Henry James “Superman” Steele (2017-2018)

Son of Jared Lee Steele and Tiffany Samira Fraser Steele, was born August 14, 2017 in Dallas, TX at William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and was transferred to Children’s Medical Center Dallas shortly after. After an amazing journey of ten fight filled months against heart disease and other health conditions, Henry passed into Heaven on June 18, 2018 in Austin, TX at Dell children’s Hospital.

Henry is survived by his parents, Jared Lee Steele and Tiffany Samira Fraser Steele.                                 Grandparents, Jeffrey Lee Steele and Anna Rhea Henry Steele, and Kevin Ray Fraser and Donna Ree Jahn Fraser. Great Grandparents, Herman “Jake” Steele and Patricia Ann Decot Steele, Fred and Evelyn Dieter, and Kenneth and Lura Fraser. Uncle Richard Gale Steele, and Uncle Louis Alvarado Torres and Aunt Brittney Nicole Fraser Torres. Many Great Uncles and Aunts, as well as many much loved Cousins and Friends.

Henry had big, bright, friendly blue eyes full of life and wonder. His hair was strawberry blonde curly softness. He was the perfect handful of baby soft sweetness. He had a cute tiny baby nose. His smile brightened countless hearts with love. He had his daddy’s handsomely pronounced chin and overall facial characteristics, but mommy’s mark is displayed perfectly in the shape of his eyes and through the makeup of his countenance. Also portrayed in him were the traits of many loved ones.

Everyone who met Henry fell in love with him immediately; he had such an irresistible heavenly charm that was just not of this world which stole the hearts of many. Henry mastered the art of high fives as a form of hello. Upon walking into his room one would surely get a lifted hand and sometimes two. He greatly enjoyed his hands, strong hands made to worship. It was almost like he was saying “Look at these amazing works of art created by my Heavenly Father”. He also spent many an hour playing with a carefully selected bundle of toys from loved ones that hung expertly in his reach, especially his red ball which always captured his attention. His mom always made his room so lovingly decorated; every day must have seemed to Henry a day to celebrate his life. He dearly enjoyed music, a powerful instrument greatly used to bring him and his family comfort through an insurmountable amount of extremely challenging days.

A very special thanks to all the nurses, doctors, and staff at Children’s Medical Center Dallas for pouring out your love and care on Henry and our family, we cannot say enough how much you all mean to us. Also many thanks to all the loved ones who were such a great support through Henry’s journey.
