On September 10th 2022, Kian Stephen Finnegan, aged 3 years, of Fayetteville, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family after a 33-month battle with brain cancer. Kian showed the power of the human spirit through his ability to live, laugh, and love everyday of his life. Kian loved music, nature, and had a natural athleticism that showed as he relearned to walk, sit and play. He had a fierce heart and a love of people.
He loved his sister, June, parents, grandparents, extended family and the many doctors, nurses and therapists that gave so much hope and joy to him. He is predeceased by his grandfather, Stephen Kraushaar. Surviving are his loving parents, Neil and Adrienne Finnegan; sister, June Finnegan; maternal grandmother, Frances Kraushaar; paternal grandparents, Irene and Dominic Finnegan; uncles, Stephen Finnegan and Patrick Kraushaar; aunt, Jordan Kraushaar; cousins and extended family.
