It is with much sorrow and the deepest love that we make known that our beloved  Son, Brother, Nephew, Uncle, Grandson, Cousin, and friend, Dylan Patrick Gesme,  passed away on Saturday, October 6th, 2018. 

Dylan was incredibly smart, and always took pride in striving to understand the  world outside of himself. He was a fiercely loyal advocate for his family,  friends, animals, nature, and those less fortunate than him. He was a dedicated  and hard-working individual who never shied away from challenges. 

Dylan’s openness, approachability, sense of humor, and outgoing nature were  admired by those who knew him, whether they knew him briefly, or for his entire  life. Of all of his attributes, what stood out most was that Dylan was a deeply  compassionate person with an unquenchable thirst to see others happy and at  peace. Dylan leaves behind a legacy of loving others with every fiber of his being. 

As humility and the easement of the suffering of others were Dylan’s ultimate  life goals, we ask that in lieu of flowers, you join us in contributing, in his  honor, to worthy causes with those missions at their core: American Foundation  for Suicide Prevention; Brain & Behavior Research Foundation; the American  Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA); or a local animal  shelter/humane society that is close to your heart. 

Dylan is survived by his Mother, Cynthia West-Gesme; his Father, Thomas Gesme;  his Brothers, Michael and Steven (wife Tabitha); his Sister, Nicole Gesme-Park  (husband William); his Niece, Austyn; and his Nephew, Declan. 

Services to be held from 6-8pm, Thursday, October 11th at Boles Funeral Home,  425 W Pennsylvania Avenue, Southern Pines, NC with a private gathering for  family and close friends following on Friday.

Services are entrusted to Boles Funeral Home of Southern Pines.
