Tyler attended Watkins Glen High School. He enjoyed hanging out with his friends and family, playing the guitar, loved the outdoors, olives, spoiling his sisters and spending time with his nieces and nephews. He made sure everyone around him was happy. Tyler had an unmistakable smile that could brighten anyone's day and a contagious laugh that was recognizable even in the most crowded room.
