Dylan's death has broken the hearts of his parents, Chris and Karen nee Teitelbaum, his brother Ethan, his grandfather Leonard Teitelbaum, his uncles Howard S. Teitelbaum, Howie Teitelbaum and Don Buckner Jr., his aunts Jane Waldren and Meg Buckner, his cousins Daniel and Andrew Teitelbaum and Sarah Buckner, and countless friends, coaches and teammates.
