The Life of Dylan Alexander Sweat
Dylan Alexander Sweat, 14, of Olathe passed away on August 8, 2023.
He was born May 5, 2009 (Cinco de Mayo) at Shawnee Mission Hospital. Dylan was an incoming freshman at Gardner-Edgerton High School. He loved to draw anime in his spare time. Dylan enjoyed playing X-Box and built an amazing world in MineCraft. He would always tell fun facts by starting the conversation off with “Did you know…?” This led to his parents making him a shirt for his birthday that said “did you know?” He opened his gift and shook his head, laughing and said “I can’t believe you had this made”. Dylan loved the beach. He was known at school as Dorito Dylan. Over the last 7 years he bonded with his cat by playing ball with him.
