Mason Ryan Wight was born into this world in Dallas, Texas on December 15th, 2001, to his blessed parents, Doug and Tracy Wight. Mason was Doug and Tracy's first child together and the family resided in Rockwall, Texas. Mason lived with his parents, as well as with his two sisters, Erin Gallagher and Terra Wight and a brother, Ryan Gallagher. His oldest brother, Drew Wight, had already left home for college. Although born healthy, Mason was soon diagnosed with many allergies and was also an asthmatic child. Through his early years his allergies were held in check through natural homeopathic care but his asthma required regular medications and treatments.
Mason was always a very happy and engaging young boy, outgoing, polite and pleasant in every way. He was loving, caring and sensitive to all whom knew him. He loved sports of all kinds both as a participant and as a fan, but his clear favorites were football and baseball, which he played up until the end of his very short life on this earth. Mason performed well in school as well as on the playing field and was competitive with both. He always displayed outstanding sportsmanship, leadership and tirelessly worked on improving his skills. As he grew into a young man, Mason dreamed of playing professional baseball and becoming a US Navy Seal.
Mason and his family were blessed to have experienced many of the great joys of life, having travelled all over the United States and internationally. From visiting his sister Terra in Hawaii to traveling in Europe with his parents and grandparents, Mason witnessed many things in life that most children only get to read about. Where ever his parents travel plans took him, Mason loved seeing new places and meeting new people. Mason's father being a geologist, introduced Mason to the natural beauty of this earth and encouraged him to love the outdoors and science. Mason became an avid rock and mineral collector and at times would boldly say he was already a geologist. Mason enjoyed hiking, swimming, attending sporting events, going to museums, skiing, dirt biking, archery, and was preparing for his first hunting season this coming fall. Mason was currently playing baseball with the DC Dolphins in Castle Rock having moved to Colorado just in December of 2012.
Mason will be remembered as a great and loving young man with a permanent smile on his face. A smile that could charm and uplift all he came in contact with. He was an encourager, a motivator and always willing to help anyone in need. He was a great older brother to his younger brother Carson, always protective, loving and they were certainly best friends. As a son, he was the sunshine in his parents' day from the first minute of his life. God's gift to this world, Mason was baptized in February and lived his life as well as any angel could here on Earth. The love and joy he gave to his parents made them blessed beyond all dreams. He was as perfect a son as any child could be. No child could be loved more!
Mason's gift of life will be remembered and cherished by all whom he knew and loved. His family and friends will certainly be better off having known him and though gone now, he will never be forgotten. A piece of Mason will live in us all until the day we reunite with him in God's heavenly kingdom.
