Dylan Edward Perdue Obituary

Dylan Edward Perdue passed away on March 4, 2024, at the age of 28. Born on August 12, 1995, in Valley, Alabama, Dylan's life was a testament to his funny, selfless, and spirited nature, which left an indelible mark on the hearts of those he touched.

Dylan was the cherished son of Travis and Leslie Perdue, a beloved fiancé to Kimberly Courtney Perdue, and a devoted father to his son, Riley Perdue. His strong family bonds were further reflected in his close relationship with his brother, Jarod (Cheyenne) Perdue, and his adored nieces, Sunnie and Stella Perdue. He was a treasured grandson to Debbie and Bob Von Hollen, Ray and Shelly Perdue, and great-grandson to Hazel Perdue. Dylan's life was enriched by the love and guidance of his grandparents, and though he was preceded in death by his twin sons, James Edward Perdue and William Ray Perdue, and his grandparents, Sonny and Sarah Myers, their memories continued to inspire him every day.

A proud 2013 graduate of Valley High School, Dylan's academic journey led him to earn an associate's degree in IT. He contributed his technical skills to AFNI before pursuing his passion for helping others by working towards a second associate's degree to become an EMT. His dedication to service was evident through his work with CARE EMS and Southern Ambulance in Montgomery, and with Tallapoosa EMS, where he served his community with distinction.

Dylan was a member of Calvary Baptist Church. 

Dylan's interests were as diverse as they were passionate. He was an accomplished swimmer, having been a member of his high school swim team, and he carried his love for the water throughout his life. His musical talents shone brightly as part of the high school marching band, and his fascination with mythology often found him lost in stories of ancient gods and heroes. Dylan's playful spirit came alive when he spent time with his nieces or when he engaged in friendly competition through video games.

Those who knew Dylan will remember him for his quick wit and his ability to bring laughter to any room. His selflessness was evident not only in his professional life as an EMT but also in every personal interaction. He was a man who lived by the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: "To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." Dylan's legacy is one of love, laughter, and the countless lives he touched both personally and through his work.

Dylan's spirit will be carried forward by those who loved him most: his fiancée, Kimberly, who shared in his dreams and aspirations; his son, Riley, who will grow up with stories of his father's courage and kindness; his parents, Travis and Leslie, who instilled in him the values of compassion and humor; his brother, Jarod, sister-in-law, Cheyenne, and his nieces, who will miss his playful antics; and his extended family of grandparents and great-grandmother, who will hold his memory dear.

As we say goodbye to Dylan Edward Perdue, we celebrate a life lived with joy, a heart given freely to others, and a soul that has left a lasting impression. He will be deeply missed, but the warmth of his laughter and the depth of his kindness will never be forgotten.
