Colton James Berckenhoff
Organ Donor
Age 11 - Houston, TX
Date of Donation:  06/26/2012
Texas Children's Hospital; Houston, TX

Colton was a blessing to all of us. He had such a personality that just made everyone love him. Colton was 11 and a half when he lost his life. He was supposed to be going into the 6th grade this year and play football for the first time. He loved sports and had also played in a league for baseball.

Colton loved the outdoors and any chance he got to go fishing with his grandpa or his father, he was there. He looked forward to rodeo trips and BBQ cook offs. He loved telling jokes and wrestling around, as well as playing his video games. Colton wanted to grow up and be just like his daddy, but was truly a mama's boy! He would say that he was going to go to the University of Texas because he wanted to be a Longhorn. But loved his Texans!

There is so much I can say about my boy but all you have to do is look at his picture and see that firey red hair and all those freckles that I named and those sparkling blue eyes and know he was a special young man! We know as his family that he has truly blessed other people with his organ donations.We are so proud and blessed to have had him as a member of our family! We miss him dearly and we love you, our Lil' Angel.
