Braxton Kane Wingrove
Braxton Kane Wingrove went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Braxton was born on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 in Odessa, Texas to John Trevor Wingrove Sr. and Megan Price.

There has never been a tinier soul that did so much while spending such a short time on this earth. During Braxton's short time with his family, he was able to fill their hearts with an unconditional love that will never waiver. Braxton was born with a fighting mentality and with a tremendous amount of grit which made his Momma and Daddy more proud than they had ever thought possible. Braxton is now not only with the Lord, but he is no doubt getting to know and play with his big brother Hudson.
Those left to cherish his love and memories are his parents: John Wingrove and Megan Price of Wink, TX.; brothers: Hunter Price of Wink, TX., John Wingrove Jr. of Goldsboro, MD, and Sawyer Wingrove of Alabama; and grandparents: Mimi Shannon and Papaw Derek Rippe of Wink, TX., Papa Roy and Granny Diane Long of Wink, TX., and Pawpaw Robert and Nani Barbara Wingrove of Stamford, TX.

Braxton was preceded in death by his brother: Hudson Starnes; and aunt: June Price.

We would like to thank all those that have taken the time to pray for our family and send their love, which has given unlimited love and support in this time of grief, and to the community that we so dearly love for the pouring of outreach that has been offered. We will forever be grateful to our sweet Braxton's Dr. Sanjay Patel and his army of dedicated nurses whom spent countless hours tending to our little Warrior Angel. Without them, we wouldn't have ever known Braxton, and we wouldn't have gotten to spend the precious time that we will forever cherish. We will forever be grateful.

Funeral services will be 2:00 pm Monday, February 24, 2020 at Family Services Funeral Chapel officiated by Robert Wingrove. Burial will follow at Kermit Cemetery. Pallbearer is John Wingrove.
