Dylan, age 25, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, February 24, 2022, at Opelousas General Health System. It was there Dylan gave the gift of life through organ donation following his passing. Dylan was a strong young man of 25.
He bought his first home in 2015. He started dialysis in 2016; the whole time working as much as possible. He sold his first home and bought his second one in 2018.
