Obituary for Mason J. VanVickle

Mason James VanVickle, age 12, went home to be with Jesus, on the evening of November 26, 2018. He left this world free of pain & in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his family. Mason had been courageously battling neuroblastoma, an aggressive pediatric cancer, for the last 7 years of his short life.
Mason was born on September 7, 2006, in Brainerd to Travis & Jamie (Amerud) VanVickle. He attended Pillager School when he was healthy enough, and participated in several sports throughout the years including wrestling, baseball, basketball & football. Football being his favorite. He cherished his friends, respected his teachers & enjoyed gym class & recess the most. Outside of school, Mason enjoyed spending time with family & friends, riding horse, taking care of his cattle, riding ATV and carving through the deepest snow he could find on snowmobile, when the weather would cooperate. He also loved to downhill ski and anything to do with boating and the water in the summertime.
Mason is survived by his parents, Travis & Jamie; sisters: Jordyn, Madison & Khloe all of Pillager; grandparents: Helen VanVickle of Pillager, Becky VanVickle & Lamont Peterson of Pine River, and Marianne (VanVickle) Ritchie of Baxter; uncles: Clint (Kelly) VanVickle of Pillager, Jim (Alisha) Amerud of Staples; aunts: Jessie (Matt)Nornberg of Pillager, Jessie (Ryan) Nelson of Pillager; cousins: Beau (Ashlyn), Carson, Mac, Cash, Vanna, Taylor, Tyler, Avery. Mason will be sadly missed by several great aunts & uncles, second cousins, and families of the Shaws, Stainbrooks, Heinrichs, & Wards.
