Treī-Roan Ryan Vann, age 8, of Oak Ridge went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013.
Treī-Roan was born July 25, 2005, in Newport News, Va., the son of Crist Alvin Vann Jr. and his biological mother Angelia Myers.
He was in the third grade at Linden Elementary School, where his favorite subjects were science and social studies. More than anything, Treī-Roan loved to learn. It did not matter about what, if someone was willing to teach he wanted to learn.
He was a member of Cub Scout Pack #226 out of Linden. He enjoyed reading, collecting, and working with Legos, video games, and playing soccer, and he played football at the Boys and Girls Club of Oak Ridge, where he was on the defensive line. He was always a very thoughtful and compassionate young man who was always willing to lend a helping hand.
