Gabe Marshall, the Hutchinson boy who bravely battled brain cancer, died early Friday morning.

In a Facebook post on Friday, Gabe's father Josh said Gabriel had gained his wings at 12:03 a.m.

Friday night, Gabe's family says on its public support page that Gabe's funeral is set for 10 a.m. Feb. 10 at Hutchinson's Park Place Christian Church.

You may remember 9-year-old Gabe's story after a surgery left the side of Gabe's head scarred, his father went to a local tattoo artist to get a scar tattoo to match his sons.

"I didn't like him calling himself a monster because to me he's beautiful," said Josh Marshall.

The photo went viral on social media with requests to hear their story.

Six months later, the brain tumor would return and take his life.

"He is my superhero. He has shown me what life really is about and how to cherish the most out of everything."
