December 28, 2002 - May 13, 2021
Dylan Harms, age 18, of Wilmington passed away Thursday, May 13, 2021 at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood. He was born December 28, 2002 in Kankakee, the son of Tony & Candace (Cadle) Harms. Dylan had worked for Door Dash and Good Will. He was a beloved son, brother, grandson, and uncle-to-be. Dylan was a kind soul who had so much love in his heart for those close to him. Just recently he had decided he wanted to go through with schooling to become an EMT/Firefighter because it was important to him to help people. Dylan said he didn’t’ think a job without helping people would ever be fulfilling for him. He was a young man of many talents. Some of those talents included art, photography, tattooing, and ESPECIALLY music. In fact, he taught himself at a young age to play the drums and guitar. Whatever he set his mind to, he would accomplish it no matter how hard the feat. Whether it was an instrument, the Rubix cube, yo-yo-ing, drawing a picture until he got it just right, or building something. Dylan had a passion for nature and adventure alike. He was a hiker, biker, and skateboarder. He would always be outside if he had the opportunity. Dylan loved taking his rescue dog, Bailey, with him camping or on adventures. Dylan’s personality had all sorts of wonderful attributes. He didn’t like to be like everyone else. He believed everyone should be their own unique selves. Unique he was. Dylan’s style was all his own, all “Dylan”. He was colorful and vibrant and always changing his hair color. Dylan was a tenacious, sensitive, caring, protective, and compassionate person. He said people always told him “you’re just the sweetest”. We as his family, can concur with that statement. Our Dylan IS the sweetest and he will always be remembered as such, along with many other things. We love you Dylan, and that will never, EVER, change. Dylan’s family made the decision to give the gift of life to others through organ donation. Through the Gift of Hope organization, several people will have a chance at life. Surviving are his parents, Tony & Candace Harms of Wilmington; his sister, Aubrey Harms of Wilmington; two brothers and one sister-in-law, Wesley & Annie Harms of Manteno and Austin Harms of Wilmington; his maternal grandparents, Ed & Cherlyn Cadle of Bourbonnais; and his paternal grandfather, Keith Harms of Bradley. Dylan is preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Cathy Harms. Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m. Thursday, May 20, 2021 at Clancy-Gernon Funeral Home in Bourbonnais. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, May 21, 2021 also at the funeral home. Please wear a face mask and practice social distancing guidelines if you have not been vaccinated.
