Tristan Paul Schupbach was born on January 3, 2006 at Northside Hospital in Atlanta Georgia to Wyatt and Laura Schupbach. Tristan was 11 years old when he passed away and lived in Roswell Georgia his entire life. He was NOT an average 11 year old! Tristan attended Mountain Park Elementary where he excelled as an A student and was in the TAG (Talented & Gifted) program. He helped others acclimate in social situations through a group called Circle of Friends; Tristan did this outside of this group so it was a perfect fit for him.
Tristan was always a leader. He participated in the school play 1st-3rd grade and got a lead role as “Scar” in The Lion King in 4th Grade. He was a natural on stage and had been rehearsing to be Captain Hook in Peter Pan that was in February 2017.
Tristan started playing basketball when he was 4 and football when he was 8. He wake-boarded, snow-boarded, drove go karts and snowmobiles and did Life BIG. He was good at anything he tried. He was the fastest athlete whether on the field or the court. Tristan was a big brother to Colton, his best bud. Colton will miss his brother so much.
Tristan left an impression on EVERYONE he came in contact with. He was funny, witty, prayerful and considerate. He served as an altar boy at St. Peter Chanel in Roswell Georgia and had an amazing relationship with God. His parents miss him deeply. It was the honor of their lives to be his parents. Tristan is with Jesus in Heaven.
In addition to his parents and younger brother, Tristan is survived by his grandparents, Paul and Deb Schupbach of Wyoming, ILL., Ed and Peg Sullivan, Mary Sullivan all of Mundelein, ILL.; great-grandmother, Veronica Heinz of Princeville, ILL.; aunts and uncles, Tom and Katie Connolly, Ted Sullivan, Schuyler and Mary Ellen Schupbach, Doug and Adrianne Leone and Clint and Natalie Baldwin; 10 cousins along numerous extended family and friends.
One of Tristan’s favorite summer activities was attending Camp WinShape. Tristan found the mixture of fun, worship, and prayer magical. He would be grateful for the opportunity to afford children without the means this same experience.
