Devon had many interests growing up. As a child, he enjoyed drawing and sketching. He loved playing outside whether it was building forts in the trees near the family home, catching tadpoles in nearby ponds, or riding bikes around the neighbourhood. Some of his favourite childhood memories were made spending time at the Bjorklund farm and camping at Lucien Lake. As he got older, Devon enjoyed taking part in several 3 on 3 basketball tournaments. He made sure he had money saved to buy his first truck shortly after he turned 16. Devon enjoyed hunting and fishing and took many trips on his motorcycles over the years. Devon enjoyed jogging through the Lakewood Trails near his home. Other favourite activities included attending concerts with his brother and watching UFC with friends. Devon was an amazing uncle to his nieces and nephews. He never forgot a birthday and always spoiled them at Christmas.
