This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Tyler Roberts who was born in United States on January 30, 1987 and passed away on July 16, 2006 at the age of 19. We will remember him forever.
Tyler graduated South Laurel High school in 2005 and the American Institute of Baking as a bakery maintenance engineer on November 4, 2005.
Tyler made friends easily and kept his best friends; Tyler B, Brett, Justin, Jarrett and Eric plus so many more than i can possibly name throughout his life. Tyler had so many friends that i can't possibly name all of them but he was loved by so many people.
Tyler loved to hunt and go four-wheeling. He shot a traditional bow and placed first in many competitions. He killed numerous animals with a bow and in the woods hunting was where he felt at home. He loved trucks and customizing them with lift kits, big tires, awesome stereo systems and loud exhaust pipes!
Tyler always was all about thrill seeking and when a number of his friends purchased motorcycles also known as "crotch rockets" he had to have one as well. Tyler lost control of his bike less than 2 miles from his house and died on a hot July Sunday that will never be forgotten.
Tyler left behind two brothers and a sister. Josh is only 13 months younger than Tyler, Amber is 17 and Jeremy is 11. It was if Josh lost the other half of himself and Amber felt her protector of all things bad was taken from her. Jeremy grieves but it's harder to put in words since he is so much younger but I know he thinks about him and misses him everyday because he tells me so.
From the time Tyler was born there was always a light in his big black eyes that shown from within. He was special and not just because he is my son. His father lost a son and his best friend and I lost my first born child.
I treasure every memory I have of the 19 years I got to spend with him and try to never forget that I will see him again someday.
