Dylan Lichtenberger

August 21, 1986 - July 2, 2019


Dylan exuded passion and a larger than life attitude. He was a fierce and loyal friend, loving son, exuberant uncle Dyl, devoted and sensational husband, and an amazing daddy. He was the hardest worker, a wonderful mentor, did everything his way (and so did everyone else) and always spoke his truth. Dylan was always the first one to come in with a smile, crack a joke, raise a toast, or lend a hand. You could never threaten him with a good time because he did everything full tilt and to the bar. He left this earth on July 2 riding the wind with the adrenaline pumping, exactly the way he would have wanted. He will be dearly missed by his loving parents Joyce and Perry Lichtenberger, Oma Analies Lichtenberger, sister and brother-in-law Candice MacKenzie and Darryl Seminksy, nephew Marcus MacKenzie, and brother Adam Stoner with whom he shared a great love of music and rocked our world together. The whole music community is mourning the loss of a great drummer and guitarist. Daddy will live on in the lives of his wife Trisha Lichtenberger (nee Finlay), daughters Nova Melody and Aurora Analie, mother and father-in-law Dwight and Sheila Finlay, the entire Finlay and MacLean Families, his buddies around the world, and his dirt biking and work “families”. Nova wanted everyone to know that the best part of her daddy was everything.  Dylan, we hope that wherever you are, you have a front row seat to watch over your girls with an ice cold Peroni in your hand, a rocking set of drums and a full tank of gas in your bike and toy car. We love you so much it makes us sick.  At 6 pm on Friday July 12th at the Lions Centre in Cobourg (157 Elgin St E, Cobourg, ON) the kids will be playing, the bands will be rocking, the drinks will be pouring and we will be celebrating Dylan the way he would want. We welcome everyone to join the celebration (kids are encouraged to come spend some time with his girls).  In lieu of flowers, a daddy fund will be set up for Nova and Aurora to provide them with anything daddy would have wanted for them.   GoFundMe.  Condolences received at www.MacCoubrey.com.

Dylan was our neighbour in Airdrie and he was always willing to help us out with anything house related and have a good say. We greatly appreciated all his help and support the past three years. Our daughter was always so happy to see him in the driveway tinkering away. It’s hard to believe because he was so full of life and always so friendly and kind to us. We are thinking of Trish, the girls and all other family members during this time.Kirk, Kelsey and Sophie Keating

My deepest condolences. Dylan passed too young and too soon.I’ll be thinking of you tonight -cracking a cold Peroni and listening to very loud southern rock—and lifting a glass to Dylan. Peace and love to you all from the East Coast. ??

Bruce Rudichuk - July 10, 2019

I want to express my condolences to Trisha, the children and the entire Lichtenberger family.I first met Dylan approximately 5 years ago when he was considering coming to work for me. I must say I immediately noticed two things about him - first and foremost the light of his energy. He was for sure a "full tilt" personality and I could see that right away. Second, he had these really cool Coach loafers (funny that I remember that about my initial meeting). After joining the company we became closer - not only professionally, but personally as well. He not only shared, but was part of bringing our vision to life that shaped the company we were becoming. Most everyone in the company looked up to him as someone who could make decisions, get things done ... and win. I could easily see he was a leader. He was always pumped and ready to roll ... with a smile and a joke. We had a running dialogue about his favourite Robert Graham shirts.As I got to know him more personally I had the pleasure of meeting Trisha and Nova and getting to know about his many passions, most notably guitar and drums (which we talked about often) and his need to master horsepower. It seemed he had a different car every time we got together. He was always on the ready to lend a hand and give of himself any time of the day. It was easy to be drawn to Dylan's energy, his sense of humour, his love of his family and his confidence and his selfless nature. I have a deep affection for Dylan and I know his leaving is a loss for everyone that he touched.Helene and I will miss him dearly.Bruce & Helene Rudichuk

Caroline and Brian McNamara - July 10, 2019

We are so very sorry to hear of this sad news. Dylan was a kind and gentle person who always enjoyed life to the fullest. I always remember his pleasant and charming demeanour and how well he related to everyone. He had a love of life and it is sad that his was taken away so prematurely. Our thoughts are with Joyce and Perry and Trish and the children as well as with his other family members.

I never had the pleasure of being introduced to Dylan but I'm sure he's been present at many fundraisers for those in need thathis parents band and musician friends have hosted or been a part of over the last years along with the huge family of musiciansin this area. He sounds like the free spirit he was meant to be. My heart goes out to all of his family at this time. My thoughts andprayers are with you all at this terrible time. I look forward to celebrating his life with you in the future

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Dylan. Your hearts must be broken. He was such a beautiful little boy. You're right. He was a very loyal friend to my son when they were little boys. My sincere sympathy to you. This is heartbreaking.

Linda Morrow - July 7, 2019

Honey, I wish I could say something that would comfort your greatest loss. I was just thinking about a memory of you. It was one of Adam and Jennifer's football parties, and you brought the most delicious steak and horseradish snack. Not sure why I even mentioned this story, other than I miss those times very much, because it's when our loved ones were still with us I guess. Wish I was closer to give you a hug honey. Love you lots. Linda Morrow
