Help Family After Drowning Tragedy, Jaxon Bedenek   WPDE  Jaxon Bedenek, the 3 year son of an automotive technician at Meineke, Murrells Inlet has died due to a drowning accident.   We are creating this site to help the family with funeral and hospital expenses.

Jaxon's mother, Heather, writes: 
Jaxon Trevor Bedenek was born on November 19, 2015.  He was a surprise baby, who loved all people.  He was always smiling and showing people his love through his eyes (he had this special look). 

Jaxon has two brothers, 12-year-old Gabriel and 5-year-old Alex, with whom he loved to wrestle (like boys do) and in quieter moments, snuggle to watch movies.

His favorite movies were Bolt, The Secret Life of Pets, Moana, Sing and many more.

He loved animals, especially dogs, and he had a special knack to draw them to him and they knew he was kind. 

He had the most beautiful blue eyes you could ever see in a child and a beautiful heart. 

Jaxon was at the pool with a friend and from what we understand their back was turned for only about 60 seconds and he was gone. He was in the pool.  It was a horrible, tragic accident.

Jaxon, we will miss you forever.
Love  Mom, Dad, Gabriel and Alex 

The hearts of Jaxon's mother, father, and two brothers are broken.  We have received several large donations and are thankful for all the support.  However, one of the strengths of GoFundMe is a crowd coming together with $5 - $25 donations.  This family is dealing with the pain of this horrific loss.  It would be beautiful if they didn't also have to stress about the funeral expenses and the very large medical bills.  Any help from all of you would be appreciated.
