Ryker Jason Warner
2012 ~ 2013
Ryker Jason Warner was born March 7, 2012 at 8:23 a.m. in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a 6 lbs. 8
oz. beautiful baby boy, but sadly born with an extremely complex condition called Heterotaxy, along
with 5 very serious con
genital heart defects. Ryker’s loving family moved mountains to get Ryker the
very best care that he could possibly have and dedicated their lives to doing anything and everything
necessary to save their baby boy’s life.
Ryker is survived by his loving pa
rents; Jason and Rachel Warner, his four adoring older siblings;
Trett, Jadd, Braylee and Addisyn Warner, as well as a massive family who all loved him dearly!
During Ryker’s short life he endured 4 open heart surgeries, an intestinal surgery, 3 days on E
as well as spending the first 341 days of life within the walls of the loving and beyond wonderful
Boston Children’s Hospital. But much more importantly, than any medical interventions
and loved every second he had with the ones he loved,
including half the hospital he was living in.
Regardless of the hand he was dealt, our little miracle boy smiled, talked, moved around and loved
life! He could stare into your soul with his big beautiful blue eyes, in a way that is indescribable unless
u experienced it firsthand. Ryker touched more lives in his almost 14 months of life, than most do
in an entire lifetime. He had a way of letting everyone in the world know that it doesn’t matter what
you go through
great and wonderful blessing
to have! He always had a beautiful smile on
his face, especially when it came to any one of his four older siblings, his eyes just lit up when he saw

On April 26, 2013 at 9:40 a.m. our family’s world came crashing down when our sweet, precious boy
earned his angel wings and left this earth to be with our Heavenly Father. Our lives will never be the
same in so many ways, as well as the lives of tens of thousands of loving followers, and although we
are left with shattered hearts, Ryker’s heart is finally whole and beautiful just like we have always
prayed for it to be. Fly high Beautiful Angel Boy! W
