With the deepest sadness, we announce the unexpected passing of our son, Tyler Dale Russakis.
Tyler, (T-Money), was 18 years old and had an unconditional love for his family and friends. Tyler was a son, brother, grandson, great grandson, friend, and soon to be uncle.
Those who knew Tyler, even just a little, had their heart touched in a special way. His personality, quick whit, and fun sense of humor radiated in every room. His sense of humor and infectious smile never failed to make everyone laugh and make every situation better. Making everyone feel comfortable, even in the hardest times, was a speciality of Tylers that not many people have.
Tyler surrounded himself with the best group of boys. His friendships were thick and they were always into something. Tyler had many hobbies. From fishing, to hunting, to “tooting” up trucks, Tyler was never bored. He was a hard worker and loved his job building fence. Whatever job Tyler was doing, he did it the best of his ability. He lived life in a way that everyone tries to, to the fullest and enjoying everyday. Tyler made this look easy.
He leaves behind his Mother and Father, Robert and Alida Russakis; Brother, Robert Russakis; Sister and Brother-in-law, Ashley and Billy Ninesling; Paternal Grandparents, Gust and Bernadine Russakis; Maternal Grandparents, Brant and Debbie McManus and Karen Blanton; Great-Grandparents, Martha McManus, Yaya Russakis, Barbara Lush, and many other Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. He was preceded in death by his Great Grandfathers, Pa McManus, PaPou Russakis, and Herb Lush, along with his Aunt Margie and Uncle Kent.
Tyler will be missed by so many. Those who knew Tyler, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. We want to honor Tyler, and make sure his name carries on and continues to bring happiness to this world. In the upcoming months will be starting a trade school scholarship in his name.
