“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” — Luke 18:16
BEAVER DAM, Ky. — Brantlee Dean Stevenson Tate peacefully entered Heaven’s gates on the 3rd of May, 2023. He was born on the 19th of August, 2015, to Megan Henderson Tate and Sean Tate. Brantlee’s story on this earth is a story of triumph.
He defied the odds at every turn. Brantlee was never supposed to come home from the hospital after birth, but the Lord had other plans for him. He blessed us with seven wonderful years that were filled with the best memories and too many blessings to count. Brantlee loved to run, play, climb and jump. He enjoyed watching his two favorite shows SpongeBob and Paw Patrol. He loved deeply and unconditionally. His smile was contagious. We cherished every unpromised moment we were given with our little man.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Ronald “Steve” Tate; great-grandfathers, Harold Dean Henderson and Thomas “Ray” Rigdon; great-uncle, Ned “Bro” Lucas; great-grandmother, Lora Moore; his favorite physical therapist, Donna Kaelin; and two very special cousins, Gloria “Lanie” Taylor and Riley Addison Fulton.
He is survived in death by his mother, Megan Henderson Tate; father, Sean Tate; sisters, Loralyn Tate and Lainey Tate; the most exceptional, grandparents/caregivers, Marsha and Robbie Henderson; great-grandmothers, Judy Lee and Helen Henderson; aunt, Karisa Henderson; cousin (bonus sister), Averi Nickole Goff; plus, many other aunts and cousins that loved Brantlee dearly.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to all of the healthcare workers that have been involved in Brantlee’s care over the last seven years.
