I know for certain
that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having
shared their love.
I am so blessed, for multiple reasons, I had the honor of not only being a co worker of Tykes but
he played a major influence in my boys lives as he coached them in basketball and introducing them to the fundamentals of
the sport. He always had a smile and made the kids laugh when he would show up in his sweatshirt that read "That Sh*T
Cray" I saw him two weeks ago and he said "Tell Donovan I will be on the sidelines" Yes he definitely will
Rest Easy My Friend and Thank You!!

There are not enough words to say what I am feeling right now. When I heard the news my
heart just sank. My friend, my golf partner, my brother has passed away. I never expected to hear anything like this. We have
had so many great times together and I will truly miss our golf & sports outings. I will always cherish those memories
and the laughs you gave us all. R.I.P. now my brother and remember to hollar "FORE" when you go to hit those golf
balls. I love you....

My prayers to the family. I have known Tyke
it seems forever. Growing up as neighbors in Locust Avenue and attending Penn Elementary school together. I ask God to wrap
his arms around your family at this time and give them comfort. To be there to support one and other and to continue to be
there for each other in the coming days. I know you are glory bound and the golf courses are lined in gold. R.I.P. Tyke. God
bless the family....
You will be missed, my prayers go out to the family, Anna stay strong and God will do the rest....

Maria, Whitney &
remember all the fun times at the phone company, the Carlisle community will
miss a great person who gave so much. Deepest sympathy to the family.
Tyke was unique with his funny brand of humor. He worked. He got up every day and worked. He got
a job with the phone company and he did it...for decades. Even when he was performing as an athlete, he competed every step.
He would always make me smile and chuckle with his funny comments. God bless you Tyke. We love you.
My condolescence to the family and friends.
Tyke was a good man and had a wonderful smile.
Grew up in the neighborhood and often talked to him. As I got older and
had my first home Tyke was the one who came and hooked up my phone. Great guy and it was a pleasure to know him
