Gabriel Hayden Barlow, known to those who loved him as Hayden, born September 23, 1997 passed away July 21, 2020 in his home surrounded by family. He faced many medical challenges throughout his life, and was a warrior. Hayden was a lover, and was fiercely loved back. He was a fan of all things Star Wars, Krispy Kreme Donuts, pedicures, and the ladies. If Hayden liked you, he would let the room know by announcing your arrival - also known as yelling your name over and over until you acknowledged him. His bond with his siblings was sealed with a special four-letter word, used as a greeting, often followed by a special brand of Hayden laughter. He loved his time at his school, Jordan Valley School, and had a special affinity for the bus rides. He loved his ‘bros’ and would insist on fist bumps from both strangers and friends alike. He spent his time watching movies and hanging out with his family. He was always ready to go for a ride and have an adventure. Hayden is survived by his mother and father, Heidi Barlow and Gabriel T. Barlow, His siblings Hailey Staheli, CJ Barlow (Chelsea), Kurt Barlow (Rebecca), Ray Barlow and Max Barlow. He had 2 nephews, Hayden Krew Staheli and Hudson Cleve Barlow and another Baby Barlow due in October, in addition to many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is Proceeded in death by both Paternal and Maternal Grandparents, and his Aunt Connie.

I’m so very sorry for your loss. My son Noah goes to Jordan Valley. I used to see Hayden often, motoring away in the hallways. What a sweet young man!
The first thing Rachel asked me the other day, when I went in to register Noah, whether I had heard of Hayden’s passing. She along with the other staff are so distraught over this.
I just wanted to let you know that we’re thinking of you!

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Hayden, he was so sweet, I Knew him from Jordan Valley school where I am one of the lunch workers there. I will miss seeing him in the lunch room, and miss his sweet spirit, and the thumbs up he would give me when I asked if he wanted more! God bless, love, Diana Erekson.

Hayden was such a amazing little guy!!! He and my son road the bus together and were both in the same class for the last 5 years. I know we will both miss him. Every morning you would hear from Hayden “Phil come on!!”, I would give him a fist bump and he’d show me his shirt for the day (he was always proud of his cool shirts). He was amazing!! Hayden could bring a smile to your face and light into your life!! I am a better person for knowing him and feel the loss. Heidi, you are a wonderful mother and you were his person! Phil and I send our deepest condolences!! If we can do anything or help in anyway Phil and I are here for you.

I clearly remember the first time meeting Hayden. His parents had Hayden with them when they came to my office. Instantly I felt pure love and joy. Nothing but light and happiness radiated from him.....as if Heaven and Earth came together. Not often in life when an experience like that happens. Though I only met you a few times Hayden, you’ve left an Eternal impact on my life, and I’m certain of thousands more. I’m trying to imagine the reunion your having on the other side. All my families love Hayden......The Turners

Prayers for the family, as soon as I met Hayden, he was my favorite from the start, I’ll so miss him saying hearing my name, our deals, his hugs, his laugh, Heidi you are always loving 🥰 and caring , love and prayers to you guys
I have and always will hold a special place in my heart for Hayden. He came physically challenged but what a beautiful and noble spirit. If you didn’t feel his spirit and love him you never met him. I look forward to greeting him again and bumping knuckles, and just enjoying hanging out with him a bit 🤙 My love and condolences to my amazing baby sister Heidi and all Hayden’s family. Rolf

Hayden was always such a light to my day. I Loved driving him on my school bus, he made me laugh more than anyone, ever. Hayden had a special kind of sass, to know him was to love him. I am so so sad that I can't see him, and he won't steal my glasses, or adjust my shirt, lick me by surprise, or smack my butt, and tell me to knock it off!
My life has been richly blessed by knowing My buddy Hayden. I'll truly miss him every single day.

Hayden was such a pure and sweet soul, I personally thank him for touching my life and being a part of it. Sending much love and many prayers.
I remember when he was two and I would come over to play with Hailey. He was eager to engage and Hailey never complained to have him around or even do exercises with him while I was there. May peace come into your hearts and his love never leave your side. My prayers to your family in this time of change and deep loss.

Hayden had style - he created his style! His smile, laugh, and sense of humor was contagious. He knew how to get your attention! He had my heart from the beginning. Hayden came to the perfect family for him. Heidi, thank you for all the love and care you have given this special young man. You gave your all and in return you were always his favorite! Bless you!

Heidi and family,
My heart is so full knowing how much love and devotion you gave to sweet Hayden, and that he gave it right back a thousand fold. His spirit was so strong and fierce. I pray you can take comfort from our Father in a Heaven and that you can feel His love. May you also feel the Peace His Beloved Son offers to you at this time.
