I was a fraternity brother of Ty at UT Sig Ep as well. Ty was a a fun, happy go lucky fellow fraternity brother and Longhorn. Had a very positive influence on me dealing with a difficult time through freshman year and I will never forget you.

Rest in peace, Brother

Ty was a St. Monica classmate and fellow Texas Longhorn. God rest his soul and may our Lord wrap his arms around him in His eternal embrace.

I will always remember Ty as a handsome, funny, super-smart and athletically gifted man who could really light up a room. He was a great friend and one of my favorite swimming training partners. Ty was one of the original Ironman triathletes in the Dallas area, dating back to the late 1980s. His laugh, and his passion for people, hockey and the Texas Longhorns will be forever etched in my memory. He was loved dearly by Darlene, his entire family, Kristina and many, many others.
R. I. P. Tyrone!!

Darlene, Lisa, Larry and Kristina -- you have my deepest sympathy. Ty is irreplaceable. I share your sadness for his loss.

Rich Guittar introduced me to Ty in 5th grade at a hockey game, so early in the morning it was still night. Rich had stick skills; Ty hit everything in sight. Ty was a tsunami, a firestorm. He played bass guitar and the bass setting on his stereo was set on 11. Ty went up to 11. He pushed his body beyond its limit because as strong as he was physically, his spirit and soul were supernatural. Ty’s body couldn’t contain his life energy. Nothing could. If CrossFit existed in 1984, nobody here would be surprised if we were talking about Ty as a 6-time world champion. Ty could dance and wasn’t afraid to dance.

I am proud to have known Ty, and my memories of him are an inspiration for life. He was a brother. Godspeed, Ty Mahan.

I met Ty about 25 years ago when I was a manager at Golds Gym . He was one of the biggest guys with a great California tan . Although he looked intimidating. he was a gentle Bear. Always had a big smile and was kind hearted. We became good friends and had some great times. Although you are gone, your memories will remain forever ! Rest in Peace my friend! My deepest condolences to the Mahan family!

What a bright shining light he was with such a love for life and a huge caring heart. Ty was part of the Training Staff @ North Dallas Athletic Club back in the late 80’s to early 90’s. I was the Sports Director at the time. His enthusiasm was contagious and his drive and love to compete in Triathlons and help others improve was nothing less than priceless. As I reflect back, it is so sad that we loose such fine individuals in the prime of their lives.

Ty “lived life”! RIP, my young friend. 🙏 ❤️

To Kristie,

Janet and I are thinking of you. You have so many great memories and moments with Ty. Hold those close forever.

There are certain people you meet in life that make you a better person; Ty was one of those people. What impressed me about Ty was his confidence and his genuine warmth dealing with people.

I have many fond memories of Ty. In addition to having a zest for life, we shared the same passion for hockey (teammates) and training (Ironman).

Ty will be missed. Rest in Peace.

I am so sad to hear of Ty's passing. I was a fellow brother at UT Sig Ep. Ty was older than me, but he took me under his wing and was a kind and caring brother. I recall getting to go with him to several Jerry Jeff concerts and of course getting the "Mahan" treatment. He always included me.
I can picture him coming through the house at meal time, always in his workout gear, but ALWAYS with a smile!!! I am thankful that I had the pleasure of being a small part of his life, he made a difference.

Gods peace to all of you.
