Dillon Andrew Wilson was born August 29, 1993 in Detroit Lakes, MN to Randall and Denise (Chilton) Wilson. At a young age he was given the nickname “dill pickle” by his father. He grew up in Frazee, graduating from Frazee High School with the class of 2012. After high school he moved and worked in Beach, ND before moving to Detroit Lakes. Currently he was employed by Opp Construction based out of Grand Forks. Dillon had a heart of gold. He never hesitated when someone needed his help and would give the shirt off his back in doing so. He had a wonderful sense of humor, forgave easy and never held a grudge. His family and friends meant the world to him. He enjoyed 4-wheeling, playing in the mud, snowmobiling, fishing, hunting, loved music and helping out on the farm. Most importantly, Dillon loved spending time with his family and friends. He was a diehard Ford and Polaris man through and through and was proud of his F-250 Diesel.
