Kayden Bryant Hair was born to Bryant and Xanthe Lynn Hair on May 23, 2017 in the University of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Kayden was an identical twin. At 17 weeks gestation we received horrifying news in which the twin, Zachary, had passed away. In result of Zachary’s passing, Kayden had suffered a stroke that had altered his brain’s development and put his life in severe circumstances. We watched Kayden’s development carefully moving forward to ensure his survival. With the help of ultrasounds, we found Kayden’s bowels obstructed. At 33 weeks, the very hour he was born, he was transferred over to Primary Children’s Hospital to have surgery performed, where he then remained for 2 months in the NICU. For the duration of his life he was in and out of the hospital for intestinal malfunctions and a list of other things.

Kayden was born a fighter. He persevered the trials he was given and always wanted to prove how strong he could be. He brought joy and love to anyone who crossed his path. He was inspiration and made everyone who met him want to be a better person.

Kayden had handsome blue eyes with long lashes. He loved all the kisses he could get. He lived for music, fun noises and things that lit up. He had a sweet tooth especially for chocolate and muffins. He was constantly trying to overcome his physical body by standing with his head held high with the help of a loved one. He loved to sing and smile and kept our family on our toes. He was a special kind of soul that touched people’s hearts in ways no one else could, and whose presence and contagious smile will never be forgotten.

Graveside services for Kayden will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019 beginning at 11AM at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 S.) in Sandy. A viewing will be held prior to the graveside services in the mortuary beginning at 10AM.

Thank you to all of those who have donated to Kayden’s cause. He was a million-dollar baby and was worth every penny of it.
