Condolence from Hanna DiDomenico on September 7th, 2021 12:03 pm

My love and support go to your family in this devastating time. I first met dylan when my step-brother patrick drury had him over. I was always intimidated by him for being older and cool but to my surprise he was nothing was great. All i wanted was to hang with pat, dyl and ant and they always included me. they gave me the confidence to be myself and not care what anyone thought. He is always going to be like a brother to me and i can’t believe i’ve lost another. all love and prayers without dylan here.

Condolence from Katherine Murray on September 8th, 2021 3:45 pm

I have no words and I am still in complete disbelief. He was one of my best friends for 11 years and I was so incredibly lucky to have known this amazing soul. Always had me laughing, was always a shoulder to cry on and was someone I couldn’t ever get sick of. We went to homecoming together senior year, and he was the best and most handsome date. We were all so blessed to have had him for the we did, and now we have one handsome guardian angel and an extra sparkling star in the night sky. I love you Dylan, more than I could ever express.

Condolence from Jenny and Jeff Braas on September 7th, 2021 2:36 pm

So dreadfully sad and sorry. Love you so much. His soul has been set free and he is a step away in the next room or zipping around in an amazing sports car., until you meet again. Huge hugs forever., my friends.

I only met Dylan once through my daughter Jessica. She first met him through ceramics class at Township. I don’t even know what to say. From what she has told me, he is one beautiful young man. In many ways. To his family and friends…my heart breaks for you. I am truly so sorry for your loss. Julie H. Lyons

Condolence from Claudia Gallegos on September 8th, 2021 8:30 pm

Dear Jane, Kelly, and Madeleine,
I met Dylan the day he moved to the apartment at the Reef Club. Instantly, he became my protege.
Funny kid, full of life. We talked about music and the love for fancy cars.
He looked for my help many times, and we developed a beautiful friendship. I was there also the last few months here when things were not so good, he still look for my help, and I was there for him.
I keep dear to my heart the big tight hug he gave me as he jump in the car on the way back home.
He was a reflection of his beautiful family.
I am heartbroken with the departure from this life of my dear friend Dylan. I will forever miss him.
My love to you,
