had an uncanny way of
making a friend of everyone
Throughout his young life,
he always had a kind word,
smile and warm support
to offer those around
At age 16, a tragic car
accident took Tyler’s
life before he had
the chance to begin his
journey to adulthood.
In the spirit of Tyler
Richards, this scholarship
fund is intended to financially
and inspire its recipients
to strive for their best
Your support is greatly appreciated by those who will benefit, as well as all who believe Tyler's spirit lives on.

and Austin Richards
"A few more laughs and his dashing smile...
Might have done the trick for a very short while.
Taken so quickly, without any warning...
Little did we know, our Angel we would be mourning.
We will remember you always, with a smile on our face...
Your name never forgotten, not in this case.
So go now Tyler, feel free to fly...
Knowing you're our angel, Our Angel in Disguise."
