Beene of Corpus Christi, TX; sister and brother, Kaitlin and Chase Hackner both of Edgerton; his constant companion, his boxer, Lucy; maternal grandmother, Nira Johnson of Edgerton; paternal grandfather, Wesley Parkins of Corpus Christi, TX; aunts and uncles, Lydia (Robert) Moore of Stoughton, Brian Johnson of Stoughton, Chad (Stephanie) Johnson of Edgerton, Mark (Theresa) Johnson of Edgerton, and Nancy Beene of Waco, TX; cousins, Ryan, Justin, Zack, Christopher, Cortney, Abby, Blake, Gavin, Caleb, and Alec; numerous friends including special friends, Ryan Stringham, Ryan Jahn, and Jordan Taylor.
