Dylan Ronald Chase, 28, passed away October 29th, 2020, in Fort Mill, SC.
Dylan was born August 25th, 1992 in Bristol, Connecticut, to Melissa Lamy Chase and Jody Chase. He moved to South Carolina in his early teens and graduated from Fort Mill High School in 2010.
A born adventurer, Dylan loved to travel and experience the great outdoors. He was an avid hiker and kayaker, and spent much of 2020 exploring his grandparents home state of Montana. When not enjoying the great outdoors with his furry sidekick Missy, Dylan could be found cheering for his beloved New England Patriots, New York Yankees, or repeatedly watching every season of The Office. Dylan was humble and compassionate, intelligent and hilarious, hardworking and headstrong, ambitious and determined, with a quirky humor and quick wit that was loved by all those who knew him. Dylan thoroughly enjoyed a game of Call of Duty, never met a fast food drive thru window he didn’t like, and was famously known to polish off entire trays of his Aunty’s brownies. He excelled at every sport he tried, mastered any game he played, and meticulously researched every topic that peaked his interest. Extremely excited and passionate about a career in aviation, Dylan was just about to fulfill his years long dream of going to school to be an Aviation Mechanic here in Charlotte.
In addition to his parents, Dylan is survived by his little sister, Shelbi Chase and her fiance Matt Richards, his little brother Nathan Paradis, his Aunty Michele Lamy Beaulieu, and her husband Uncle Chad, Grandmother Sally Lamy, Grandmother Priscilla Burn, Papa John Burn, Grandfather Ronald Chase, and many additional loving aunts, uncles, cousins, family members, and friends. Dylan was preceded in death by his Grandfather Robert Lamy.
Dylan’s services are private, and next summer we will be scattering his ashes in the places he loved the most, the beautiful mountains and lakes of Montana.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Partnership of Drug Free Kids.
We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, and though
We cannot see you, you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
