Dylan D. Lauay

April 22, 1994

July 26, 2023

With deep sorrow, Dylan’s family sadly announces his passing at Toronto General Hospital on Wednesday, July 26, 2023, at the age of 29. Left to mourn his departure is his beloved wife Carla Pelaccia. Dylan is survived by his loving parents, Don Lauay and Cheryl Laurin (John), his stepmother Sheila Naveau (Steph), and stepsister Ashley Beckstead (Jamie). He was a dear nephew to Wendy Lauay, Tina Lively (Dax), Greg Campbell, and Shaun Hurley, and cherished grandson of Rose Anna Campbell (late Bill Hurley), Greg Tiller, and Mary Constantine. Also grieving his loss are Carla’s family, including his in-laws Tony and Laurie Pelaccia, and Aunt Kathy Pelaccia. Dylan will be deeply missed by his brothers-in-law, Anthony Pelaccia (Brooke) and Christopher Pelaccia (Emilie). He was predeceased by his brother Todd Naveau, cousin Rhonda Lively, grandfather Donald Lauay Sr. (Marlene), grandpa Danny Rochon (Maybel), and in-law grandparents Walter and Edda Cecchini. Despite an eight-year battle with cancer, Dylan’s unwavering positivity and radiant smile were contagious, touching the lives of those around him. His strength and resilience were an inspiration to all who knew him. Don Lauay not only served as Dylan’s father but also his closest friend. Dylan and Carla’s love story began in high school, and since then, they have been inseparable, walking hand in hand through their 11-year journey. Their love for each other knew no bounds and was truly selfless and unconditional. As long as they were together, they found happiness in any circumstance. Dylan dedicated 10 years of work to Eacom/Interfor, but his true passion lay in the great outdoors. An avid outdoorsman, he loved nothing more than being at the camp, enjoying hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling adventures with his family. Being at home with Carla and their pets Jet, Flint, and Maya brought immense joy to Dylan’s heart. Throughout his childhood and teenage years, he found fulfillment playing hockey and embracing his creative side through arts and crafts. The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to the doctors and staff at Toronto General, Princess Margaret, Mount Sinai, and Health Sciences North for their exceptional care during Dylan’s battle. They are also immensely grateful for the generous support provided by the Wabun Tribal Council. A memorial mass will be held on Wednesday, August 9, 2023, at 10:30 am at Sacred Heart Church. In memory of Dylan, the family kindly requests remembrance donations to the Sick Kids Hospital Foundation. Friends and family are invited to visit the MIRON-WILSON FUNERAL HOME, CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE, located at 150 Balsam St. S., Timmins, ON, on Tuesday, August 8, 2023, from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm.
