Karson was born on November 5, 2014, to Jasmine and Kaleb Torbet at Toledo Hospital. Karson was in the 2nd grade at Wauseon Primary School where he loved to do arts, crafts, and music.
Karson had an infectious smile and hug where he brought life and joy to everyone who saw him.

Karson had an active imagination where he could turn anything into a sword or a wand.
Karson dreamed of becoming a veterinarian and having a pet Kangaroo.
Karson was able to find his passion when he joined the Wauseon Swim Team, and he told people “I’m going to be the next Michael Phelps.”
