Newton, NH — Dylan J. Demeritt, age 15, of Newton, passed away on Wednesday, July 17, 2013, at Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill, Mass.
He was born on December 27, 1997, in Exeter, N.H., and was the son of Mathew A. Demeritt and Kimberlie-Ann Flint. He was raised and educated in Newton, and had just completed his freshman year at Sanborn Regional High School.
Dylan loved the outdoors, whether he was going swimming, stacking wood, climbing trees, riding his four-wheeler, or just hanging around outside while his father was working in the yard. He was a happy-go-lucky boy who always had a smile on his face. He loved to torment his older brother, Bryan, one moment, and share some candy he had bought with him, the next. He loved playing with his family dogs, Scooby-Doo and Lacie, always giving them way too many treats, or table food. He was really excited about the thought of going camping with his family in their new camper. Dylan really treasured his friendship with his best friend, Erin.
He is survived by his parents, Mathew A. Demeritt and Kimberlie-Ann Flint; and his brother, Bryan M. Demeritt, all of Newton. Numerous other extended close family members also survive him.
