BATH / HORNELL-Owen Charlie Eugene Conklin, 11 month old son of Kimberly D. Conklin of Bath, NY, passed away peacefully on Tuesday (March 7, 2017) at the Albany Medical Center, in the loving arms of his mother.
He was born March 14, 2016 at Corning Hospital and died just one week shy of his first birthday.
Owen’s life started out rough, but he was a fighter and he “gave it his all” until the end!
He loved watching cartoons; having his mommy comb his long hair while she held him; seeing his Papa and listening to his “Oma” sing “You Are My Sunshine” to him.
In addition to his mother, Kimberly, Owen is survived by his soon to be step-father, Anthony Ottaviano; his soon to be sister, Oaklynn Rayne; his grandparents, Gerald E. & Angel L. (Meyer) Conklin; many aunts, uncles & cousins.
Although Owen was never able to leave the hospital setting, he touched so many people in his short, precious life. He was truly loved and will be sadly missed.
A “Friends & Family Dinner” was held Sunday, March 12, 2017, at the Howard Fire Department.
Funeral arrangements are in care of the Dagon Funeral Home, 38 Church St., Hornell, NY.
