Dakota Dawson

February 12, 1999 ~ October 20, 2021 (age 22)


Dakota was born to Brian & Patsy Dawson on February 12, 1999, at UMC in Lubbock, TX. After his birth, he had medical conditions and was only given 2 months to live. Yet, he defied the odds and lived an amazing 22 years. As a child Dakota had an avid love of attending church camps with family and friends. During this time, he discovered his love for all things Colorado while attending a youth camp. He was planning on taking a family trip back to Colorado for his 23rd birthday. Dakota enjoyed family time when everyone was gathered around the T.V. and watching wrestling. He would always practice his WWE moves with his siblings. He also loved to play video games and was well known as the famous Single Hornet. He graduated from Frenship High School in 2017 and attended South Plains College in 2019. He aspired to be a paramedic and firefighter. Everyone that Dakota met left as a friend and to know him was to love him. 

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Marvin & Betty Dilli of Lubbock, TX, Theodore & Peggy Jones of Morton, TX, Terrance Dawson of Lubbock, TX & John Taylor of Lubbock, TX. He is survived by his parents Brian & Patsy Dawson of Lubbock, TX, siblings Kimberly Arellano & husband Stephen of Lubbock, TX, Amanda McDonough of Fayetteville, TN, Syble Dilli of Lubbock, TX & Brandon Dawson of Lubbock, TX, Grandparents Gail Taylor of Lubbock, TX & Carolyn Dawson of Lubbock, TX.
