Liam Fredric Batten received his angel wings on April 3, 2015, after losing his battle with cancer. His final days were spent surrounded by family, friends and caregivers who Liam had touched in some small way throughout his short six months here.

Liam is survived by his loving parents, Bryan and Kim Batten, of Wilmington; sister, Charlotte Batten; paternal grandparents, Mark and Connie Batten, of Raleigh; maternal grandparents, Fred and April Eshelman, of Wilmington and Donna Clements, of Wilmington; maternal great-grandfather, Harold Garrish, of Wilmington; aunts and uncles, Wes and Ashley Miller, of Greensboro and Tyler and Nancy Batten, of St. John, Virgin Islands; and cousin, Wiley Batten.

With Liam’s passing we remind others that his life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss him every day, he will forever remain in our hearts. Liam has touched more lives in his short time here than many of us ever will and we feel blessed that he has made a lasting impression on so many lives. We are thankful that Liam’s sister, Charlotte, met her brother so she can hold dear the memory of Liam’s gentle spirit.

Liam leaves behind many wonderful caregivers who provided constant love throughout his journey. All of these special people, too numerous to mention, provided Liam with not only love but strength for our family.

There will be a funeral service at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 8, 2015, at Andrews Market Street Chapel in Wilmington with a celebration of life to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Liam’s life.

In lieu of flowers, donations in honor of Liam may be made online or by mail to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, 333 E. Lancaster Avenue #414, Wynnewood, PA 19096.

Please leave online condolences for the family at Andrews Mortuary.
