He attended various elementary schools, and Simmons Middle School and Aberdeen Central High School. Dawson grew up with two sisters, Alexis and Ella, and two brothers, Hudson and Quinn.
Dawson was the best big brother. He was very close to his siblings and very protective. His relationship with his siblings held a significant place in his heart. Dawson’s memory serves as a reminder of the power of love and compassion and the lasting impact an individual can have on the lives of so many. His legacy continues to inspire those fortunate enough to have known him. His spirit lives on in stories, cherished memories, and the hearts of friends and family.
Dawson lived in Mina, SD, where he worked at the Ipswich Lumberyard and prior worked at the Aberdeen Chrysler Center. Dawson had a love for the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. He enjoyed his time deer hunting with his Dad and Grandpa Richard. He also had a love for his many friends, especially his buddies Jayce, Dillon, and Taylor; they were brothers to him. He also enjoyed spending time with his stepbrother Tony hanging out and playing video games. Dawson also had a great relationship with his stepsister Kassie. He had a special bond with his mother and father. He was a big “momma’s boy.” Dawson was also blessed to have a good relationship with his stepmom, Kristie, and his mother’s boyfriend, Tre. He had a deep love for his girlfriend, Leyanis.
In his spare time, he enjoyed riding his motorcycle, cooking, making music, and working out and he loved to sleep. Dawson also enjoyed helping and spending time with his Grandma Cheryl and Grandpa Greg. He was so proud of his new baby puppy, Autumn, and loved playing with her and spending time with her. He radiated love and kindness, making a profound impact on everyone who had the privilege of knowing him.
