Dylan Mitchell Hare
November 19, 1997 – October 12, 2017
Dylan passed away tragically on October 12, 2017 at the age of 19. He was born in Kelowna on November 19, 1997 to Donovan and Ruth Hare (nee Kranabetter).
Growing up in Kelowna, Dylan enjoyed many sports and activities ranging from soccer, football, skiing, wakesurfing, video games, and camping.
He had fond memories of attending Glenmore Elementary, KLO Middle and KSS schools in the French immersion program. Basketball was by far Dylan’s greatest passion and he played on his school and various club teams.
In Grade 10, Dylan started to program computers and he never looked back. He spent the last two years as a software engineer working for Acro Media in Kelowna. During this time he studied computer science at UBC Vancouver.
Dylan’s charm was felt by many. He enjoyed making friends and spending his free time with people. Dylan had an adventurous spirit and an inquisitive, sharp mind. As an athlete, he was a strong competitor and generous teammate.
Dylan will be greatly missed by his older brother Nathan of Vancouver, his younger sister Rachel of Kelowna, his parents, his grandfathers, Tom Kranabetter of Lake Country and Carl Hare of Kelowna, and his many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 21st at 1:00 pm at Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna.
