Tristan C. G. Dawson, age 24, of Dubuque, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 4, 2021.  To celebrate Tristan’s life, family and friends may visit from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street.  Burial will be at a later date following cremation in Linwood Cemetery.

Tristan was born on August 22, 1996, in Dubuque, Iowa, son of Rebecca Dawson and Raven Hohmann.

Tristan was a graduate of Dubuque Senior High School, Class of 2014.  He was employed with Panera Bread from 2017-2020, and was excited to be starting a new job with Best Buy.  In his free time Tristan was a hard core gamer.  His friends meant the world to him and whenever they got together there was usually some gaming involved.  Tristan enjoyed watching Anime and LARPing (Live Action Roll Play).  He also liked spending time at home with his beloved dog, Josie, and cat, Kira, relaxing and watching YouTube.  Tristan also liked spending time outside enjoying the beauty of nature and having bonfires with family and friends.  We are truly heartbroken at losing Tristan, and he will be missed more than words can express.
