Dalan Hardin Oulds-Wellman was a gift from God to his parents on December 14, 1998, in Columbus, Ohio. Dalan was the son of David R. Wellman and Billi J. Oulds.

Dalan was raised to be a God fearing, praying young man. Dalan believed, knew to put God first and then his family. He always put others' needs before his own, the one to look out for the underdog. You could best be sure if you didn’t have, as long as he did, you did. He would give you his very last, even the shoes off his feet. Dalan was truly a protector of his family and friends. Always taking the time to enjoy being with his younger brothers, being his brothers’ keeper. Others' well being was his top priority. He even had the foresight, the heart, thinking about others at such a young age, by being an organ donor. Dalan’s selfless act saved many lives in his passing.

Dalan was a 2017 graduate of Patriot Preparatory Academy. After graduation, Dalan was employed by the Laborers Local 423. Dalan was a hard-worker, saving his money looking to one day move to California to pursue his dreams in music. Besides music, he loved playing basketball, hanging out at home where many Madden competitions went on with his father and brothers, as well as one-on-one Uno matches with his Dad. Dalan enjoyed great home-cooking, but wouldn’t pass up Raising Cane’s for nothing. He was also a germaphobe, which he was teased regularly about by family and friends.

Dalan truly left a forever lasting impression on all lives he came in contact with, no matter how long the time spent. He never met a real stranger, taking time from whatever he was doing to just talk to someone. Anyone would testify to instantly feeling a connection to his pure heart.

Dalan was tragically taken from us on Sunday, July 26, 2020. Dalan is preceded in death by his grandmothers, Carolyn Vanhose and Eula Rodgers; uncle, Kyle Wellman; cousins, deForest Beale and Deontae Nelson-Briggs. Left to cherish his memory are his parents; sister, Daizunique Wellman; brothers Daizoir Wellman, David Isaiah Wellman, and Dazarion Wellman; grandparents, Green Milner, William & Shirley Oulds, Sr.; nephew, Zayah Earley; aunts, Crystal Wellman, Connie (Mark) Ray, Tammy Wellman, Laura Beale, Letissia (Eugene) Cobb, Yolanda (Jay) Briggs, Sr.; uncles, Glenn (Cherie) Wellman, Thomas (Stacey) Wellman, William (Shariese) Oulds, Jr.; cousins, Danielle Wellman, Brandy Wellman, Tamiko Wellman, Dayoma (Germain) Wellman, Tiffany Wellman, Joey Wellman, Damarco (Constance) Wellman, Marseant Wellman, Nikki Wellman, Olivia Wellman, Kyle Wellman, William C. Oulds, Gregory (Lisa) Beale, Lansen Waugh, Joshua Waugh, Brooklyn (Kevin) Bolden, Jr., Jada Briggs, Jay “Chyno” Briggs, Jr. and Ellis Briggs; life-long friends/brothers, Zaccai Starks, Neziah Starks, Demetrius Lightner, Trequaze Slaughter, Gabriel Velez and Garcia Velez; adopted grandmother Barbara Murphy; and a host of many more aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends.

I only have good memories of Dalan. Many of them come from when we went to LCA together when we were kids. He was sweet, kind and funny and although sadly I didn’t get a chance to remain close to him as we grew up, I know those qualities stuck with him. I can’t express how sorry I am that he was taken from this world already. I will miss him always and keep the fond memories extremely close in my heart!

Sending my love, prayers, and sincere condolences to Billie Jean and the Wellman family. Please know that you're in our thoughts and prayers especially today as you say good bye to your son. Earth has no sorrow that heaven can not heal. May the God of all comfort wrap His loving arms around you and keep you in His care. I love you much Sister Vicky and Brother Red Talley.

I didn’t know Dalan extremely well, but what I did know was that he was a talented young man full of motivation, laughter, and an appreciation for life and those he loved. It’s heartbreaking that this happened and that his aspirations were cut short. Sending my love and prayers to all the family members. Lord we need you.🙏🏽
