Dylan J. Bushey

FRANKLIN Dylan J. Bushey, age 15, passed away on Tuesday, December 7, 2021.

Dylan is the son of Eric & Michaela (Myrick) Bushey and he was born on September 22, 2006 in St. Albans.

Dylan was larger than life, not only in stature but his smile and personality could light up any room. He loved the outdoors and could usually be found riding his four-wheeler, hunting, fishing, or playing sports. He liked to play baseball, golf, and fell in love with football this year. Dylan was the teammate everybody hoped for, he would play any position the team needed him to, and his teammates were truly his family. He approached everything he did in life with that same attitude, which led him to his position as “Second in Command” at the Rainville Farm. He was also born with music in his soul. Dylan would always sing, dance, and he could play several instruments and even taught himself how to play guitar. Dylan loved hard, and he was loved even harder. He was everyone’s favorite Dylan!
