    1. Quinn was so sweet and kind. Back in middle school if he ever saw me having a bad day, he’d do whatever he could to put a smile on my face. He was genuine, funny, smart, all around an amazing person.. :'( rest in paradise man.. Till we meet again <3

  4. I had the blessed opportunity to work with Quinn a few years ago during his time doing community service hours at Rocky Mountain Calvary Church in Colorado Springs. It was a joy to see Quinn on the days he came in to work. Even on the days that Quinn seemed down, he was always uplifted and encouraged by the time he left each day, I remember him saying, “Thanks for being here & I enjoy coming here to RMC to do my community service hours”. Quinn had a lot of respect for me, our church & always worked hard when he was there. So many others don’t and that’s why Quinn stood out above the rest.
    I shared “my testimony” (my story) with Quinn about my life before & after Jesus Christ became real to me and how God worked in & through my life, founding a company Aerodinecomposites.com in Indianapolis manufacturing Indycar, NHRA drag racing composite (carbon fiber) parts for the cars. With that said Quinn was very interested in that he heard. Not long after that, Quinn met my son Codee that moved here to Colorado Springs from Indianapolis, Indiana and got his CDL, then drove for a trucking company that delivered to Wendy’s, where the two met.
    The two became friends. My son Codee was so exited to tell me when Quinn got his truck driving license & his trucking job, both Codee & myself were so happy for Quinn, but I wasn’t surprised at Quinn’s accomplishment because I knew he was very gifted to do & become successful at whatever he put his mind too.
    I truly believe Quinn made peace with God & Received Jesus Christ as his Lord & savior. I do plan on seeing & living in heaven for eternity with Quinn. “To God be all the Glory”.

  5. Quinn, you left us to early son. I know you’re in a better place. Just know I was always proud of you, no matter what you were going through.

  9. We were so excited to finally meet Quinn in person in June when he & Natalie (our granddaughter) moved to Rochester, this wonderful guy who put the stars in Natalies eyes! FaceTime was great for talking with them, but when we met him we were impressed with him!! Quinn won our hearts and was considered our grandson! Our hearts are so sad for all of the family, we will be praying for peace and wonderful memories to comfort you!! Much love and prayers!!
