Dylan was a gentle spirited young man who always had a shoulder to lean on to any friend in need. He would drop anything he was doing to be there for someone who just needed to talk and was able to provide comfort through his listening and advice. He was loved by his many friends and family and will be dearly missed.
His enjoyments were playing video games, watching wrestling and the Jets. He was wealth of information regarding music, his knowledge crossed all genre’s and generations. You could just ask and he could name the band, the song, and the history behind it. His love of music trivia began as a young boy from his grandfather who sparked the interest by quizzing him about songs and artists. Attending concerts was an all-time favorite pastime, he also liked to go camping with his family.
In addition to his parents, Steve and Mary, he is survived by a sister, Destiny Yeager of Anita; paternal grandparents, Carol Mitchell and husband Norman of Punxsutawney, and Guy Yeager and wife Sandy of Rossiter; uncles, Mark Kaylor and Tiffany Buffington of Glen Campbell, Ed Kaylor and wife Vickie of Blairsville; aunts, Brenda Kaylor of Punxsutawney, Tammy Campbell of Seneca, and Nicole Martinez and husband Oscar of Alabama.
