
    The Charles Family
