March 14, 1999 – March 1, 2012
Dylan Randy Nordquist of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at the age of 12 years in Edmonton due to heart complications.
Dylan was born in Calgary at the Foothill Medical Centre to Randy and France and to his big sister Kristina. He attended Father Doucet Elementary School and was currently attending Our Lady of Peace Junior High School.
Dylan was an avid sports fan who enjoyed going to the Flames’ games with his dad, spending time with his family in British Columbia during the summer and traveling to tropical destinations were some of his most favorite things to do, although Dylan was happiest when we had cozy family nights together.
Dylan is survived by his parents Randy and France; sister Kristina; grandparents Dick and Ruby; grandma Claire; aunties, Sandra (Kim), Rae, Danielle and Lucie; uncles, Claude, Serge and Michel; and many cousins whom he adored.
Dylan has touched many hearts in his short time with us and was a caring, considerate, kind, funny and forever loving young man who had many friends, too many to list although he had some real close buddies: Jack Haverstock, Jeremy Swan, Lorenzo Pornasdoro, Kyle Bodar, Patrick Jadzinski, Evan Moldenhauer and Brook Rivard.
Dylan was predeceased by great-grandma Carpenter.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church (1414 Shawnessy Boulevard S.W.) on Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. In Dylan’s memory, please wear a sports jersey.
