Here is the complete obituary:

William “Mason” Bloom fought a courageous battle against osteosarcoma until Monday, May 23, 2022 when he passed at Nationwide Children’s Hospital surrounded by his family. Mason was born to William “Jeff” and Michelle Bloom on June 11, 1999. He is preceded in death by grandparents William “Bill” and Janet Bloom. Mason leaves behind his beloved parents Jeff and Michelle Bloom, sisters Mallory (Ben) McPheron and Morgan (Travis) Downing. Grandparents Robert “Bob” and Carolyn Lambert. Maternal aunt Tina (Mike) Manns, paternal aunts Jennie (Charlie) Byers and Jackie (Gary) McNutt, many loving cousins, and his adored niece and nephew Madeline and Carter McPheron, with another niece (Downing) on the way.

Mason was a 2018 graduate of Kenton High school where he was a member of the football, swim, and tennis teams. Mason also followed in his family’s footsteps in receiving his State FFA degree as a member of the Kenton FFA just like his grandfather, father, and sisters. Mason continued his education at Toledo University pursing elementary education and participating in the Rocket Disc Golf Club until his fight with cancer got in the way. Mason’s role in the community transitioned from athlete to coach with Mason sharing his knowledge with all the youth involved in the Kenton Stingrays swim team, the Hardin County YMCA Sea Dragons swim team, and the Kenton 8th Grade Football Team. Mason also loved the team that was constantly “firing him up”: the Cleveland Browns. He was always willing to talk, watch, or teach football.
Mason’s other passion was disc golf: when Mason wasn’t sleeping, he could be found playing disc golf with his best friends Steven, Connor, Parker, Trent, Alex, and his father, who he lovingly referred to as “Jefferson”; putting into his disc golf basket in the family’s living room; or watching disc golf videos.

Mason was well loved by the community around him and greatly appreciated the support provided to both him and his family.

Visitation will be held on Friday, May 27, 2022 from 3:00 – 7:00 PM at the SCHINDEWOLF-STOUT-CRATES FUNERAL HOME. A funeral service will begin at 9:00 AM on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at the SCHINDEWOLF-STOUT-CRATES FUNERAL HOME. Burial will follow in Grove Cemetery.
