Sawyer James Krohnberg, 7, of Champlin, died Saturday, May 13th, 2023 at Children's Hospital St. Paul.
He was born on October 5th, 2015, to Aaron and Erica (Monson) Krohnberg. Sawyer was in the first grade and attended Champlin Brooklyn Park Academy where he radiated joy and happiness with high fives in the hallways and showing off his latest dance moves for the other kids. He loved the silly songs from “Koo Koo Kanga Roo” as well as the movie “Toy Story”. When home Sawyer could be found playing doctor, bumper cars or pretend puppy with his sister Sybil. She sure loved her big brother and Sawyer loved her so much that he even let her do his makeup. They both loved dancing to their favorite songs. He loved traveling with his family in their motorhome and nothing topped the yearly road trip to the Wisconsin Dells where he’d spend the days driving go-carts and splashing at the water parks. Pizza, ice cream, french fries and Cheese Burgers were his favorite things to eat. Along with those favorites came overflowing mounds of ketchup. Sawyer was a beam of positivity that this world needed so badly and the days will never be the same without him.
He is survived by his parents, Aaron and Erica Krohnberg of Champlin; sister, Sybil Krohnberg; grandparents, Lyle and Sharon Krohnberg; Ron Jr. and Carrie Monson; aunts and uncles, Rachelle (Tony) Ohnstad, Lareasha (Uriah) Connors, Ron Monson III (Jazmin), Heidi Quam, and Holly Eisel (Shane); loving cousins; and many friends.
He was preceded in death by uncle, Chad Quam.
