His favorite activities included swimming, music, being outside and dining out, especially at Olive Garden. He was fortunate to have toured much of the United States visiting his sister Lisa and brother-in-law, Navy Captain Daniel Packer at seaports on both the East and West coasts.
Tyler attended the day programs at the Eastpointe Facility in North Granville which he enjoyed.
There were so many special people in his life and his family would like to give individual thanks to his Pastor Laura Mitchell, to Dawn Clement, Dian Warrington, Chrissy Secor and Betty James for the wonderful care and fun times they shared with Tyler, along with Adele Potter and Bonnie Salley who provided his physical therapy with such enthusiasm. The care he received by the staff at Glens Falls Hospital was outstanding.
