Tyler Warren, age 32, entered this world a tiny red headed bundle of joy. Early on we knew he was special, different from other children, but so smart and unique.
He challenged us as we tried to enter his world of numbers, time, music and letters. Wheel of Fortune taught him to spell before he could talk, Peter Jennings on the evening news was his favorite TV personality and his sister, Ciara became his best friend. His Mamaw referred to him as her “superboy” and she said in her later years that he kept her going. He loved going to school and learning new things, math was his favorite, solving problems in his head, but struggled to get anything on paper. Tyler was our perpetual calendar, able to recall everyone's birthday (yes the day, not just the date) with perfect accuracy.
His world was very factual, jokes made no sense to him, everything had a purpose. He grew up going to church, even though the crowds were not comfortable for him, he enjoyed the music most. He was asked a few years ago about Jesus and salvation, not knowing if he would understand. His response was priceless-”Of course I know who Jesus is, he is in my heart and in heaven, I asked him to come into my heart in Larry and Gerald’s Sunday School class and he did” Just the facts. His love of games- board games, card games and game shows gave him so much joy. He was happy to have obtained 100 CD’s in his collection of various artists from across the decades. He kept us all on schedule-his schedule. He had a 3:00 movie every day from his VHS collection, DVD’s were only placed on the shelf but never watched. His schedule became our family schedule, movie at 3 supper at 5 (The Root Beer Stand from March to October-every day!), News at 6, Wheel of Fortune at 7, Jeopardy at 7:30. Home Alone at 8:00 nearly every night and bed at 10:27. During his movies he would play a board game- all positions, he needed no one to play with him and would not let anyone if they tried. He renamed everyone in the family after characters from the show Drake and Josh. He called himself Drake, his brother Josh became Nickles (that caused some serious discussions!) Ciara became Meagan and his mom became Audre`. We accepted our new names and referred to each other with the new names. To hear him say “Oh Meagan” or “Oh Nickles” or “Oh Audre`” we knew we were special to our “Drake” Our sweet lovable, stubborn Drake.
November 23rd he was called home; so sudden and far too soon. Our hearts are broken at the fact we’ll not get to look into those big blue eyes, or we will not get to hear him say “what a Bargain” when he was shopping. Even though we’re sad and lost for words we know that he is healed and whole, singing, running and no longer trapped in a body that was failing him here on earth.
Tyler was the sweetest most pure person anyone could have ever known. Everyone who knew him learned from him. It was an honor knowing Tyler and being a part of his wonderful journey. This world isn't as sweet now, and our family will never be the same. He made us all look at the world differently. Tyer definitely left his mark on so many people. If only we were all like him, this world would be a much better place. Even though a huge part of our family is gone, and we have yet to view our life without being smothered by the inescapable absence of you, we know that death can not touch is the unforgettable memories of you, and we will always hold them close. Our Tyler was one person our family needed, but he was too beautiful to be here any longer.
Tyler has joined his maternal grandparents, William and Cleda Taylor, a dear great uncle Charles Ranzy Davis. He is survived by his mother Durenda Taylor, sister Ciara Warren, brother Josh Eaton and brother Jimmy Carson and wife Zaria. He is also survived by nephews Conner Phelps, Lincoln Eaton, nieces Areyonna Eaton, Jaylee Carson and Everlee Carson who all enjoyed sharing french fries and watching TV with Tyler. His aunt Tamara Neimeier (Cliff), cousins Allison and Katherine Neimeier, his uncle John Taylor and cousins Aaron Taylor and Bryan Taylor as well as many other extended family members and dear friends.
A celebration of his life will be held from 10am until 12noon on December 28, 2019 at Immanuel Baptist Church in Corbin. Everyone is welcome to come and share memories of Tyler
