Haydon Michael Stapp, 15, of Logan, Utah passed away on December 19, 2022, just six days before his 16th birthday.
Haydon was born on December 24, 2006 in Logan, Utah to Sarah Petersen and John “Mike” Stapp, who loved him dearly. He was fortunate to have several devoted parental figures throughout his life including Saybel Kvande, Kelly Kesling, and loving uncles and aunts on both sides of his family.
Haydon grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado; Irvine, California; and Logan, Utah with his father and sister, Madelyn “Maddy” Stapp. Haydon found his closest confidante in Maddy, who is 11 months his senior: they lived by a strict sibling code and shared everything with one another. Haydon was fiercely protective of Maddy as well as his younger step-siblings, Sage and Liam Mewes, and Indiana and Arlo Kesling.
From a young age, Haydon was inquisitive and curious, determined to understand how and why things worked the way they did. He had a passion for learning and building, with a penchant for process-oriented engineering and technical trades. He was really looking forward to taking vocational courses at Bridgerland Applied Technology College next year.
Haydon was quick to speak his true feelings and stand up for what he believed in, especially in defense of people he loved. He balanced boldness with kindness and held a particular affection for dogs, relishing the responsibility of caring for his family dogs, Scout and Django as well as his cats, Fig and Newton. He nurtured a deep love and appreciation for the outdoors through time spent hiking, camping, fishing, and learning to shoot and hunt with his uncle, Michael.
Haydon leaves behind a profoundly loving family and network of friends. He is survived by his parents, John Michael Stapp and Sarah Shell Petersen; sister, Madelyn Shell Stapp; step-siblings Sage Rayann Mewes, Liam Orion Mewes, Indiana Opal Kesling, and Arlo James Kesling; paternal uncles, Christopher Thomas Stapp, Jared Richard Stapp, and Matthew William Stapp; maternal aunts and uncles, Michael Petersen, John Petersen, Amanda Petersen, and Aubrey Petersen. He is survived by paternal grandparents Jolynne Berrett and John Milo Stapp; maternal grandparents Robert Petersen and Michelle Cardwell; and cousins, Kassi Spaulding, Jordyn Spaulding, Scarlet , Marlee Ray Lynn, and Jax.
Haydon’s family wants for the community to know that what happened was a tragic mistake. Haydon did not intend for this to happen. We will always miss Haydon and the effect he had on the people around him.
