Valentine was born on December 15, 2020 in Bristol. His favorite color was blue, he loved cars and the Minions, watching Paw Patrol playing with his dog Max, wrestling and playing with his sisters and learning about dinosaurs. One of his most favorite things to do was ride the school bus! He loved doing that and looked forward to it every morning. He was also a lover of tools especially screwdrivers. Valentine was also a student at Strong Elementary School of Southington in Ms. Neagles’s Pre K-3 class where he made lots of friends. In his three short years with us, Valentine touched many lives. Now he has earned his angel wings and will watch over us. Besides his parents, he is survived by his two sisters; Felicity and Lynette Bayer both of Southington; paternal grandparents: Mark and Linda Bayer of Bristol; maternal grandparents: Wayne and Lisa Engle of Thomaston; Aunts and uncles: Sue, Kelly, Tom, and Ray Engle, James and Christyne Bate; several cousins .
