Unique funeral procession honors Army Veteran

Posted: Updated:

ELLSWORTH TWP., Ohio- A family legacy is passed down in Ellsworth Township, as the family copes with the death of their son.

Dylan Crump, 21, was laid to rest Thursday morning, after his vehicle went off a roadway in Miltion Township over the weekend.

Dylan Crump, who had a love for antique cars, was escorted to the Ellsworth Cemetery in a 1925 Model T.

"He loved that Model T, so his one last ride was a hell of a ride," said Dylan Crump's mother Mary Crump.

The Model T has become a heirloom in the family, restored by three generations.

"This was Grandpa Crumps Model T, which my husband and him had put together and worked on," Mary Crump said.

A year and a half ago Dylan's grandfather, Oliver Crump, died and was also honored with a funeral procession in the Model T.

"I'm sure he's watching and the legacy keeps on, I hope," said Dylan Crump's father John Crump. "We enjoy driving them [Model T's]. We don't haul them around in trailers, we use them, that's what they're made for."

"Dylan used this in parades to ride little kids around, he just enjoyed the Model T," said Mary Crump.

A final tribute, as a family tradition continues.
