Tyler enjoyed spending time with those he loved; he always lived life to the fullest, and he always had open ears and never had any judgement. Maybe a joke or two, but he looked at all the positives even in the worst of situations and could still make you laugh. He had the best hugs and one of the most unforgettable personalities. He enjoyed going to Willoughby Lake, listening to music, traveling, and going to concerts. He absolutely loved spending time with his nieces and teaching them whatever he could, especially football. Tyler loved sports; his favorites teams were New York Yankees and his beloved New England Patriots.
