A 21-year-old man originally from Barrhaven was killed in a two-vehicle collision on Snake Island Road between Nixon and Doyle Roads in Osgoode Mon. Oct. 25.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which happened at 7:20 a.m. The vehicle he was driving collided with a pick-up truck carrying a trailer. The driver and passenger in the truck sustained minor injuries.
Cindy Little, who lives in Kemptville now but was a longtime Barrhaven resident who is well-known in the community, announced in a Facebook post Wednesday (Oct. 27) that the victim in the crash was her son.
“Our 21 yr old son, Dylan James Darren Little, passed away on Monday, Oct 25th,” the post said. “It pains us to share this on FB, but the reality is there are too many people to call.”
According to Little, her son was on his way to his first day of work at a new job. She wrote that he died instantly when his car collided with a pickup truck pulling a trailer.
“As any parent can imagine, it is your worst nightmare to lose a child,” Little wrote. “I was awake when he left for work that day and I said as he left, ‘have a good day’. Little did I know it would be his last day and my last words to him. I still can’t believe it.”
Dylan grew up in Barrhaven and was a part time employee at Ross’ Your Independent Grocer while in high school. He is survived by his sister, Amy, and his parents, Cindy and Darren.
“Dylan was a beautiful, fit, funny and a carefree son,” his mother wrote. “He was hardworking and did well in school. He took welding in college and had an application in to do a welding trade in the Canadian Armed Forces. That trade was full so he did 2 jobs while going to school.
“His co-workers at Equinelle Golf Club and everyone he worked with raved about his strong work ethic and how much they liked Dylan. He had a great reputation amongst the staff and golfing community at our new home in Kemptville.”
Little’s Facebook post had close to 1,000 comments with one day. She expressed her thanks to family and close friends for their support during this difficult time.
The Barrhaven Independent would like to extend the most heartfelt condolences to the Little family during this difficult time.
