Dillon Parker Meenderink
Our son and brother, Dillon, 19, passed away unexpectedly of unknown causes, at his home in Hooper, Utah.
He was born at Mc-Kay Dee Hospital on January 29, 2002. Dillon was an incredibly loving old soul with a heart of gold. Dillon always looked for the best in everybody and was often the peacemaker in any given situation. He loved his family and friends. Dillon graduated from Fremont High School in 2020. He spent his time playing guitar and doing chemistry experiments. He was incredibly smart and gifted in all things he set out to do.
He wanted to help people in any way he could. He was loved by all who knew him. Dillon had many friends and family who he would drop anything he was doing to help. Dillon was extremely opinionated and knowledgeable often spending his time researching science and politics. He had various few jobs most recently working at Heritage Park Care Center in the kitchen, Motor Vu Drive In, throughout High school during his summers. Dillon aspired to be a physical therapist.
