Tyler was a sweet person. He liked making YouTube videos with his father and watching his favorite YouTube personalities. He loved the art form of Anime. He loved children and was always full of joy.

He stayed in constant communication with all of his brothers. He was just a sweet person full of love. He also always wanted everybody to be treated fairly. Nobody got bullied when he was around!
To quote one of his friends “Tyler we’re going to miss you down here man!!!!!!! 7 years of knowing you and you would do anything for anyone. You were the light of the party! Since 6th grade till adults!!!! Fly high and light up the sky for us!”
It gives the family peace to know that Tyler was a Christian and had given his heart and soul to Jesus Christ. Tyler was baptized at Grace Church in Dumfries, VA. We are comforted by the fact that he is at peace with our Lord.
