Easton was a sunshine in so many people’s lives. He always had a smile on his face. He loved to play with kids and felt like a big boy trying to keep up with the group. He loved Legos, blocks, balls and cars. Easton loved his mommy’s love and his daddy’s silly games. His sister always played chase, hide-and-go-seek, and played dueling pianos with him, danced and squeezed him up. His big brother always gave him big hugs, giggled and played cars, watched movies together and would share an Xbox controller so Easton felt like he was a part of the game.
Easton’s big brother and sister were his favorite loves. Even though Easton will be missed beyond measure, he is with God in heaven, where his beautiful spirit earned angel wings.
Easton is survived by his father, Darin LaFrance; mother, Nicole LaFrance; two siblings, Aiden and Laina LaFrance; grandparents Joe and Marge LaFrance, Bonnie Sweet and Henry Clotfelter; aunts and uncles Bryan and Heather LaFrance, Kevin and Elizabeth LaFrance, Carrie Clotfelter and Justin Collison; and cousins Claire and Drew LaFrance, Gracie Clotfelter and Deegan Collison.
Easton was preceded in death by his sister, Isabel LaFrance; great-grandparents Raymond and Betty Clotfelter, Emil and Leone Yonke, and Joseph and Mathilda LaFrance; great-aunts Sara Clotfelter, Betty Klampe, Loraine Johnson and Marie Kaplan; and great-uncles Bob and Rick Yonke.
