Update: Dillon Wilks Bragg

Caldwell & Cowan Funeral Home

Dillon Wilks Bragg of Covington, passed away June 21, 2016, at the age of 22, a day before his 23rd birthday. Dillon lived life to the fullest and he had a warrior’s spirit. He was a friend to many and loved by everyone who met him. Dillon was a rebel to his last minute. Throughout his life, he played baseball, swam competitively, played the bass guitar, rode horses and bulls and wrestled his heart out. At age 13, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, preventing him from being able to join the military. He refused to let his disease define him, so being a true American Patriot, Dillon trained with a Constitutional Militia, the Georgia Security Force 111%, and by doing so, he was able to protect his country and those he loved. Dillon’s family has an emptiness that cannot be filled until they see him again in heaven.
