Liam Patrick Flanagan-Hinkle left this world peacefully in his mother’s arms on January 21, 2018, at Randall’s Children Hospital in Portland, Oregon, after an eight-day battle with an infection called necrotizing bacterial fasciitis.
He was born on July 6, 2009, in Pendleton, Oregon, to Sara Hebard. From the moment he came into her life he has always been her pride and joy, and her little hero … but heaven needed him. He was a ray of sunshine that brought everyone happiness everywhere he went. His smile was so bright that you couldn’t help but catch it. He loved helping his dad Scott doing chores on the farm. He always had a smile to share and his kindness was endless. He enjoyed the simple things in life and made a friend wherever he went; he knew no strangers. He always stuck up for others, put others before himself and protected those who he cared about. He loved camo, and everything Batman.
Liam is survived by his parents, Sara Hebard and Scott Hinkle, and also his brothers Cole Hinkle, 14, Eli Hinkle, 10, Caleb Hinkle, 3.
He was preceded in death by Mary Hebard, his grandmother.
Liam’s Celebration of Life will be held at Pilot Rock High School gym in Pilot Rock, Oregon, on Saturday, February 10 at noon.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Liams GoFund Me page www.gofundme.com/liam-flanagan. You can also donate at Banner Bank in Pendleton, or Old West Credit Union. Proceeds will be used for medical expenses and to start Liam’s Legacy Foundation to help others.
