EMMETT LEO ZAZ SANTOS-OLEKSIW It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved Emmett. Emmett Leo Zaz Santos-Oleksiw passed away in his sleep on August 11, 2020. Emmett was born to mom, Kayla Santos and dad, Zaz Oleksiw. Although he was only with us for 13 short months, he was loved by so many and brought so much joy into all of our lives. Emmett was the light in all of our lives and will be greatly missed by so many. He leaves behind grandma and grandpa Diane & Curtis, Brenda & Zaz and Kathryn & Carlos, uncles Tyler S (Quynh), Tyler B (Bella), Dylan (Megan) & Lucas, aunts Sofia, Amelia, Liana & Reena, cousin Nathan, great grandparents, Christine, Alvin, Louis & Marie, great-great grandma Maria, and many, many more cousins, great aunts, great uncles and many honorary aunts and uncles. Emmett was born on July 10th, 2019 at 6:26 p.m. weighing 8Ibs 9oz and was 20 inches long. He was an outgoing, happy little boy who loved everything and everyone in his life. Emmett went everywhere with his parents, and there was not one person that he didn’t make smile. Everywhere he went people would turn their heads and say what a beautiful and perfect little boy he was. He loved to bounce more than anyone, loved dancing and singing, and loved food just as much. Anything you put in front of Emmett, he would eat. Emmett loved his dogs, Tux and Zoey, and would sneak them snacks whenever possible. In his short 13 months on earth, he experienced more love then most people experience in their entire lifetime. Our lives will never be the same and Emmett will never be forgotten. We will always love you our baby boy. Mommy and Daddy miss you more than anything. Your big cousin Matthew will take care of you for now, until we get to see you again.
