BRYSOM ARNEL DILLON

DANVILLE — Brysom Arnel Dillon, 3, of Danville, passed away on July 24, 2013, at Carle Hospital in Urbana.

The son of Jeremy Dillon and Kelly Neal, he was born on Jan. 19, 2010, in Urbana.

Brysom is survived by his parents; brothers, Cole, Hunter and Wyatt Dillon of Danville; sisters, Abby and Madison Dillon of Danville; grandparents, Jerry and Kelly Dillon of Danville, Judyth Henderson of Danville and Richard Henderson of Ohio; and great-grandmothers, Shirley Reffett of Danville and Viola Gritton of Tilton. Also surviving are several aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.

During his short time with us, Brysom touched the hearts of everyone he met. He loved playing with his brothers and sisters. He was everyone’s little helper, and he loved fixing things with Pops. He also loved monster trucks, especially his Big Beast. Brysom was Papa’s master gardener, a great story teller and a zombie slayer.

Awesome Brysom is our hero. Through the loss of his own life, he helped several other kids by donating his organs.

A celebration of Brysom’s life will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 30, at Sunset Funeral Home in Danville, with Pastor Jeremy Zerkle officiating, and burial at Oakhill Cemetery in Danville. A visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m. Monday, July 29, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home, in Danville.

Memorials may be made in Brysom’s name to Hall Bros. Racing, 1401 CR 2400 N, Champaign, IL 61822. Condolences may be left at www.sunsetfuneralhome.com.
