Lachlan McIntosh Tannery was a Seneca, SC, resident who was diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia (JMML) in the summer of 2014. Like most two-year-old little boys, Lachlan was energetic, curious, and full of life. Some of Lachlan’s favorite things were watching Thomas the Train, playing with his twin brother, Calhoun, and ignoring his baby brother, Owen. Lachlan loved his Clemson Tigers and like any true Clemson fan, his favorite color was orange. A true Southern gentleman, his most favorite food was bacon washed down with his gran’s sweet tea. Lachlan had a love for tractors and was also quite the fashionable fella–with a style ranging from bowties and seersuckers to Southern Fried Cotton tees and Chuck Taylors.
After a successful bone marrow transplant in November 2014, Lachlan relapsed. He gained his angel wings on May 7, 2015. In his brief two years on earth, Lachlan united a community in love and continues to bring hope to others through the legacy he leaves behind.
