Dylan Lee Denton was born on August 26th, 1995 in La Grande, Oregon to Robert and Teresa Denton. Dylan passed away suddenly in a tragic accident on October 19th, 2019. Dylan was raised in Wallowa County where he attended school and graduated from Enterprise High School in May of 2014. Dylan loved to spend his free time working and helping out on the Wentz Ranch. Dylan was active in 4-H, FFA, Cub Scouts, and playing football. Once Dylan graduated from high school he worked for Foss Maritime, in Seattle, for a short period of time before returning to Ione to work at Krebbs Sheep Company. He worked for Krebbs Sheep Company for a short time and eventually started working at Farm Supply Distributors in Enterprise, Oregon where he was a diesel mechanic and jack of all trades. It is at Farm Supply Distributors that he met the love of his life, Tiffany Smith.
Dylan enjoyed ranching and riding his horse, Ol’Bay and working his cows that he named Dilbertha and Dibblet. Dylan was a dedicated family man who put others before himself. Dylan worked hard and did whatever it took to provide for himself, Tiffany, and James. Dylan enjoyed the Friday night family dinners usually at Embers Brew House & Pub unwinding and spending time with family and sharing a few good laughs.
Dylan is survived by his mother Teresa (Kressly) & Kelly Fisher, and father Robert & Heidi Denton. Maternal grandmother Georgia Kressly and paternal grandparents Bob Denton and Donna & Derv Fortenberry. Dylan is survived by his seven siblings, Dustin (Jessica) Denton, Tara (Chris) Crader, Jenna Denton, Seth (Teresa) Fisher, Zack (Cassi) Fisher, Mandie (Todd) Wagner, and Matt (Jessee) Fisher. Dylan is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. In lieu of flowers, the Denton and Fisher families ask for donations to go to Triston Denning to help with medical bills and the recovery he will need. An account has been set up through Community Bank. Just let them know it is for Triston. This is what Dylan would have wanted, being the selfless man he was.
