Jared Charles Rawls, his daddy always called him “Fuzzy”, passed away October 4, 2017, at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne.  He was born March 11, 1986, in Indianapolis, the son of Charles & Kenna (Fagel) Rawls.

Jared’s first word, though he could barely speak, was “Abba”, meaning Father.  There was a never any doubt he was a child of God.  He loved people, always smiling and waving, if he knew you he would say “What’s Up?!” Jared loved sitting out in the garage or in the pole barn in his wheelchair, except when he heard the weed eater, he did not like that. 

Jared also loved riding around in cars, trucks, go carts, golf carts, or even on the school bus.  But watch out when he had to get off!! He was always asking to go to church.  Jared loved watching TV, especially the Weather Channel and the news.  His favorite foods were pizza with salt, yogurt, M & M’s, sausage biscuits, and Mountain Dew.   He also built many “masterpieces” with his giant Legos, and enjoyed playing his keyboard! Jared also loved cats.

Jared donated his corneas, now someone is looking at life through Jared’s eyes.

His nephews said, he is now in Heaven walking, and with straight legs.  We’ll miss you baby boy, see you when it’s our time…

Jared is survived by his mother, Kenna Rawls; sisters, Janel Halton, and Jynni (Mike) Turner; nephews, Seth (Tank) Halton, and Barret Halton; and niece, Lana Turner, who he called “Buddy”, all of Fort Wayne.

Jared was preceded in death by his father, Charles Rawls, and both of his maternal and paternal grandparents.

Private burial will be held on Thursday October 12, 2017, in Forest Hill Cemetery, in Shelbyville.  Messages of condolence may be left online at www.shirleyandstout.com.

So very sorry for your loss of such an ornery but lovable young man!! Jared was always full of life and amazed us with reading any and all credit cards and any other card in dad's wallet. His smile was infectious and man, he LOVED the weather channel! You all are in prayers and I know Jared is watching over all of you. Cathy R
