Dylan was born April 14, 1987, to Debbie Chagnon and Dick Raines.
Dylan had a great passion for the outdoors. He loved spending time out on the farm, four-wheeling, hunting, or just a spur of the moment hike in the woods. He was a collector of fine automobiles. Baseball, hockey and time spent with his teammates and friends were very important to him. Most of all, he loved people, individualism, family and life, along with his special love for Joy.
