Tyler John Morgan, 25, of Scranton, Pa., passed away unexpectedly at his home Wednesday, May 23.

Tyler graduated from Dunmore High School class of 2012 and studied psychology at Lackawanna College.

An avid singer and songwriter, he played with numerous bands at many venues across NEPA. He was a poet, writer, musician and actor, and he had a creative mind that blew people away. He was excelling in Brazilian jujitsu at Gracie NEPA, where he also found another group of people that quickly became a family. He was employed by St. Joseph Center, where he took care of residents with special needs.

He would give the shirt off his back; he would give his last dollar; he would give everything he had to someone who was struggling. He had the kind of heart that we rarely see in people these days. If you were down, he could lift your spirit with a simple joke; he could tell a story that would bring you to tears, and, if you were in a bad mood, he could turn it around with just a flash of his smile. Tyler was the ultimate people person who could see the good in everyone.

Surviving are his father, Scot Morgan, of Scranton; his mother, Tina Morgan, of Scott Twp.; and his sister, Rachel Morgan, of Scranton, and her daughter, Aveline. Also surviving are grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins.

He was also preceded in death by his grandfather, Edwin Morgan Sr.

Tyler did not want a funeral; he wanted people to remember his joyful life. Instead of a viewing and funeral, there will be a public memorial in the upcoming weeks. Please keep an eye out on his Facebook page, "Rasco Maldukiz," for information once the date, time and location are set.

Thank you all for being a part of Tyler's life, and please keep our family in your prayers during this difficult time.
