James Lee Cornelius

10/23/2018 - 10/23/2018

Byron, IL

James Lee Cornelius II was born into the arms of the angels on Tuesday October 23, 2018, at 11:44 a.m. to parents Candace and Jonathon Cornelius at the Mercy Health Hospital in Rockford. While his time with us on earth was far too brief he was very loved and touched many lives. He was already a little fighter. He will be cherished and missed by his parents, Jonathon and Candace Cornelius of Byron; siblings, Emily Cornelius, Charlize Sturgeon, Sophia Sturgeon, and Abel Sturgeon; grandparents, Jackie Cornelius of Byron and Tom (Deanna) Hughes of Forreston, aunts and uncles, Breanna (Kody) Neels of Polo, Kevin Hughes of Freeport, Jeff Cornelius of Rockford, Justin Cornelius of Rockford, and Melissa (Tyler) Vogt of Forreston; and several cousins. He was welcomed into heaven by his grandfather James Lee Cornelius and infant brother Mason. A memorial service will be held at a later date at Cornerstone Family Church in Byron with Pastor Randy Snider officiating.
