Jace Otto Boxberger

Jace Otto Boxberger (age 1) of Shawnee, Kansas, passed away Friday, April 28, 2017. Jace is the son of Tyler and Kelli Boxberger.

Jace was an incredibly smart little boy, whose inquisitive nature sometimes got him into trouble. He loved reading books with any family member or friend, and never turned down a good snack. Our little water baby loved swimming in the bathtub and the lake. But of all the things he loved, he loved his Mommy and Daddy the most.
The impact Jace had on others’ lives is immeasurable. His infectious smile lit up the room and could brighten anyone’s day. He never knew a stranger. Our sweet baby always made everything better. Though his life ended far too soon, he will live on in our hearts forever.

Jace is survived by his Papa, Don Boxberger, MeMe, Carol Boxberger, Grandpa “Rawr”, Steve Overbey, Grandma, Dorothy Overbey, Great-Grandpa, Donald Harmon, Uncle Jake and Aunt Jirah “JJ” Overbey, Aunt Mandi “Didi” Blundon, and cousins, Cheyenne and Clay Blundon.

Jace was Russell-Grant Township Fire Chief Don Boxberger grandson and passed away unexpectedly on Friday April 28th. The call was reported as a non-breather on a 1 year old. Shawnee fire was dispatched first and Lenexa fire had a unit closer and responded to the scene.

Chief Boxberger has been very involved with the fire service and the KSFFA for a number of years.
