Next Saturday (November 24th) at Alki UCC, family and friends will gather to celebrate the life of Tyler Michael Vance, who died recently at just 30 years old. Here’s the remembrance shared by his family:
Our beautiful Son, Grandson, Brother, Daddy, Boyfriend, Nephew, Cousin, and Friend, Tyler Michael Vance, born March 27th, 1982, passed away on November 3rd, 2012, in his sleep.
Voted as most “Undeniably Unique” in his class of 2000 West Seattle High School Yearbook, Tyler lived his life as exactly that. Afraid of seemingly nothing, Tyler stood out with a style that could put a smile on your face, a zest for thrill seeking, an indisputable passion for his interests, and a love inside of him that was non discriminatory, earning him at times even the most unlikely of friends.
Tyler also attended Lafayette Elementary School, Madison Middle School and spent some time pursuing an Associate’s Degree at South Seattle Community College. Most recently he worked for the City of Seattle roads crew and has been father to his two beautiful girls whom he loved deeply.
We find comfort in knowing that Tyler rests at peace now, a peace that was not always easy for him to achieve in life.
He is loved dearly.
Tyler leaves behind his parents, Diann & John Rundberg, Shawn & Mary Packard; Grandparents, Dick & Georgia Hutchison, and Nancy Packard; Brothers Ryan, Micah and sister Sarah; His two daughters, the joys of his life Zoey (8), mother Lauren Adams, and Taya (3), with his girlfriend Chevon Moody.
Please come join us all in celebrating Tyler’s life with a service on Saturday, November 24th, from 2-6 pm, Alki Congregational Church UCC, 6115 SW Hinds.
In lieu of flowers, an account has been opened in each of his daughters’ names at Bank of America. You may call (206) 938-1015 for information on donations in their support.
