Tyrone Gayle Memorial Fund

Tyrone could fly. But that was never enough for him — he wanted us all to fly with him. So he lifted up everyone he touched.

Unfortunately, Tyrone's body had given all it could give in his epic fight with cancer, and on Thursday, Oct. 25, he passed away peacefully, surrounded by friends and family. But his spirit soars on, flying above us, forever pulling us up.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity and warmth from so many that helped support Tyrone in his battle. So we're turning to #GayleNation once again:

Please chip in to help cover the costs of Tyrone's outstanding medical bills and memorial arrangements. Any remaining money will go to a charitable fund in his honor.
