Dravin was born on June 15, 2008, in Menomonie, Wis., to parents Lucas Larson and Tashiana Olson.
Dravin was currently a fifth grade student at Malone Intermediate School, in Prescott. Dravin loved his school, his teachers, and especially his friends. Whether with his school friends or his BACA friends, Dravin thrived on the support of good friends, and being that kind of friend to others. Dravin was always on the go, and was involved and thoughtful of those with special needs at his school. Dravin’s friendliness knew no bounds. His smile and kind words were intent on making strangers become friends. It’s how he connected with people! Dravin liked to wear his signature white hat, was a fan of the Wisconsin Badgers, and enjoyed music, wrestling, Pokémon cards, and Legos. Dravin’s final act of kindness in this life was the gracious gift of organ donation. Dravin’s gift will forever change the lives of four strangers, and show the world his special brand of love. He will be missed by many.
