Brayden Cassidy Eaton
In Remembrance Of
Brayden Cassidy Eaton
January 23, 2001 to April 7, 2018
On Saturday, April 7, 2018, Brayden Cassidy Eaton and her boyfriend, Carson Glen Koch, were traveling between Mesquite, Nevada, and St. George, Utah, when they veered off the road and rolled, instantly killing both of them. Carson and Brayden were sweethearts who had been dating for the past sixteen months.
Brayden was a Junior at Hillcrest High School and had many friends who loved her. She was a committed student and worked full time at Buffalo Wild Wings in Midvale.
Brayden’s mom, Kathleen Campbell, passed away of liver failure just 1.5 weeks before Brayden’s passing. Kathleen loved her daughters and will welcome Brayden will love and perfect compassion in heaven.
Brayden was ambitious and extremely hard-working. Nothing kept her down. She rose above every difficult challenge that she ever faced. Her career goal was to be a psychologist. She had been through a lot in her young life and wanted to help others deal with their struggles and tragedies.
Brayden loved to draw and write, she was super talented and passionate about it. She loved mountain hikes and adventures into abandoned places. She was an amazing singer even though she didn’t like showing off her voice to everyone. She was super funny and made the stupidest jokes and the funniest accents. She also loved animals so much. She had 3 dogs and loved every dog she met. She enjoyed soccer and participated in pageants when she was a toddler.
This is a tribute poem that her Grandmother Karen wrote:
On Jan. 23, 2001 a cold wintery day, a little angel was born, her name was Bray
She was cute as a button as she well knew and she found, she had her parents wrapped about her little finger yes, all around
As time went on she got a little sister to take under her wing, which she did with care and at times would for her sing
She started school and really did exceptionally well, but at one time while playing hard, she fell
Broke her arm and had to rush her to the hospital but oh well
It never seemed to phase her and it healed just fine, yes, we all loved her, this special granddaughter of mine
Brayden grew up into a wonderful young woman, would do anything for anyone, especially her mom
She had such a sweet spirit for the lucky ones that know, like her family and friends, she had so many good seeds to sow
She was a huge help to her sister, mom and mamaw and even if I think hard, not really a single flaw
Then she met Carson and her life was now full, she loved him with all of her heart and yes, he was really cool
They made a great couple, this young woman and man,of course ups and downs as in any relationship it can
Then on March 27th something happened, so sad, she lost her best friend, her mom and she felt oh so bad
That’s why I let her go on this trip to help ease the hurt, have fun, be a young woman in love, not have to run
From the hurt that I knew she was still feeling and ravaging her body to set it reeling
Brayden, Brayden, oh how we love you, we will miss you so bad our feelings so true
Have you met up with your Mom and Carson there? With your sweet face and your hair so fair
You three together, watch over us who are on the other side so that we all can have a reunion when God changes the tide
And we meet up again at some point as it says in His Will and we hug each other and happiness our hearts will fill
Goodbye, we will love you always
