In Loving Memory of
Dillon James Milos (Vyni)
The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is try to say goodbye forever to this amazing man! Dillon James Milos (Vyni/Xero/Dill Picks) passed quickly on Tuesday July 11th. This has been the most difficult time of our lives, but thanks to his amazing partner, his friends, along with his incredible online family, we are doing our best to move forward!
Dillon was born in Brighton, Colorado on September 26, 1992. He attended school in Brighton, and graduated from there in 2011. He played the saxophone and was in the school band from Elementary School until his High School graduation. After graduation, he attended Community College of Denver for a time, with a strong emphasis in Music Theory. He also played and taught guitar lessons, where he came to fall in love with heavy metal! Eventually, as a hobby he bought a keyboard, wrote some original music and shared with family and friends.
He had worked at various retail jobs over the years, and was loved by coworkers and customers alike! Dillon had just started a new photography company, and found a new passion when he got a drone for that endeavor! His FAA Drone Operators License had just arrived, and he had a brilliant career in front of him, he was so excited. The pride he put into his work was obvious!
Dillon was an avid gamer, and a big majority of his life was spent playing, helping, and sharing with with his online friends. He enjoyed a wide variety of games, making a wide variety of friends along the way. These are friends who have loved and cherished their time with him, some knowing him for over 20 years. Thus we have decided to have an online Memorial Service/Celebration of Life in the coming weeks! We will let everyone who would like to attend know when and how.
Baking was one of the things he loved, He would put on a good audio book, and in several hours we would be enjoying a gourmet dessert, decadent brownies or some other amazing treat! He also loved to spend time in the kitchen with his “old man”, and helped create amazing dinners for friends, family, and themselves sometimes!
