REICHELT, Dylan James February 4, 1993 - November 12, 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our son Dylan James Reichelt, who died in a car accident on Saturday, November 12th, 2011. Dylan is survived by his parents, Bill and Cathy, sisters, Keri and Keira, twin brother, Jesse, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Born and raised in Langley, Dylan had a passion for golf, hockey, Iron Maiden, Manchester City FC, working out, refereeing, fishing, boating, video games, wakeboarding, wake surfing, steak, and Caesar salad. He attended Murrayville Elementary, graduated from Brookswood Secondary in June 2011 and was in his first year of a business degree at Kwantlen University. Dylan enjoyed all forms of athletics, playing baseball, golf, soccer, ice hockey, street hockey with the boys, tennis in the park and he was always game to go to the gym. He enjoyed being a referee for Langley Minor Hockey and ""Gatorade"" boy for the BC Lions Home Games. He was ranked #1 in points with the Maple leaf golf tour in BC and had been invited to the MJT National Tour Championships in Orlando, Florida, along with his best friend and brother, Jesse. Dylan was charismatic, genuine, optimistic and never shy or awkward. He enjoyed life and excelled at anything he set his hand to. He was quick with a grin and a smart remark and was loved by everyone he met. A celebration of Dylan's life will be held on Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:00 am at the Christian Life Assembly, 21277 - 56th Avenue, Langley. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to RBC, account #00608-003-5018650 in support of the Dylan Reichelt Memorial Fund. Condolences may be offered at www.hendersonslangleyfunerals.com

Cathy and Bill, I spoke to Wayne yesterday and was so sorry to hear about the loss of your beoved son Dylan. I only met him a few times, but I remember him as being this friendly kid with a big personality and a vibrancy about himself that never ended. He would have ultimately been successful in whatever he chose to pursue in life. Sometimes life's just not fair. My heart goes out to your family. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Dear Reichelt Family,
We were so deeply saddened by the tradjic loss of Dylan. Although, I didn't know him personally, I had the pleasure of talking to him on a number of occassions at the golf course. He always had a kind, warm smile and was polite and helpful. My son has good memories of Dylan at school and on the golf course and speaks very highly of him. He admired him for his leadership, good sense of humour and one liners. We attended the service and it was clear that Dylan has touched the lives of many in his short time here and those memories will live forever. We hope that your family will find comfort in your shared memories and that it will help ease the pain a little.

With sincere sympathy,

Marg Fraser

Dear Cathy, Bill, Keira and Jesse
I am so deeply shocked and saddened by your loss. I never knew Dylan personally but I feel I know him, Keira and Jesse just from the discussions that Cathy and I would have about all the good things you were all doing and the successes that you have. I am sorry that I was unable to attend the service as we were away when I got the news. It is a great loss for you all that I can only just imagine. God obviously had other plans for Dylan's special talents. Cathy, I just want to hug you and I will come by this week.

With heartfelt love and sympathy for you all.
