Young, Tyre Galloway Tolbert, was granted his angel wings on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that he touched in small ways throughout his short, yet memorable life.

Funeral service will be held Saturday, November 11 at 2 p.m. at Ray Williams Memorial Chapel, 301 N. Howard Ave., with Bro. Charles Barnhill, officiating.  Interment will follow in Rest Haven Memorial Park Cemetery. 

Even though, Tyre’s life would seem short to many, those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His gentle smile could melt the hearts of those around him and though he never spoke a word, his voice and thoughts could always be heard.

Although, Tyre’s illness made him appear frail he possessed strength, perseverance and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. With his courage he led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. He could spend hours listening to his music and watch his dancing lights.

One of his favorite past times was listening to his cousins and siblings running about and playing. He will forever remain in our hearts.  Tyre had an amazing life surrounded by family and caregivers that loved him dearly and were touched by him and his amazing smile each and every day. Through his teaching us in life, we are able to create such wonderful memories and it has been a privilege to be his Nana.

Tyre leaves behind countless caregiver’s that provided love and support that enhanced and extended his quality of life. Tyre’s love extends to his wonderful nurses, Ms. Liz, Linda, Ursella, Cassandra, Ms. Silvia, Lynn, and many others that touched his life and are too numerous to mention. They gave Tyre so much love and dignity in life. 

Tyre is survived by his “Nana” Yvette Tolbert, Mother, Shantil Galloway; Grandfather, Willie Galloway; Papa, Todd Brown, sisters, Jermya Peoples and Jermia Peoples; uncles, Thomas Gordon and Willie Kennedy; and he was fortunate to have his Great Great Aunty, Dorothy Barnhill.  

Viewing hours are to be held Friday November 10, from 5 - 8 p.m. at Ray Williams Funeral Home, 301 N. Howard Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33606
