Dylan McBrien – Chattanoogan.com
Dylan McBrien passed away on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 in Mobile, AL. He was 17 years old.
Dylan was born on August 2, 2004. He is survived by his parents, Michelle and Matthew McBrien, his two older brothers, Mathew and Derrek McBrien (Mobile, AL), paternal grandfather, Delbert McBrien (Chattanooga), grandmother Kindergarten, Denise Durham (Jeff) (Soddy Daisy), Uncle, Brian Campbell (Joccelyn) (Franklinton, NC) as well as many other uncles, aunts and cousins.
He was predeceased by his “grandfather” Glen “Sparky” Campbell, his grandmother, Betty McBrien, his great-grandparents, Andy and Margaret Cranfield and Robert and Margaret McBrien.
From a young age, Dylan developed a love for all things Lego, video games, travel, food, water and fishing. When not fishing or traveling, he spent his time researching and finding new places to fish and new lures to try.
He loved LSU Football and was a huge fan. A very exciting memory for Dylan was meeting Coach O one day at a car wash in Mandeville, LA where he had his picture taken with him and got his autograph. That day was only recently passed, where he was able to catch his precious Sheepshead and Redfish on Dauphin Island, AL.
He was born in Chattanooga, and during his 17 years lived in Miami, Florida, Central and Southern California, Mandeville, Louisiana; and Mobile, Alabama. Dylan loved to travel and he loved the water.
Dylan had a keen interest in the world around him and had recently developed a passion for welding and thrived in a welding school. He hoped to travel a lot to fish, make a career in welding and taste the local foods of the region. He won’t have that chance, but he wished others had that opportunity. He will be sadly missed by all of us.
The family is asking anyone wishing to make a donation to donate to CCA (Costal Conservation Association) or The Epilepsy Foundation in their honor, in lieu of flowers.
A Celebration of Life will be held Monday, September 13, 4 to 7 p.m. in Chattanooga, Hamilton Funeral Home on Hixson Pike.
