At the age of 5 years and 9 months, was surrounded by love and went to be with the angels, on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, after a courageous battle with Batten Disease. He was the little Angel and loving son to Shawn and Christine Smith; and cherished brother to Eric and Emily Smith; beloved grandson to Patty Smith and the late Stephen and Cathy Holderbaum, and the late Raymond; adored nephew to Shannon Smith, Ricky (Marlo) Holderbaum and Heather Miller; and special cousin to Samantha Miller. Dylan always gave hugs and made you laugh over the little things. He taught us more than we could teach him and was truly a blessing. He will never be forgotten but will be extremely missed. Family and friends are welcome at the BEINHAUER FUNERAL HOME, 2828 Washington Rd., McMurray (724-941-3211), on Sunday from 1-4 p.m., where a casual dinner will be served from 4:15 to 6 p.m., followed by a ceremony at 6:15 p.m., and a balloon release at 7 p.m. If you would like to make a memorial contribution, we ask that you make it in Dylan's memory to PA Batten Disease Support, P.O. Box 113303, Pittsburgh, PA 15241. Please add and view tributes at:
