MAINEVILLE, Ohio (WXIX) - Friends and family are in mourning after a former Little Miami Preschooler passed away, the school district announced Thursday.

Six-year-old Nyles Cecchinni passed away peacefully on Jan. 27, according to his obituary.

“When we think about Nyles, we remember his infectious smile, his love for Mickey Mouse, and how much he enjoyed being around his peers in class,” Little Miami Early Childhood staff said. “Nyles had a way of making everyone laugh and getting everyone’s attention. He would place his arm or hand on anyone who came close to show his affection. He radiated joy and both staff and students loved him.”

Nyles was not enrolled in Little Miami’s Panther Preschool at the time of his passing, the district said.

A visitation for Nyles is being held at Tufts Schildmeyer Funeral Home on Feb. 3 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will be followed by a Celebration of Life ceremony at 4 p.m.

Little Miami Schools says they have no additional comments at this time.
