Tyler was born in Phoenix on June 30, 1993 and grew up in Deer Valley, Arizona. Tyler graduated from North Canyon High School and later earned an associate degree from Paradise Valley Community College. He was involved in Boy Scouts where he worked hard and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Tyler had a positive impact on all who were fortunate to know him.
Tyler was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. He rose above his physical challenges and lived every day trying to improve himself and those around him. He challenged his introverted personality by creating exercises where he would approach strangers and strike up random conversations. Every encounter resulted in new friendships and more than a few humorous stories. Tyler had a quick wit and was well known for his unique and smart sense of humor. Tyler’s thirst for knowledge was unquenchable. His regular visits to the public library gave him ample reading. He had varied interests and loved learning about things like the human brain and how it works, psychology, art, and investing. He taught himself computer coding and web development. He loved to draw and was a very talented graffiti artist. He also enjoyed developing a strong and healthy body through meditation, yoga, regular trips to the gym, and healthy eating. Tyler was an active skateboarder, basketball enthusiast, and video gamer.
Tyler had a strong work ethic and lived a life of gratitude. He was kind and compassionate and tried to see the good in everyone he met. No one felt those qualities more than his family. Tyler never missed an opportunity to express his love and appreciation for his family. Tyler was a loving son, a caring brother, and a fun-loving uncle to his niece and nephews.
