Dylan was born on July 25, 1992, in Natick, MA, to his parents Rafael and Bella Chaves. He was raised in Hudson, MA, and attended Hudson schools, graduating from Hudson High School in 2010. Upon graduation, Dylan went on to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Protection from Massachusetts Maritime Academy in 2016. Prior to his passing, Dylan was working as EHS Manager at Moderna in Norwood, MA, under employment by the Cardinal Group.

Dylan enjoyed axe throwing as a member of Into the Grain Axe Throwing in Sturbridge, MA, as well as scuba diving, ocean fishing, and ice hockey. He loved spending time with his family, but above all else, being a father to his three children was his greatest passion.

Dylan was a loving, thoughtful, caring, and  adventurous , and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.


I’d like to thank his employer Cardinal Group for all the love and support during this time. Thank you for making work not seem like work to him. He enjoyed calling Moderna his second home.
