Tyler Scott StricklandNovember 23, 1988 ~ June 14, 2017 (age 28)
Tyler Scott Strickland age 28, passed away from injuries he sustained in an auto accident in his hometown of Grantsville, UT on Wednesday June 14, 2017.
Tyler (Scrappy) a nickname his grandpa Bill gave him at an early age, was born to Steven and Ann Strickland on November 23, 1988. Tyler made his grand entrance into this world four minutes after his twin sister Tenille, thus proving to be the first of many times he would let his sister be number one.
Tyler attended school in Grantsville, class of 2007. Shortly after high school he met Heather Marie Capell and they were married on February 26, 2011. Together they had two beautiful children Payton Marie and Ryker Kenneth Scott. His love for Heather was unconditional and wanted nothing more than to make her happy.
Tyler worked hard and made a career for himself with ISEC. In his nine years he progressed from laborer to Forman, in charge of all projects in the Salt Lake area. He met some amazing buddies there where he built a special bond with Snake, Beaver, and many more. He also had the opportunity during this time to work with his brother Greg and great friend Matt.
Tyler’s passion in life is his two children Payton and Ryker. Every spare moment he had you would find him cheering these two on no matter what they were doing; from Payton’s dance recitals to Ryker’s sports. During the warmer months, you’d always hear Payton and Ryker talking about their GO GO Buggy adventures with mom and dad, and their camping trips with David, Kaitlyn, Brad, Amy, and all the kids. These stories are truly memories everyone will hold deep in their hearts.
Tyler’s hobbies include going to the gym, back yard BBQ’s in his fire pit he was so proud of, golfing, hunting, anything outdoors, and helping Heather with all her Pinterest projects.
