connection with people allowed him to obtain contracts with several local businesses. Ty’s true talents
were helping people and working with his hands. Ty loved his mother, Baltimore Ravens, traveling,
taking his mother wherever she wanted to go which was anywhere from a pro sports game or to the
rodeo in Cowtown. Did I mention that he LOVED his mother? He enjoyed working on his cars as well as
his friends cars and motorcycles. Ty could cut your hair, fix your car, tell you about yourself while he
was fixing you something to eat and have you cracking up all at the same time. We can’t leave out that
Ty also loved women, women and more women. Most of all he loved his friends and family with all of
his heart and soul.
