Dylan was a member of the First Baptist Church of Fairbury and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at PCHS.
Dylan was a gift to everyone who knew him. He was a special boy that grew into a special young man.
Dylan was an adventurous spirit who could always find something to climb, a prank to pull, and a furry dog to love on.
He enjoyed spending time in nature, especially in the mountains. He was a creative artist who not only could sketch amazing things on paper, but he also, with God’s hand, could paint a sunset in the sky.
He loved spending time with his mom and dad and older brother Trey, whether on family vacations or hanging out in the backyard. He brought laughter and smiles to his Grandparents aunts, uncles, and cousins, and relished good times with his teammates, classmates, and friends.
Dylan was a talented, yet humble, athlete who brought joy to all who watched him play. He had heart for The Lord, and has now won his biggest victory yet, as he is safe in the arms of Jesus.
