Tanner loved school and was a sponge for knowledge. With the help of many teachers and para-educators, whom we could not have done this journey without, he attended Aurora Elementary, Middle and High School. Although Tanner was the student, he was a great teacher. Showing all of us a view of the world not often seen by others.

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Tanner. He loved the outdoors. Swinging, planting and picking flowers, bike riding with his grandparents, swimming, campfires and mowing the lawn with grandpa. His favorite activities were watching Disney movies on his iPad and reading books and he loved McDonalds, car washes and trains.

Tanner had the best "squishes" (hugs) and his laugh left a lasting impression on everyone he met.

Tanner faced life with resilience. After numerous hospitalizations and surgeries he always bounced back with courage.

Tanner was always eager to face whatever hurdles came his way.

Those left to cherish Tanner's memory are Lifetime Guardians and Grandparents, Glen and Ronni Harvey of Aurora; Mother, Stephani Bartels of Aurora; Sister, Kaelyn Foust; Brothers, Axl and Ace Luscomb all at home in Aurora; Grandparents, Rod and Tori Bartels of Holdrege; Great-Grandmother, Dot Krance of Boelus; Aunts, Uncles and cousins, teachers and friends all that love and adore him. Tanner is joining Great-Grandpa and Grandma Gryp, Great-Grandpa and Grandma Harvey and great-grandpa and grandma Bartels in Heaven.
