Landon came into this life bringing an immeasurable amount of love, happiness and joy on April 24th 2012.
All thru his life Landon had a love for all things Mickey Mouse, listening to music & silly noises, being read to and more than anything Landon loved being with his family. As a family we visited Disney World where Landon met Mickey Mouse and where he fell in love with every Princess he met. Landon swam with dolphins, dipped his feet in the Pacific & Atlantic Oceans, buried his little toes in sandy beaches, met special friends in Minnesota & Washington and enjoyed trips to California, Nevada, Idaho, Montana and New Mexico. Landon loved being outdoors and we enjoyed countless days in the mountains fishing and being together. Landon’s smile lit up our lives and his infectious laugh was music to our ears. There was no better feeling than holding Landon in our arms and seeing the warmth & light of heaven in his beautiful eyes. Our “Boom Boom” faced many challenges as he valiantly fought Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy and we feel as though Landon ultimately won that battle as he never let it bring his spirit down and lived his life every single day with laughter, smiles, happiness and love. We are so proud of Landon’s life and the incredible way he chose to live it.
Landon was welcomed into heaven by his maternal great grandparents and his two guardian angel cousins, Christopher & Allyson, and we find comfort thinking of their reunion & happiness being together. Landon leaves behind his loving parents Joseph and Ashley Caputo, his adoring sister Isabella, grandparents whom he shared a special bond with Michael & Jodie Caputo and Daryl & Patti Hagler as well as many great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that love him.
A celebration of life will be held on Monday, February 25th from 6:00 until 8:00 PM at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City. Guests are encouraged to wear all things Mickey and use the complimentary valet parking provided on the north side of the building. A Funeral mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, February 26th at 11:30 AM at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 4501 West 5215 South, Kearns. Interment will follow at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East 10600 South, Sandy.
