Memorial to be held for Templeton student

March 17, 2014

A benefit for the family of Justin Sexton will be held on Saturday, March 22, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Brookfield.

The 11-year-old Templeton Middle School student died unexpectedly on Nov. 27 from a blood clot. His mother said he had long suffered from Perthes Disease, which is characterized by a temporary loss of blood supply to the hip. He had undergone surgery for hip problems two weeks before his death.

His mother, Tina Sexton, said her son enjoyed playing outside and loved to swim. He also enjoyed cooking and playing video games.

“His creativity and imagination would be an inspiration to anyone,” she said.

The benefit will offer food and drinks and a 50/50 raffle. Donations can be made in advance to the Justin Sexton Memorial Fund through Associated Bank or at www.youcaring.com/justinsextonmemorialfund.

The benefit will be held from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 22 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 13445 W. Hampton Rd., Brookfield.

Justin is survived by his grandparents Russell and Kathy Hill; his cousin Adalia Sexton; and his godparents Cheryl Meunier, Joey DeGeorge-Hill, Donna Reed and Mike Hungelmann.
