We were blessed to have known Tyler. He came to visit us several times with Chloe and was so cordial. His smile was contagious and he had such a sweet and loving personality. We are heartbroken. We are praying for God's blessings to be with each family member, friend, and loved one during this time of grief and sorrow. Tyler, you will be greatly missed.

With deepest sympathies,
Mike and Wendy Blessing

I am so sorry to hear about Tyler. He was in my 2nd grade class. He and his siblings were new to Wilson that year. Tyler fit right in from day one. I don’t think he was ever called the “new kid”. He was a joy to have in class and was a friend to everyone. He had a large personality and always made me smile. Praying for all who loved him! 🙏🏻

I’ve known the Grant family since Nick and I were in 5th grade at Wilson Elementary School. There is never a dull moment with any of them. The ones I’ll cherish the most are, watching movies after wrestling practice (Fast and Furious 6) in Kiesha’s living room & most of all, watching Tyler wrestle. Like any of the Grant’s, he put his heart and soul into wrestling, and it showed. We love you TyTy. ❤️

If there was one person on this earth that knew how to make me smile in anyway shape or form it would be Tyty. There was never a day that would go by that he wouldn’t make me laugh or smile. Tyty was always the life of the party and there for absolutely any person no matter the circumstances. Tyty had the best heart and would take the shirt off his back for anyone and I mean ANYONE. Tyty you will be missed more than ever by so many. I hope you’re enjoying heaven and getting to see your bestfriend again. rest easy, I can’t wait till the day I get to see you again ❤️

I’m just terribly heartbroken for this family. I’ll never forget driving Keisha to the Dr and her finding out she was expecting Tyler. Our conversation driving home from that appt was hilarious! (Tyler was a surprise).
I’ll never forget being at a cheerleading competition in Gatlinburg and as Kalianna and Tristian were practicing, I took Tyler and my daughter to a go-kart place and Tyler and Emilee rode the sling-shot. He was so sweet calming Emilee down however he said every cuss word in the book as it took off!! I will never forget that! The Grant kids have been so special to me and my family. I love you guys and I’m so sorry for your loss

“Fly Ty”
By Julio Copeland & Andrew Ryan

From the time that we first smiled
From the time that we last laughed
Knowing we bonded through it all,
That we were on the same Path

To be separated by a wound so deep.
The young bird in a family of Regal Eagles.
The sky was your limit. Now you’re there.
Your faith took a leap.

You gain your eternal wings brother.
Fly eternally high Ty Ty.
You added some brightness when we look
Up
To all of our skies
