Dimitri Alexander Babich, “Dima,” was born March 27, 1991 to Galina Egorova and Alexander Babich in Apsheronsk, Russia. He came to the United States at the age of 9 with his mother, Galina. For the rest of his short life he lived in San Antonio, Texas, and went to Sandra O’Conner High School. He was in his sophomore year when he was tragically taken from all who loved him.
Dima was a bright, cheerful kid who assimilated into American society seamlessly, picking up English quickly. He soon lost his accent and was as American as apple pie, baseball, and Chevrolet. He was a athlete who excelled at wide receiver as a football player because of his speed. He had lots of friends and was popular among his peers.
Musically, Dima played drums and guitar. He enjoyed listening to Snow Patrol, The Killers, Coheed and Cambria, Nickelback, Acceptance, Pillar, Switchfoot, Lifehouse, and Simple Plan, to name just a few. Music was absolutely a huge part of Dima’s life and there is no telling where this love of music would have taken him.
