Dylan Chandler Thorstad passed away on February 2, 2022
Dylan was born on July 17, 1992. He grew up in Williston, ND, and worked various jobs in the oilfield. He was a hard worker. Dylan loved everything outdoors, from hiking and snowboarding to fishing and hunting. He loved to laugh and make people laugh. He would always make jokes, silly remarks and facial impressions, which would get those around him roaring, even in the most serious of moments.
Family was one of his greatest blessings and people were important to him. He blessed the lives of many with his big caring heart.
Sadly for us, he lost his long, hard battle with addiction and God answered his prayers.
Now he is no longer in pain, and is flying free.
Dylan will be dearly missed and forever loved.
Dylan is survived by his parents, Devin and Joelle Vannatta, (Windsor, CO); the love of his life Brooklyn Hurley, (Buford, ND); his two beautiful children, Emersyn Jean Thorstad and Benjamin Chandler Thorstad; siblings; Jeremy (Carianne)Thorstad, (Higganum, Connecticut), Tanner Thorstad, (Bismarck, ND), CaSarah Vannatta (Windsor, CO) Hannah Vannatta (Windsor, CO); grandparents, Elden and Carol Miller (Williston ND), Dwight and Sheila Vannatta (Bainville MT); nephews, Jaxx and Jylz Thorstad; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death most recently by his grandfather, Jerry E. Thorstad.
Please be kind to one another. Share your struggles, fears and joys, be present and patient in each other’s journeys. And when love seems to fail – because sometimes love is not enough to ward off health conditions – then love more, talk more, learn more, live more.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Dylan Thorstad Memorial at Bravera Bank (account ending 4980). All proceeds will go to his children.
