Dylan was born to Stephen and Lana (Johnson) Roberts in Montevideo, MN on March 10th, 1976. He attended school in Fargo, ND, where he played hockey and baseball.

He was kind, generous, and full of gratitude. Dylan was blessed by the birth of his daughter, Kaliya Roberts, who was the greatest joy of his life. He enjoyed sharing with her his love of the outdoors, music, art, and travel.

    Oh Steve and Lana, our hearts are breaking for you. I’ll never forget when Dylan was attending Woodrow Wilson, and Steve told me just before graduation, Dylan called Steve and said he was going to quit school and follow the Grateful Dead. And Steve said that was fine, but in the morning he would be reporting his van stolen. We have laughed about that for years including just a few weeks ago! Helps to remember the fun times…Hugs and prayers.

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I haven’t seen Dylan in a lot of years but I remember his smile and laugh were always contagious.

    Lana and Steve, I am so sorry to see Dylan has passed. I am thinking of you during this difficult time! My heart breaks for you.

    I used to play music with Dylan way back in the day. I was on drums and he played guitar and sang. We always had a blast whether we got together with other musicians or if it was just him and I. He was an absolute natural when it came to music. Those are great memories of my time with him that I will always hold on to.

  5. C Dawes says:

    My family and I are so sorry to read of the tragic, unexpected death of Dylan and send our deepest heartfelt sympathy. May your precious memories through the years and the future resurrection hope we share of seeing our loved ones again as our Lord Jesus promised at John 11:25, give you strength and comfort in the times ahead.
    With prayers,
    The Dawes family
