A funeral service for Westyn Brian Mandrell, 1, was held on November 15, at Wilson Orwosky Funeral Home. He died on November 8, 2022, in Sulphur Springs. He was born on May 22, 2021, to Bryan and Mercedes Mandrell of Emory.
Westyn made an impact on everyone he met with his infectious smile or mesmerizing blue eyes. His constant energy kept him on the go. There was a bond between Westyn and his brother, Axton. He was a daddy’s boy, and his paw-paw’s best friend, but in the quiet moments nothing soothed him more than the cuddles he got from his mom and grammie.
Westyn is survived by his parents; brother, Axton Earl Sasser; maternal grandparents, Edwin and Debbie Myers; paternal granny, Jeri White; aunt, Mariah Edwards and husband Aaron; cousin, Skylar Edwards; and numerous uncles, aunts, cousins and friends that will allow his memory to live on through them.
He was preceded in death by his brother, Parker Ray Sasser; grandfather, Stephen Mandrell; great-uncles, Rick Hill and Scott Blinn; and his great-grandparents.
