It’s every parent’s nightmare. On Saturday night August 19, 2017, Tyler, his mom April and friends were relaxing at home enjoying one another’s company on what seemed to be a quiet evening. Around 9PM, Tyler told his mom April that he was going to the store and would be right back. Around 930, everyone heard sirens that seemed to be close by. As they went to the end of their street they found a horrific site…Tyler had been involved in a single car crash and did not survive. He was killed upon impact. As you can well imagine, his mother, family and friends were devastated to come upon this tragedy. Everyone remains in shock and can’t seem to understand WHY? Tyler like many other young folks was looking forward to his future. Like many young folks his age he has experienced his life’s fair share of ups and downs, but who hasn’t? Tyler previously attended West Brunswick High School and was an old soul who absolutely loved ALL music, and OLD music too. Tyler was a self-taught musician and one of his prized accomplishment was being able to play and sing the song “Hurt” by Johnny Cash. Tyler loved everyone and proud to call everyone his brothers and sisters…not just his “friends”. Tyler loved life and loved to make everyone laugh. Lately, Tyler had been working very hard to bring himself ready to join the Army, which he was looking forward too. Tyler like his mother April had an unselfish desire to help others. Tyler wanted to eventually follow in his mother’s footsteps and become an EMT. Tyler’s mother April was formerly a Paramedic and served Brunswick County citizens for many years. This family is desperate need of financial help from our community. His funeral expenses exceed $8,000 and is on hold until his family and friends can get the money to finalize arrangements. We ask for anyone that can to please donate to this cause. April has helped many others in their time of need and now she needs our help. Please consider helping.
