He graduated from Arcadia High School, class of 2017, in Greece, NY.  He attended Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, NY, every summer from 2004-2019.  This was his favorite time of year and favorite place in the world to be and to be himself.  He was a valued employee at Best Buy stores in Greece, Saratoga Springs and Henrietta, NY.

Devin enjoyed many things.  He loved his animals.  He was a NY Yankees fan and a New England Patriots super fan.  He was an electronic guru, a computer builder extraordinaire and was at his happiest playing his guitar, listening to his favorite bands, Green Day and All Time Low, or especially when riding the open road on his motorcycle. He truly enjoyed helping others and making an impact on their lives whether at work or through his friendships.
