Dillon James Goodsky Sr., age 35 of Minneapolis, Minnesota journeyed to the Spirit World on Sunday, September 6, 2020 in Minneapolis.  He was born on December 2, 1984 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Reno Sutton, Lana Goodsky and his Pa, Vince Ellis.

Dillon loved his family more than anything. He was always there for anyone that needed him. If he was invited to something he would always show up or if you called him, he’d always answer. He looked out for those he loved and he took pride in being that man. He loved cracking jokes and having a good time. He was the best big brother any of his siblings could’ve ever asked for. They all looked up to him as a mentor. He loved all of his children, nieces, and nephews. He joked a lot with everyone but he always made sure they knew how much he loved them. Dillon enjoyed life! He loved to fish and hunt. If you knew Dillon you knew how much he loved tattoos.

His protective nature brought him to step up and become a Little Earth Protector. He was so proud of the warrior he was, we all were! The people he worked with protecting the community became his extended family. Rover 1 will be retired in his honor.
