MULLENS, W. Va (WVVA)-- Many Wyoming County residents pay their final respects to a boy they loved, who left them too soon.

12-year-old Kaimyn Anderson's funeral was held Tuesday in Mullens.

Kaimyn died after he collapsed at the Wyoming east vs. Westside football game last Friday.

By the looks of the crowd gathered to say goodbye to him, kaimyn was beloved by the whole community. People lined the streets outside the church where his service was held in Mullens.

Many Wyoming East football players and Kaimyn's fellow rebels from Mullens Middle came out with their families.

People there tell WVVA Kaimyn was a good friend, and a great athlete who will be dearly missed.

"We support each other," said Douglas Thorn, one of Wyoming East's football coaches. Douglas prays with players before and after games. He said at the rivalry game where Kaimyn passed away, both sides of the crowd came together for a prayer.

"We laugh with each other, we also mourn with each other," he said.

Thorn said Kaimyn would have been an excellent asset to the Wyoming East Warriors.

"He definitely was talented and we were looking forward to when he grew up a little more, to come to our high school."

Kaimyn's death is not considered suspicious. His friends tell us he would want them to remember the best in life and keep going.

From Kaimyn's memorial Facebook page, WVVA has learned about his memorial fund.

"The Kaimyn Anderson Fund" is set up at the First Peoples Bank in Mullens. Funds will go to his family to help with funeral costs as well as other financial needs.

You can also mail your donation to the bank at:
