Dylan was born April 5, 1999 in Jacksonville, FL. He had a good, but rough childhood. When he was born he was in NICU for 8 days because of the amount of fluid in his lungs. He was diagnosed with asthma when he was a toddler, and had multiple ear infections, which resulted in 3 repairs to his eardrum. He has had a broken arm, was hit in his face with a baseball, and was in a total of 6 wrecks from 12 yrs old to right before he turned 23, in which 3 of those wrecks should have killed him but didn’t. The 2nd wreck he was in, was 4 days before he turned 17 and his femur was shattered in a near head on collision. He was given fentanyl while in life flight and came home on morphine. I truly believe this is where his addiction with opioids began. The last wreck was Dec 2021 and he ended up in the hospital, where he was later arrested for DUI and then jailed for 6 days. I eventually talked him into going to rehab at The Salvation Army in Jacksonville, FL and dropped him off on Jan 6, 2022. He was kicked out 6 weeks later for using marijuana, although he would say his drugs of choice were meth and fentanyl. He moved in with his sister and was doing really well, trying to find a job and stay out of trouble, until he went out one night and got one pill. That one pill contained fentanyl and xylazine. He went to sleep on Saturday afternoon April 23, 2022 and never woke up. He was found on Sunday morning April 24, 2022 by his sisters best friend. Now he sleeps in peace and will never be in pain again, while we mourn his death everyday.
Dylan was a self taught guitar player, avid gardener, and loved playing video games and hanging with his friends. He was loved my his mom, 4 sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. He was a very respectful and respectable young man. MANY people have came up to me and told me how much they respected him and he respected them. He was very laid back, but a hard worker and helped when he could. He is loved by so many!! He was my only son and a mamas boy. He should be here !!
