Dylan J. Bushey, 15, of Franklin


FRANKLIN — Dylan J. Bushey, age 15, passed away on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2021. Dylan is the son of Eric and Michaela (Myrick) Bushey and he was born on Sept. 22, 2006, in St. Albans.

Dylan was larger than life, not only in stature, but his smile and personality could light up any room. He loved the outdoors and could usually be found riding his four-wheeler, hunting, fishing, or playing sports. He liked to play baseball, golf, and fell in love with football this year. Dylan was the teammate everybody hoped for, he would play any position the team needed him to, and his teammates were truly his family. He approached everything he did in life with that same attitude, which led him to his position as “Second in Command” at the Rainville Farm.

He was also born with music in his soul. Dylan would always sing, dance, and he could play several instruments and even taught himself how to play guitar. Dylan loved hard, and he was loved even harder. He was everyone’s favorite Dylan!

Dylan leaves behind his parents, Eric and Michaela Bushey of Franklin; his sister and best friend, Jordan Bushey and her significant other, who was like a brother to him, Hayzen Brow; his grandparents, Linda (Barnum) and Jay Hartman, Jeffrey and Wanda Bushey, and Steve and Cindy Myrick; his great- grandfathers, Walter Barnum and H. Kent Wright III; aunts and uncles, Heather Bushey, Courtney and Chris Norris, Tim and Tina Wright, Steve Myrick Jr. and his significant other Ashley Lane, Cybil Myrick and her significant other Jon Rigg, Silas Myrick, Molly and Josh Lontine, and Annie Hartman and her significant other Troy Peters; cousins Paxton and Mairin Norris, Brandon Bertrand, Rachael Burt, Bruce Wright, Tucker, Trevor and Timmy Wright, Donald Bartholomew, Eliza Myrick, and Savannah Rigg; special cousins Paul Barnum and Brooke Rainville; so many close friends to mention, but especially Logan and Jake with whom he was always driving tractor or fixin’ something; and many other extended family members. Dylan was predeceased by his great-grandparents, Shirley Barnum, Wayne and Aleta Bushey, Patricia Wright, and Bob and Rita Myrick.
