to Las Vegas when he was a baby. He graduated from Rancho High School in 1998. He played the saxophone and later joined the marching band and community band at UNLV so he could keep up with his saxophone skills.

     Dylan loved music and enjoyed attending concerts.

One of his favorite things to do was to look up at the stars at night. Dylan was a fighter. He fought through serious health challenges his entire life. He survived leukemia, a bone marrow transplant, heart surgery, diabetes and years of hospital visits. He spent his last moments surrounded by his family. He was loving, selfless, and fiercely loyal.

    Dylan, you taught me so much about enduring trials with strength & grace….

    “So close no matter how far.
    Couldn’t be much more from the heart.
    Forever trusting who we are.
    And nothing else matters “ -Metallica

  • Dylan, i may have only known you for a short time, about 7 yrs, but you made such a huge impression on me. You were a hard worker, never complained and never let on when you weren’t feeling well. Leprechaun, you will be missed.. I am honored to have known you and you will always have a place in my heart.. See you in Valhalla.. Love you lil bro

    One of the few people I’ve ever met that could keep up with me at work. I may have had him by a foot but he always stood eye to eye with me. Where ever he is is a better place because he is there.
