Dylan Taylor Moen

Date of Death - May 29, 2018

Dylan Taylor Moen, age 26, passed away on Tuesday, May 29th at his home in Saint Paul, Minnesota, after two decades of chronic pain and several years battling mental health problems, which led to drug and alcohol addiction. Dylan was a sensitive and shy young man who endured much suffering in his lifetime, yet never wanted his family to worry about him.

Dylan was born December 15, 1991 in Edina, MN. As a young boy, he was very accomplished in athletics, excelling in football, basketball, and baseball. His medical conditions prevented him from being able to continue his passion and skills in sports, so he shifted to the Math Team. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Bloomington, MN in 2010. He was accepted into the Science and Engineering program at the University of Minnesota and later hoped to transition to Finance and Accounting. As Dylan grew older, he enjoyed fishing at the cabin, playing his guitar, winning ping-pong tournaments, and playing games like chess, cribbage, and “500.” He was a valued employee of Whole Foods, known to his managers and coworkers as being very helpful, hard working, and respectful to customers.

He was preceded in death by his father David Moen, grandma Angeline Edling and grandpa Clifford Moen, and he will be forever remembered and deeply missed by his mother Richelle Moen, sisters Emily (Ben) Cornish and Hannah Moen, grandma Barbara (Clifford) Moen, grandpa Harlow Erickson, uncles Chris (Snow) Moen, Aaron (Sally) Moen, Rick (Karen) Erickson, Will Edling and cousins Isabella Edling, Brian (Mellissa) Moen, Sarah Moen, Ben Moen, Lily Moen, Gwyneth Moen, Zach (Anne) Erickson, Lillie (Jeffrey) Pearo, and Joe (Anna) Erickson.

Funeral services will be held at Saint Michael’s Lutheran Church at 9201 Normandale Blvd in Bloomington, MN on Wednesday, June 6 at 3:00pm with visitation starting at 2:00. Light supper reception to follow.

In lieu of flowers, the Moen family has requested that gifts be given in Dylan’s honor to his family, or the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
