My heart truly breaks for your family and all your loved ones you were truly one of a kind. I had the privilege of first working with you at cracker barrel and then we became friends .I have so many memories I couldn't even begin to write them all down, but I must say my most favorite memory is how you would always scare me at work you would wait till my back was turned and then you would just stand behind me so when I turned around I would be faced with your tree like statue right in my face and would scream so loud and you would get the biggest kick. I tried so hard to get you back was never able to you were not scared easily but I gave it my best shot. This world and cracker barrel will never be the same without you. I hope you're flying high with the angels and looking down on us to never be forgotten.

Tyler was one of the first employees I met at Cracker Barrel. He always told me jokes and reminded me that each day was a new day. He was one of my closest friends while working at Cracker Barrel. When I told him I was heading off to Rome, he was so happy for me that I was able to be living my dream. He always encouraged me and would ask me how much closer I was to making my goal for my flight to Rome. The world has truly lost a caring, loving human being. Rest In Peace Tyler and watch all the football games you want up in Heaven.
