Tyson loved being a Teacher and had a father's heart for all his students. His students responded to his deep love and respect for them. Tyson had great respect for his co-workers at Dinuba HS but all members of the faculty were potential victims of his jokes. Tyson loved humor and knew that a merry heart does good like a medicine. Tyson was a man's man who enjoyed all outdoor activities such as skiing, snowboarding, hiking, hunting, fishing, kayaking, and paintball. Tyson was a good mechanic and enjoyed dismantling, building or repairing things. Tyson knew no strangers and all the children and young people loved him because he always made time for them. Tyson loved his Lord Jesus Christ and conducted his life and activities in a manner that reflected that love. Tyson was a hardworking principled young man who will be missed by all of us who knew him and was touched by his Christian example and life. Tyson lived a full rewarding life in the 28 years the Lord allowed us to have him. What a joy and privilege it was to have Tyson as part of our lives. We look forward to seeing him in heaven.
