Dylan was born on 12/14/1998, in Cedar City, Utah to his parents Pamela Stumo, and Donald Flint. Although Iowa has been home for the last 15+ years Dylan has lived many places Utah, Nevada, Arizona (a couple different times) he has visited many more and has made friends/ acquaintances all over the country.

From a young age Dylan was always on the go, being adventurous was his calling, he was always looking for the best fishing spot, the biggest reptiles, chopping wood while visiting his Stumo relatives at the farm with his Grandpa Paul, spending time with all his siblings, he also enjoyed his conversations and close bond he shares with his cousin Chloe they didn’t hang out and get together often but their bond is untouchable. He learned construction at a young age while building things with his bare hands, along with his brother Dakotah, and mentor Gary.

Dylan had a work ethic that could not be matched. Dylan started doing small side jobs at the age of 12 years old with Gary and his brother Dakotah. From then on, he was always working anything he could do to make his own money. Dylan would always try to include his mom brothers and sister in his side jobs too. Dylan truly was a jack of all trades he knew how to work on vehicles, all ends of the construction trades, he could do anything from roofing, siding, framing, concrete and everything in between he became quite the master painter painting houses with his father Donald. He even worked as a cashier at a few local convenience stores.

Dylan lived his life with an awe of the world, constantly wanting to learn and experience life’s best adventures. If Dylan said he did or was going to do something he meant it. He truly did live life to the fullest. Hearing a 4-wheeler rev up in Dylan’s presence was always a given. Anything with an engine for that matter. He had a passion for all things that “GO”, and loved taking up that passion with his brothers and best friends. His love for his family was limitless and unconditional.

Dylan always loved his dog Tazz, and also his companion support dog that stood by him throughout his whole fight until the very end, Brutus. His snakes Scarlett, and Butters were also special and close to his heart. Dylan was firm in his morals, and beliefs, but never judged anyone other than himself. He was a realist he didn’t sugar coat anything he told you what it was and what it wasn’t.

Dylan would tell you what you needed to hear not what you wanted to hear. He will always be remembered for his immense generosity, independence, and compassion for others, but more importantly the hard driven work ethic, and moral character he had, as well as the love he had for all animals. Dylan’s connection to animals was truly something to admire and behold.

Dylan is preceded in death by his Grandmother Verna Stumo, Grandmother Lydia Flint, his Uncle’s Dave, Nelson, and Lowell Stumo.

Dylan was survived by his mother Pamela Stumo, father Donald Flint, brothers Oliver Morehouse, Ben Morehouse, Dakotah Flint, and Sister Samantha Morehouse, (favorite) cousin Chloe Maskarina, grandfather Paul Stumo, Grandmother and Grandfather; Jackie and Mick Keyser (Omi and Poppo), Uncle Brian, Aunt Jo and John Stumo, Aunts Liz Reich’s, Judy (Mike) Lee, and Elnora Stumo.
