Statement on behalf of the family of 7-year-old Greagan Geldenhuys

For Immediate Release

Greagan’s family is heartbroken over the loss of their brother, son, grandson, nephew, cousin, and uncle. We are remembering the fearless, cheerful, friendly boy we all knew and loved. Greagan loved his family, friends, and dogs, he was so proud of his incredible garden, enjoyed building with wood and nails, loved creating with Lego, and was so excited to return to school this fall.

We are so immensely grateful for the community who banded together in our darkest moments to find Greagan. We hope that each volunteer, donator, every single business and organization who came to our aid knows how appreciated they are. Maintaining hope while mourning the loss of Tamaine, Greagan’s mother, was made easier by each and every one of you. Thank you.

We take comfort in knowing that they have each other now, as they had through his entire life.

The family is requesting privacy at this time. All media inquiries can be directed to:
