In the wake of this unfathomable tragedy, Dylan Moran’s family is struggling to come to grips with the fact that he is never coming home…For those of you who do not know, Dylan Moran’s life was taken on November 10th, 2017. Dylan was the victim of a fatal hit-and-run accident in Orange, California (the driver has still not been found.) While traveling for business, Dylan was struck by a car at a gas station. He had called his mother, Elizabeth, to let her know that he had arrived safely just the night prior. 

Dylan Moran, age 25, was a dedicated and grateful father, a loving son, role model of a brother, loyal friend to all, United States Marine veteran, and a faithful man of God. On 18 July, 2010, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he served as a Rotory-Wing Flightline Mechanic on Huey and Cobra Helicopters. Dylan’s service to his country was a source of pride for the whole family. After the Corps, he worked as an independent consultant for hospitals and clinics, often traveling state to state. However, Dylan's proudest moment came on 16 March 2016 when his daughter Harper was born. Dylan described her birth as “opening doors to his heart he never knew existed.” 
 I am starting this page to reach out for help for the Moran family. As the police sort out the details of the case, this family is desperate to bring Dylan home for his wake and funeral. 

With your help, we will bring Dylan home from California to New Jersey and give his family and friends the opportunity to celebrate his life and say their final goodbyes.  Any donation is appreciated. Any monies left over will be used for the care and support of Harper. Dylan’s Mother, Elizabeth Maciag DeGeeter, will be in charge of funds.

I apologize for not posting another update sooner. Dylan’s family is just in disbelief of the outpouring support that they are receiving from you all! Whether it’s sharing the campaign, commenting, or donating, you have each helped tremendously! Dylan arrived safely back home in New Jersey yesterday, his wake is scheduled for Sunday, and his funeral will be on Monday. None of this would have been possible without the growing support that has been received! Further more, and more importantly to Dylan looking down from the Heavens, his daughter Harper will have a generous trust fund set up for her with every cent left over. Dylan’s Mother, Elizabeth, swears she will never be able to thank me enough; Truly I just started a page where you all could show the family how much Dylan was Loved! Those thank you’s are meant for each and every one of you! So I pass it along... THANK YOU! THANK YOU SOO VERY MUCH from the bottom of our hearts!

In the short span of 24 hours since this campaign was activated, YOU (family, friends, colleagues, and even total strangers) have not only managed to donate over half of the campaigns' goal of $15K, but have surrounded Dylan's family with support, hope, and compassion. Although this traumatic experience is difficult physically, mentally, and emotionally, you are providing secure footing for the families path to closure. Dylan, this is hard evidence that you have touched and opened so many hearts, in the same way that Harper touched yours. We Love You; We Miss You; and We Wish the Most Peaceful of Rests.
