HELPER - Keagan Aniketos Mendoza "Boots", 3, our beautiful loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, and friend passed away on June 25, 2010.

He was born May 18, 2007 in Salt Lake City to Jessica Diane Sanderson Heidel & Stevan Alex Mendoza.

From the moment Keagan was born he fought. Keagan was an inspiration to all those that knew him. He never gave up no matter what the situation; he just found his own way of doing things. Keagan was a beautiful child, who had an amazing gift to make everyone around him smile. He was and still is the most positive & motivating person I have ever met. Keagan continued to inspire and save others even after his passing through organ donation. Keagan loved to listen to music, play basketball with his little sister "Nai Nai", & doing absolutely anything that involved going outside. Above all other things Keagan was at his happiest when he was around his family & friends.
