Lennox Jack Lapsley, 1 month

Lennox Jack Lapsley, aged 1 month, passed away in his parents’ arms at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI on Aug. 15, 2021, after a long surgery to repair congenital heart disease and malformed airway system.

Funeral service was held on Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021 at 10 a.m.  at the United Methodist Church in Winner, SD.  Burial followed in the Winner City Cemetery. 

Lennox is the son of Luke Lapsley and Misti Lapsley (Hofeldt) of Winner, SD.  He defied the odds and amazed his doctors and nurses with his strength.  The fact that he was stable and was not connected to tubes or IVs prior to surgery was a miracle in itself. That gave his parents the ability to hold and feed him themselves.   During his brief visit on Earth, he enjoyed listening to music, watching his toy aquarium, and being held by his parents.  He was loved by all who met him, and will be greatly missed.

 Lennox is survived by his parents, Luke and Misti, grandparents Steve and Tammy Lapsley of Valentine, NE, Rodney Todd and Gwenith Hofeldt of Millboro, SD, great grandmother Dorothy Lapsley of Ideal, SD, aunts and uncles Kory and Greg Hall of Watertown, SD, Nick and Amanda Lapsley of Spearfish, SD, Matthew and Trisha Walker of Las Vegas, NV, Lacee Lapsley and TC Colvin of Valentine, Tricia Hofeldt of Millboro, and Michael Hofeldt of Millboro, first cousins Kaylee, Maddie, and Gage Hall, Sadie and Lexo Turner, Zach and Allie Lapsley, Kennedie Assman, and Keelani Cox.
